Beyond Zion


The Light of Zion & Beyond

Our Zion Photo Tour explores the sunset light of Zion National Park.  Zion defies words at times, particularly when the light and landscape combine to put on a show for the eyes.  Vertical sandstone walls appear as mountains from the canyon bottom which makes this landscape so striking to see and photograph.

There’s so much more to see beyond the icons here.  We’ll escape the crowds so you too can see, and feel, why this place is so special.

The Details

Zion Private Photography Tour

Our Zion Photo Tour is offered daily for all skill levels of photography.  We provide professional instruction every step of the way, no getting lost in groups.

Our photo tours are always more than simply getting to the “right place at the right time”.  We like to think of it as the best place at the appropriate time.  Come join us to see what we mean and put it into practice.

  • Minimal hiking  is required for many great locations to photograph.
  • Hiking is customized for your abilities.
  • You must be able to carry and transport all of your own photography gear but we’re able to help within reason.  Please arrange this with us prior to booking if you need assistance.
  • Zion is between 4000 – 6000 feet in elevation.  Stay hydrated in all seasons.  Summer is blazing hot so hydration and sun protection is mandatory.
  • December – February: Generally quiet except Christmas & Holidays.  Snow can transform this landscape dramatically but it’s unpredictable.  Also no shuttle so you can drive into Zion Canyon.
  • March – May: Busy.  Spring means crowds and also abundant water due to melting snow.  Temps are about perfect for hiking and activities.
  • June – September: Busiest time of year and HOT.  The Narrows typically opens in late June as highs are now pushing 100F daily.
  • October – November:  Fall colors, cool mornings, pleasant weather for hiking makes this time of year a favorite.  Still busy but manageable. 
  • Personal Favorite Time: Anytime there’s a storm (rain/snow).  Watching a storm pass and clear in Zion will take your breath away.
