The Hunt’s Mesa Photography Tour is an add-on for participants to the Lake Powell Workshop 2021. Non-participants are also welcome! By joining this adventure you will be able to photograph Monument Valley from the bird’s-eye view. This secluded place is tucked away in the remoteness of Monument Valley. The access is restricted. It requires a Navajo guide to get there. The “road” is difficult and challenging and will be done in the guide’s car. The beauty of the place attracts people from all over the world by its amazing geologic formations and photographic opportunities.

Afternoon at Hunt's Mesa

We will start the tour in Page, once the Lake Powell Workshop is finished. All participants will have the opportunity to buy some new beverages and food in Page before we head to Kayenta, AZ. Each participant will do the 1 ½ hour drive from Page to Kayenta in their own car. If you are a non participant to the Lake Powell Photography Workshop 2021 I will meet you in Kayenta. We will proceed from Kayenta to meet with our Navajo guide, Ray Begay, at the Monument Valley Visitor Center to leave than our cars at his place overnight. Ray will take us up to Hunt’s Mesa in his car. Take a deep breath before we hit the off-road trails. This will be one of the most adventurous 4-wheeling you ever will have done. Ray is a true expert out there. I headed out with him several times.

You will need camping gear (tent, mattress, sleeping bag, headlamp) as we will stay one night up at Hunt’s Mesa for a late afternoon and an early morning shooting. After breakfast we will return to Kayenta. Our guide will take us to some hidden photographic gems on our way back to Kayenta. We should be back to our cars around noon.

I am sure that you will return home with unforgettable memories and stunning images on your memory cards from this short side photo adventure.

Date: October 24 – 25, 2021

DISCLAIMER

Any trips I organize or organize with another photographer are private and non-business. I am a physician by trade and I take people along with me on my trips because I enjoy the company and the opportunity to help people get to know and photograph the Southwest. I do not make a business out of it. My goal is to have a pleasant, safe trip with artistic value photography as a result. We share expenses, gear, ideas, and experiences. We will not be going anyplace on public lands that are not generally open to the public. No photographs you take on public lands may be used to promote the sale or use of a product or service. We will not do any “commercial filming” as defined in the Code of Federal Regulations.

We will respect nature, leave only footprints where we are allowed to leave footprints, and take only our images, memories, and friendships home with us.

***

Digital photography, social media and modern travel patterns changed nature & landscape photography radically. The amount of people visiting the wilderness increased over the last two decades exponentially. Nature is coping poorly with the increased human presence. It is time that we all, who value nature and photography, question our behavior out there and prioritize the well-being of nature over photography. As such I support the entities Leave no Traces, Nature First, Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition and Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance.
