Join us on this special on-the-road AzPPA workshop. 

Start off with a fun charted luxury bus trip (with educational activities planned for the bus ride) from the Hilton Phoenix Airport to Sedona's beautiful Red Rock Crossing Park. We will then return back to Hilton Phoenix Airport via the same bus.

Bob will be sharing some ideas on environmental portraiture using the red rocks of Sedona and the Crescent Moon State Park as a backdrop. Lighting techniques including multiple uses of reflectors and how to bring powerful studio lights on location will be shown. A look at posing ideas and things to watch for when the great outdoors beckons.

Make sure to bring your camera! This is guaranteed to be a fun and very informative hands-on seminar at one of the most beautiful locations in the country.

Bus Trip: 2 Hours To Sedona, 2 Hours Return To Phoenix

Total Event: 7 Hours

About The Instructor:

Bob is a 20 Year Professional Photographer with 16 of those years based in beautiful Sedona, Arizona. In addition to being a long time member of AzPPA who served as President for two terms, Bob is a Certified Professional Photographer who also holds the Master Of Photography, Master Artist and Photographic Crafstman from Professional Photographers of America. As Lumix Luminary Coates will also share how he uses the lightweight Panasonic cameras to get fully professional results using the Micro four thirds system.

FOOD: You may bring your own sandwiches on the bus for the trip up to Sedona and/or back down to Phoenix. We are looking into the option for you to prepay for catered deli sandwiches so they will be ready for you on the bus, but as of this moment plans are not finalized. We will notify all registrants if we are able to arrange this.

NOTE: We will have a limited number of seats on the luxury bus. AzPPA members will have first availability for seats on the bus until April 7th, and any remaining seats will open up to non-members afterwards for purchase.

Registration is not guaranteed until payment has been made. If event fills up, registrations not paid may be cancelled by AzPPA to make room. Bus reservation payments are non-refundable.

AzPPA Members that can not get a seat on the bus (or do not want to take the bus) can still attend this workshop by driving themselves to Sedona and meet up at Red Rock Crossing. Non Members are required to take the bus as part of this event. If you drive up yourself, the park will require $10 admission.
