What you'll do

We will meet at a predetermined location in Sedona/Village of Oak Creek, then will discuss camera settings and plans. Then we will head out to shoot. We may shoot at a parking lot without hiking in to the spot or hike into a trail. After that, we will start shooting the Milky Way for about an hour. Participants are welcome to ask any questions while shooting. After done shooting, we will head back and I will go over how to process the photos taken using Lightroom/Photoshop. This will last about total 2 hours. Please note that this is for beginners and intermediates, and more advanced techniques will not be taught. If you’re interested in more advanced shooting and processing techniques, please feel free to contact me! If you do not see a date when you’d like to participate, please feel free to contact me.

I am an artist/photographer specializing in landscapes and night sky photography. I spend most of my time shooting in Sedona, northern Arizona, and southern Utah. My passion also includes teaching others what I love to do and help them learn. Sedona and northern Arizona are known for night skies to some professional photographers. However, many visitors do not recognize that. I’d love to show them how amazing the night sky is in the area.

Had an awesome experience with Ted. I’m completely new to nighttime photography and had only a night to spend in Sedona. I really wanted to capture the night sky when I was there. Doing this experience with Ted was an awesome way to learn a lot, save time trying to find the perfect spots, and capture some awesome images. Thanks Ted!

Ted was fantastic! He was super knowledgeable. He was able to help me set up my camera with the proper settings in order to take the night photos I was hoping for. I got some amazing shots I was able to take notes and I learned a lot during the workshop. I will definitely be able to go home and use what he taught me as a base to create more great nighttime photos. The fact that he shows you how to process the photos in Lightroom as part of the workshop is priceless! He was super friendly, I feel it was a great value and personalized one on one instruction. I would highly recommend this workshop!
