The when, where and how of photographing wildflowers

Colleen Miniuk-Sperry and Paul Gill will make a special presentation at The Well Red Coyote on Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m., about the when, where and how of photographing wildflowers in Arizona.

Miniuk-Sperry and Gill are professional photographers and the co-authors of the recently published photo guidebook, Wild Arizona: Photographing Arizona's Wildflowers - A Guide to When, Where and How.

Using the photography featured in the book as examples, both from renowned outdoor photographers and as well as Miniuk-Sperry and Gill, attendees will learn:

• About practical resources to help predict when and where the wildflower, cactus, shrub, and tree blooms will occur throughout Arizona.

• Wildflower-specific techniques for capturing memorable landscape and macro photographs of this ephemeral event no matter the location.

• Notable locations near Sedona and across Arizona that bloom first so you can put your new "poppy-razzi" skills to work this spring!

Miniuk-Sperry is an award-winning, internationally published outdoor photographer and writer. Her work has been published in National Geographic calendars, Arizona Highways, AAA Highroads, Lighthouse Digest, InsideOutside Southwest, Sonora Es, Smith-Southwestern calendars, and a broad variety of other publications. She also leads photography workshops for the Arizona Highways Photography Workshops, Arizona Wildlife Federation, Through Each Others Eyes, and numerous private sessions.

Since 1975, Gill has turned all of his attention to photographing the grandeur of nature. His photographs have graced the cover and pages of the Arizona Highways, Nature's Best, Smith-Southwestern calendars and postcards, and many other scenic publications, calendars, books, and fine art galleries. His photographs are also featured within the Smithsonian Museum's permanent collection of nature photography. Gill is the founding director of the Arizona Nature photographers, Arizona Photo Scouts and Arizona Photo Guides.

The Well Red Coyote is located at 3190 W. 89A, at the corner of 89A and Dry Creek Road. For more information, call 282-2284 or go to
