Experience, learn and become a better photographer

Experience, learn and return home a better photographer—that’s our goal. We do this in an upbeat, casual and welcoming environment that will invigorate your artistic juices and help you further define your personal creativity, vision or style.

The Sedona Photography Symposium’s 2021 event “Unleash Your Inner Artist” is now a live virtual conference to be held on Friday, August 13 and Saturday, August 14.  We are delighted to be able to offer our world-class symposium presentations in streaming form (with recordings available to ticketholders afterwards)!  In addition to eliminating the continuing uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this allows us to dramatically lower the ticket price, providing an extraordinary value for our audience!

Also, Adam Schallau, an Arizona photographer celebrated for his images published by Arizona Highways Magazine, will still conduct his superb three-day post-symposium workshops in person at the Grand Canyon on August 16 to 18 and August 18 to 20

The nonprofit Sedona Camera Club, the organizer of this event, is grateful to the presenters for their flexibility in accommodating the program changes, which enables the  Club to continue offering this remarkable educational opportunity to photographers worldwide.
