No more photographer tours at Lower Antelope Canyon?
« on: December 03, 2018, 10:37:43 am »

I called Dixie Ellis to schedule a repeat visit for a photographers tour and they indicated they no longer offer them and no one is allowed to bring a backpack, tripod, or large camera (they even said no GoPros). Anyone else heard that? Anybody know if there's a company/group that still offers this?

Probably because there are no more images left there.  :)

And other slot canyons. Disappointing, though: I had a great time there on the photographers' "tour" a few years ago.

Keep in mind, there are so many other unique slot canyons to photograph without all the crowds of Antelope.

I can see why they don't allow photographers into the Lower Antelope Canyon. It's much narrower than the upper canyon and tripods would block passage for others. When I went in 2008, I drove up to the Lower Canyon, paid my $20, was shown the way down and was allowed to wander through the canyon for 4 hours on my own photographing to my hearts content. I saw 2 other people in the canyon, one was a photographer.

Popularity of the canyons has since exploded and tripod wielding photographers just would take up too much room in the narrow canyon.
