Sedona Photo Adventure

Sedona, United States

Experience hosted by Andrei

6.5 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English, Romanian

What you'll do

This is a half day tour of a few very scenic locations situated in the Sedona area. These locations are accessed via moderate hikes. You should be in good physical condition since our hikes involve walking on nature trails which, at times, may require some scrambling or dealing with loose rocks, but nothing dangerous or very strenuous. We will have a break between the hikes when you get a chance to recharge your batteries and discuss any technical details related to photography and your experience. Should you need photography tips, I'm very happy to help making the most of your time here.

The tour is designed for those with a passion for photography who want to experience some special locations in Sedona, as well as those interested to take home professional photographs -- much better than a selfie. I know some very photogenic locations along our itinerary where we can take nature portraits and we'll make good use of them. In less than a week after completing the tour, you will receive the best photos of your visit and be able to use them at full resolution; picture yourself among the red rocks of Sedona in a big print hanging on your wall!

While the COVID-19 situation is still pending I will try my best to maintain physical distance between myself and the guests and I'll ask everybody in the group to do the same for everyone's well being.

I've been a landscape photographer for more than 15 years, capturing the amazing nature of the American Southwest. I'm based in Arizona and I'm eager to share my knowledge and experience with anyone visiting our state and having an interest in capturing the unique nature of this land!

I've been published in multiple national and international magazines, such as National Geographic, Arizona Highways, PHOENIX magazine, Hoerzu and Times (UK), as well as frequently mentioned in local social media (check my IG @ArizonaPhotoAdventures).

I travel to all corners of Arizona, but I particularly enjoy Sedona, with its magnificent red rocks. I like merging hiking and photography as a way to better experience nature. Sure, Sedona can be seen from the roadside, but to truly discover its secrets, a good hike will take you to unique vantage points

Where you'll be

In the morning we hike along a trail near central Sedona that will take us to superb views of Sedona, as well as a little-known natural arch.
Depending on the pace of the first hike, in the afternoon we may visit a location along Oak Creek, which affords some of the best views of Cathedral Rock.
Late afternoon we'll hike up near one of the tallest buttes in Sedona, which has some of the best vantage points for capturing the sunset in Sedona.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 7 reviews.

I cannot recommend Andrei enough. He made my photo adventure absolutely fantastic! We had to modify the original plan due to some blocked roads and also due to me not being well-acclimated to higher altitudes (I’m from FL a and it was my 2nd day in Sedona.) Andrei was very flexible and accommodating, while making sure my expectations and requests were met. He took a lot of pictures of me, which were customized to my needs (my business website). He also showed me some tips and tricks how to take better pictures and took me to breathtaking places. Thank you, Andrei, for providing this memorable in so many ways experience!!!

This was one of my best experiences while in Sedona. Highly recommend! Although I am a little camera shy, Andrei made me feel comfortable. We hiked to places I probably wouldn't have gone to on my own as a solo traveler. He knew some less crowded yet beautiful locations. The outcome was AMAZING photos that I will cherish forever! Not only are Andrei's photography skills excellent but he is also a great person to spend the day with. The next time I am back in Sedona I will definitely book him again!

My experience with Andrei was AMAZING! I was traveling alone and would have never have found or been comfortable enough to explore had I not had Andrei there to guide me and make me feel confident enough to step out of my comfort zone. He provided guidance every step of the way. He gave great direction for my photos and made me feel very confident throughout my time with him. I am not comfortable or at ease in front of a camera, but he encouraged me the entire time and made the entire day spectacular! I highly recommend working with Andrei if you visit Arizona! Without a doubt, book with him.

This was a wonderful experience! Andrei did a great job of communicating the meeting location and how to prepare for the day. Highly recommend wearing comfortable shoes with a good grip, this a long day of hiking. Dress comfortably and be ready for a workout. While it doesnt require you to be in shape, its definitely a plus lol. Andrei was patient with us when we stopped to catch our breath and take pictures. His final photos were breathtaking 😍 Although we are awaiting the final product (we just finished our tour), Andrei sent us a preview that truly has us eager to see the others. Definitely a must book!

My wife had an interest in exploring the natural beauty of Sedona and capturing images with her camera. She chose Andrei’s company as a guide because she was told he would share photos he took during the hikes. Andrei made suggestions for layout and composition of photos. He had communicated well before we came to Sedona, asking for preferences and balance of hiking and photography. Their hikes were excellent and Andrei made sure she was able to get photos of the setting sun. Many miles, many great photos, and a couple of blisters on the feet!

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!!! I was a little unsure about the level of hiking/climbing involved, but Andrei was very encouraging and helped dispel any doubts I had. He was beyond accommodating and extremely thoughtful in his photography and leading me through multiple trails and locations and teaching me about various techniques. This was a truly remarkable way to see the beauty of Sedona without the hoards of tourists around. Unforgettable!
