Behind-the-Scenes of the 2023 Grand Canyon River Trip & Photography Expedition
December 21, 2023
Here's a behind-the-scenes look at my most recent river trip. We spent 18 days rafting 225 miles of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
We photographed many great locations, including spending two nights at Nankoweap so we could hike to the granaries multiple times. We also photographed Elves Chasm, North Canyon, Deer Creek Falls, Blacktail Canyon, and more.
The Making of the Photos
Many of the photos in the post were made with a Fujifilm X-T5 mirrorless camera and several lenses, including the Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 XF, Fujifilm XF 18mm f/1.4, and a Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8. I also used my iPhone for several of the photos as it's what I had with me at the time. The photo of our boats and the Colorado River at night was made with my Fujifilm GFX 100S medium format camera and the GF 100-200mm f/5.6 lens.
A BIG thanks to the fantastic crew from Tour West! I look forward to seeing you again in April 2024 for the upcoming 10-day Grand Canyon rafting trip & photography expedition! We have a couple of spots open on the 2024 trip, and I'm taking names of those who would like to be on the 2025 trip which will be launching in late April. Contact me to save your spot!
