National Parks Film Photography – Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend

Loose Rocks. Steep Trails. Boots Recommended.

This is gonna be a long one, so sorry not sorry. This past May was my 10 year wedding anniversary (!) and to celebrate Matthew and I took a road trip out to Arizona and Utah to visit some National Parks and cool places that I’d never been to but always wanted to see. This country is big and beautiful and the scenery far exceeded my expectations. We started our trip at the south rim of the Grand Canyon, stopping at a few different viewpoints along the way. Then drove to Page, Arizona where we took a tour of upper Antelope Canyon and then went to Horseshoe Bend. Then drove up to Utah to visit Bryce Canyon National Park. All of these places were so incredible to look at and be surrounded by so much nature was really peaceful and inspiring. It’s hard to pick a favorite and I’d recommend all of these spots to anyone else looking for a southwest parks adventure!

Almost all of these images are 35mm film. Most were my Fuji Klasse with Kodak Ektar 100, which captured the colors so vividly. The film shots from Antelope Canyon were Fuji Natura 1600 and handled the dark caverns well. Some shots were a Superheadz Wide & Slim toy camera with Fuji Superia 800 film and some really cool flare from the plastic lens. And then a couple iPhone and DSLR shots thrown in for good measure!

  • I LOVE this!! Holy cow. Every single time I see your photos, it makes me want to get out and shoot more film.

    That's it! I'm buying an RV and road tripping and it will be your fault because this post is long and it's all kinds of pretty.

    Awesome! My wife and I are leaving Sunday for our 10th anniversary for nearly the same trip! We are going to North Rim, Antelope Canyon and then Zion. I was trying to see examples of Antelope Canyon on film and found this blog entry. Thanks for talking about your trip and showing your great photos!
