My job as a photographer has afforded me the opportunity to travel the globe and see some of the most beautiful places on Earth. Its funny that one of the prettiest spots on the planet is in my home state of Arizona yet I hadn’t been there since I was a child, and NEVER with a camera! Its time to change that…

Last week I had one of my good photographer friends, Guy Rhodes come out to Arizona for a few days of vacation as well as some storm chasing and scenery shooting around the valley. Lets start off with my favorite images from the trip up to the Grand Canyon with Guy as well as my buddy Justin Tooley.

On the drive back to Phoenix Guy was super impressed by how well you could see the Milky Way Galaxy in the darkness of the Arizona desert so we stopped for a few minutes of shooting.
