Many people who follow landscape and outdoor photography will know of the amazing photographic opportunities afforded those photographers who make the trek to northern Arizona in the USA. The amazing rock formations are a photographer’s wonderland. And here’s why.

    Spectacular! I have heard one is required to hire a guide. Is that true? What is a good location to start? Thank you.

    I would be grateful for an email.

    Stunning images! I do appreciate the brush or tumbleweed to offset even this beauty. Seems to lend something to relate to… And yet keeps the nature quality in tact, unlike having a person as part of the composition. All are amazing photos of a breathtaking place.

    Beautiful rendering of interesting shapes, colors and forms not readily identifiable by the tourist visitor.

    In my efforts to develop additional art skills, it would be interesting to have the metadata of these shots as they seemed to have used similar technique to achieve different results.

    Very high quality. Top of line cameras and lenses?

    Great pictures, but Antelope Canyon is now a joke we paid for a half day photo tour, didnt get to lower antelope canyon, upper was crammed full of tourists making considered photography nearly impossib;le its just far to crowded now a days

      I agree. I was recently there. paid extra for a “photo tour” and, as recommended by most, tried to use my tripod, timed exposure and bracketing. My approach was futile.
      Other members of my tour were point and shoot tourists; arms extended in front of everyone’s lens and crowds pushing through. Tour operator and guides were extremely rude; ours did nothing to describe noteworthy locations or control movement. I finally dropped off alone and timed my shooting with ebb of crowd. Suggest taking fast wide angle lens and shoot handheld. An absolutely beautiful location.
