About Susan Magnano

Susan Magnano (NY) is a photographer, an explorer and an educator who loves capturing the beauty of the people and places around her. 

After getting her start as a photojournalist, Susan transitioned her skill for capturing moments into shooting events and portraits. As an award-winning photographer with over 15 years of experience, Susan is a respected educator in the industry and now shares her innovative techniques and globally cultivated perspective on her Photo Adventures.    

Photour Adventures was created out of Susan’s desire to share her passion for photography and travel through workshops and photowalks.  She loves chasing the best light from sunrise to sunset through red rock canyons, lush forests and iconic city streets. Once the sun sets, Susan typically springs into action, teaching her favorite subject, light painting and shooting the stars till the wee hours of the morning.   

She leads photo walks for Canon & B&H, partners with Merrell & Campmor and is an ambassador for Litra & Light Painting Brushes. What she loves most about photography is the ability to capture a moment, tell a story, and evoke a feeling. By teaching photography she assists others to perfect their skills, to create their vision and share their own story.   

When she is not teaching, she is freelancing as a set photographer for the Food Network, working the red carpet for the Tribeca Film Festival and documenting natural disaster recovery sites with 8 Days of Hope and The Salvation Army.
