Many of the canyon’s signature peaks and pinnacles crouch, seemingly just out of reach, beneath the towering North Rim. Photographers have long flocked to the lofty overlooks of the higher rim to capture some of the most compelling compositions found anywhere in North America.
The goal of this workshop is to have participants in the right place at the right time with the right skills to make images with impact.
After a short meeting at 9:00 am class embarks to aspen groves, Angels Window, and a sunset shoot at Cape Royal. We aim to back at the North Rim by 9:00 pm.
Today's activities take class to Point Imperial for sunrise and a late afternoon hike on the Widforss Trail.
Meeting early, class heads to Bright Angel Point for sunrise. After a short break, we head to the North Kaibab Trail for a hike and photography below the Rim. The day is wrapped-up with a sunrise stroll on the Transept Trail.
Sunrise at Cape Royal followed by a thorough review/critique and Lightroom demonstration.
Suzanne is a professional freelance photographer, author and workshop instructor, whose work regularly appears in Arizona Highways Magazine, as well as numerous national publications such as National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photographer and publications for the Nature Conservancy, Global Action Team, and Smith SouthWestern. Her prints are also exhibited in both commercial and private collections around the country.
An Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom and Photoshop, Suzanne teaches workshops in Landscape Photography for Arizona Highways Photo Workshops as well as her own private workshops and classes.
Suzanne was born and raised amidst the green rolling hills of the English countryside but is now completely at home surrounded by the arid desert and swirling sandstone of the Southwest. She finds Arizona a land of intense beauty and preposterous contradiction.
Her photographs capture the diversity of waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, autumn leaves, and desert sands, from the magnitude of the immense landscape to the smallest, most discreet of details.
“The desert can be unforgiving of even the smallest errors, treating the unprepared harshly. But, for the few with passion, those who are willing to begin their trek at the end of the road, the secret world of the Southwest is revealed.”
Suzanne loves to challenge the ruggedness of the land, the great distances to be traveled, and intense weather conditions to capture images of Arizona and the Southwest that expose its many treasures and extremes.
Her images reflect her keen sense of curiosity, patience, and the ability to see the world and its magic places in new and creative ways.

Our family’s experience was nothing short of amazing! "Slim" provided a perspective we would have never been able to get on our own and we learned so much. Her passion for the Canyon and what she does came through too, which made our time something we’ll never forget!”
The guides were awesome – so educational and patient!!! Encouraging & helpful in every way. Such an amazing first visit to the canyon – Life changing to have experienced the GC up close & personal… Thank you so much!”
I've brought many School groups to the Field Institute and the quality of instruction provides them with an understanding of American Indian cultures, diverse ecology, and geologic history. Students leave with a stronger sense of self confidence, an intimate connection to nature, and memories that will last a lifetime.”
Top to bottom, the Institute exceeded all of my expectations .... they ensured we packed wisely for our trip and saved me from lugging around 5 lbs junk I didn't need. Overall, it's packed with value that I don't think commercial outfitters would provide, and delivered a deeply rich experience.”
