Travel and Advertising Photographer Susan Seubert 2018 – The Year In Pictures

Travel and Advertising Photographer Susan Seubert 2018 – The Year In Pictures

2018 was an extraordinary year for travel and exploration!  I circumnavigated Iceland (twice), sailed in French Polynesia, island hopped in the Caribbean, gave a TEDx talk in Virginia, photographed stories here in Oregon but also in Ireland and Canada, spent time surfing and snorkeling with sea turtles and other ocean creatures in Hawaii, taught a photography workshop in Arizona and explored Europe by river boat.

Below is a collection of pictures from 2018, which I hope you enjoy.

If you want to see what adventures are in store for 2019, please follow me on Instagram.

Thank you for visiting my blog and Happy New Year!

Travel Photographer Susan Seubert shoots Maui for Voyeur Magazine

It’s hard to believe that it’s already February in this new year!  I’m currently on Maui, marooned on shore because of a quick moving storm that’s brought strong winds and locally heavy showers to the area, putting a damper on my humpback whale photography.  However, the inclement weather gives me an opportunity to share my latest story about the island of Maui, photographed for Virgin Australia’s inflight magazine, Voyeur.  The story is online in the January 2017 issue and features an insider’s take on our favorite Hawaiian Island.  The story proves once again that there is always something new to discover from a wonderful taco truck to the classic Hana Highway.  Take a quick break from your winter and enjoy a stroll on the island of Maui.  Mahalo for visiting and a hui ho!

Commercial Photographer Susan Seubert shoots the Charles Hotel

Last week we wrapped up a 4 day shoot at The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA.  If you are planning on visiting the Boston area, or need to stay near Harvard University, this is the place!  The property recently went through a large scale renovation and needed proper images to showcase the gorgeous upgrades. We spent 4 days photographing interiors for the hotel’s advertising needs.

The first image for their campaign is online!Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 8.35.21 AM

Here are some behind the scenes from our production.

Susan Seubert Photography at Tanque Verde Ranch

I’m just back from two days in the saddle and on the ground photographing at the Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Arizona with J Public Relations firm.

Tanque Verde is a beautiful cattle and guest ranch just outside the city of Tucson, situated on 60,000 acres of gorgeous desert landscape.  The property also is located adjacent to Saguaro National Park, home to its namesake cactus.

The property boasts all the amenities of a luxury hotel, however the authentic American West experience is what really drew me in. I’ve loved horses since I was a child and take every opportunity to pack my riding boots for a shoot.  The desert landscape is expressed beautifully at Tanque Verde.

The ranch offers walks with a naturalist guide who can identify the myriad native plants and animals that you’ll see either on foot or on horseback.

Certain nights they offer an outdoor bbq, complete with fire pits and margaritas – their signature prickly pear margarita is not to be missed!  You can get those at the Dog House saloon which is open daily.  If you want to take your holiday relaxation to the next level, check out their spa offerings.

I could have easily spent a week photographing at Tanque Verde, and I look forward to my next visit!

Giddyup!
