Secret Slot Canyon Photo Tour

We'll pick you up in Kanab, UT at 8AM sharp to begin your tour.  We'll load everyone into our lifted 4WD vehicle to navigate the rough, sandy roads.  Some folks have as much fun on the drive as they do in the canyon!  The drive will take around 30 mins and then we'll spend at least a couple hours to exploring and photographing the slot canyon. The hike through the canyon is quite easy, with only one rock section that requires a little scrambling.  Your guide will help you get up and down this part. There are various sections of the canyon and the light will change quickly throughout the morning.  We'll follow the light and get you to the best places at the best time. You'll gasp at the beautiful sandstone colors and striations.  The soft reflected light is perfect for photography and you'll have a hard time putting the camera away.  Best of all, we'll pretty much have this canyon to ourselves, so you won't have to worry about having lots of people in your photos!  Depending on time, your guide may also take you to see some Native American ruins and rock art.  We'll begin our drive back to Kanab around 11:30AM, getting you back to town by noon. Professional photography instruction is included on all tours.  We are familiar with most makes/models of cameras and will help you with your settings, composition, and technique.  Make sure you bring a tripod for the best results!  Wide angle lenses are best to help capture the grandeur of the canyon.
