Photographer Ted Forbes of "The Art of Photography" recently travelled to the Grand Canyon while he was visiting Arizona. He got up early to get there before sunrise and we can follow along on his photographic journey in the video below.

It wouldn't be a behind the scenes video without some gear discussion. Forbes didn't skimp on the camera selection, he went with a Phase One medium format camera and a Hasselblad X1D mirrorless medium format camera. If you like the looks of his filter holder, that's a Wine Country Camera filter holder. The video footage from the Grand Canyon was captured using Forbes' Sony RX100 Mark V.

While gear is nice, the focus of the video is on Forbes' first-ever experience photographing the Grand Canyon, which he describes as a "spiritual experience." To see the gorgeous colors and textures of the Grand Canyon, watch the video below.
