Photographer Tours: Tailor-made or customized tours.

"Nowhere in the world can find one a similar effect of nature's work. Words alone - the thousand-foot pyramid and castles, the slender tower, bridges and arches - cannot begin to describe the sandstone formations that dominate Monument Valley."

Josef Muench.

Many famous and not-yet-so-famous professional, senior amateur and amateur photographers from all over the world have called upon our experience and knowledge of both Monument Valley and Mystery Valley to shoot the pictures of their artistic dreams. We gladly take you on a private tailor-made tour we'll especially design in accordance with your wishes and ideas.

Please contact us in advance, so that we can start making the plans for your ultimate photographic experience!

Ever since the first professional photographer, Josef Muench, entered the area, Monument Valley has been a truly one-of-a-kind photographer's paradise. Josef came to Monument Valley in 1936 to take his first photographs. When Harry and Mike Goulding, one of the first "pioneers" to live in Monument Valley, needed materials to promote the then undiscovered area in Hollywood, they turned to their friend Josef Muench. Josef made a special album of black and white photographs. That album really sent the right message home! Later, in 1937, Josef made his very first Kodachrome color photograph in Monument Valley.

Now you can enjoy and explore this photographer's paradise for yourself. Our Navajo guides are born and raised in Monument Valley... and who else is better qualified and knows the best places and camera angels that someone who lived there all his life?

Here follows a small selection of what you can expect. So... enjoy...
awesome beauty... silence... camera... action!
