Antelope Slot Canyons

Scott Papek releases, “Angel Heart”

Within the ever-changing landscape of Northern Arizona’s Navajo land lies two popular slot canyons, Upper and Lower Antelope Canyon. No one knows exactly when the Antelope Canyon was first discovered. According to older Navajos, entering the canyon was once like crossing the threshold of a cathedral. In order to be in the right frame of mind, they would most likely pause before walking I, preparing for protection and respect. This moment of reflection probably allowed the Navajo to leave with uplifting insight into what Mother Nature has to offer all of us, and to be in harmony with something greater than themselves.

Research for Landscape Photography spots

I get asked often how do I know where to go shoot next? I don’t want to discredit the research and vision that’s put in but it’s pretty simple. I’m pretty sure the things you photograph or paint is what you care the most about. I care about water. It could be an ocean, stream, lake, river or waterfall. Everything about being around water hits all my senses at once and instantly puts a spell over my body. Not like voodoo shit but it’s pretty incredible.

Fall Lake Colors

Fall Colors on a Lake

After an interesting conversation with a collector of mine he suggested that I should not label where my photos are taken. It’s an interesting concept and I believe he is right. My style has never been documenting certain places it’s about capturing the scene in front of me.

This is a photograph in the fall with beautiful reflections on a lake.
