Sedona, AZ • Photograph by Susie Reed

Susie Reed shares her passion for photography in her Sedona, Arizona photography workshops and tours. She's an inspiring teacher who helps beginners to pros with all kinds of gear take better pictures and get comfortable using complex cameras and photo software.

She explains creative and technical aspects of photography and helps people speed up their learning curves. She teaches how to shoot and do post-processing, which she believes when paired well together are a recipe for successful photos.

If you're an experienced photographer Susie can help you improve and branch out. If you're just starting out, want to refresh your skills or have invested in gear you feel overwhelmed trying to figure out, she can guide you through the maze of options to some of the best ones and help you establish a foundation to build on.




Susie takes the mystery out of camera settings. She explains shutter speeds, f-stops and ISOs to use for different situations. She can help you determine if you should shoot jpg and/or raw, show how to bracket, shoot HDR, panoramas, running water and stars, use photo filters, tripods and more. She also shares good composition tips and explains ways to develop your own unique eye.

"Thank you for giving me such helpful instruction in
such a relaxed and supportive way. You're a wonderful
photographer and a marvelous instructor. I'm practicing
my new knowledge and working on that muscle memory. I feel
much more confident and knowledgeable" C. Davis, San Rafael, CA
