Photography buffs from Sedona homes will be pleased to know that Sedona Photofest is back, after taking last year off due to the pandemic. This year’s event will be held virtually, but next year’s Photofest will be in person. While virtual events can have their downsides, it’s definitely a plus to be able to relax at your Sedona real estate while listening to the talks given by expert photographers. Mark your calendar for Friday, June 11th through Sunday, June 13th.
Sedona Real Estate Owners Learn from Local Professional Photographers
This year’s featured speaker is Shannon Wild, who has worked as a wildlife photographer in Africa with the United Nations, as well as non-profit and commercial organizations. She’ll deliver the keynote address and discuss issues and techniques in wildlife photography. Twelve more professional photographers will also be speaking and giving workshops. Several might be familiar to those living in Sedona homes. Kelli Klymenko is the owner and organizer of the event and a local photographer. Betty Hum is also local. Her work is displayed at Goldstein Gallery. Joe Llama is an astronomer at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, as well as an accomplished photographer. Bob Coates is another local photographer, whose work spans the globe as well as everything from portraits to landscapes to interiors.
Sedona Photofest was founded in 2010 with a vision of offering photography education to everyone from beginners to experts. By 2015, it was a three-day event with talks and seminars given by professional photographers in subjects including wildlife photography, underwater photography, iPhone photography (or iPhoneography!), and fashion photography. The wide range of subjects means that there will be something to interest every photographer.
The photofest is completely free and open to everyone. Visit Sedona Photofest online to get more details. You can see the full lineup of photographers and find links to their websites to see samples of their stunning work.
