Hi fellow 'hoggers..
I'm taking a trip to Phoenix and planning on going to Sedona.My wife tells me it's an awesome place to take photos, but I'm not familiar with the area at all. Any suggestions? (nikon d7100, will have my Tamron 18-270 and Nikon 35 & 50 mm 1.8 prime lenses with)

I strongly suggest that you include a short trip to the Sedona airport for a 360-view of the city & surrounding area.

If you are going to be in Sedona then stop in at Jerome, Az either on the way up, or the way back. It is well worth the extra time involved to see Jerome.

My daughter lived in Phoenix for six years and we never missed an opportunity to visit Sedona. It is truly beautiful! We haven't been there since 2004 but a must visit for me was a photo gallery in the Tlaquepaque shopping area. I don't remember the name but looking up the website for Tlaquepaque there is an Eclectic Image Gallery that seems to be what I remembered. I was most interested in the black and white images. Really worth a visit for a photographer! Enjoy your trip.

I know that in the Slide Rock area there was a fire this year in May. It burned over 22,000 acres. I would call ahead and see if the trip is worth it this year. Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell, And the Grand Canyon are all within a Days drive of Sedona and as someone else mentioned Jerome.

The fire area earlier this year was north of Sedona, and west all paved roads. Fire damage is mostly out-of-sight from most tourist vantage points: http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/slide-fire-closures.jpg .

We went out that way last Sept. and I can assure you, ANYWHERE you go you will be faced with gorgeous scenic views. (Bring your wallet! We found Sedona rather pricey.) We did make it to Red Rock Nat. Forest which was beautiful, lots of birds and red rocks. Also, take a drive down 179 for other fantastic views and photo ops. Have a Great Time!

Be sure to visit the church designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright

If you take photos of stars, or even sunsets, airport mesa is the place to go. It is pitch black up there at night (barring a full moon) and you'd be amazed at the stars that can be seen up there.
Verde Canyon railroad is a nice side trip, too.

We did the pink jeep tour. Excellent and well worth the time and money if you like a little adventure.

You don't say if you like hiking, but if so there are lots of hikes right out of Sedona with pristine red rock views. Go to the ranger station in town for suggestions. (I did the Soldier Pass loop which was easy-moderate, and splendid.)

Yeah the Pink Jeep tour for scenics and adventure is great. Just about anywhere for shots. Wide angle is best. Planning the Verde Canyon Train in Sept. myself. check this out with multiple flatbed covered cars to shoot from. Travel is slow so it is ideal for shooters.

Beautiful area. I was just there earlier this month, unaffected by the fire that was still simmering. great hiking. certainly worth a Pink Jeep Tour (book online early). I also used D7100, primarily with Tokina 11-16mm and Tamron 28-75. Oh, andf a tripod. dawn comes early but get out there. And I recommend browsing Trip Advisor thoroughly, I learned best access to Cathedral Rock is from the end of Verde School Road and hike in about a half mile.

Enjoy!
