Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell (Landscape Photography)

I was raised in a Phoenix neighborhood called Sunnyslope. I graduated from Sunnyslope High School in 1996, after which I studied, travelled and worked all over the country and overseas. Eventually, I returned to Phoenix, bought a home in Sunnyslope, and resumed hanging out with friends I’ve had since Kindergarten. This pattern is often repeated among former residents of Sunnyslope, hence it’s known as the “Vortex.” In 2007, I went camping with some Vortex friends at Lake Powell, where I shot all of these images on 35mm film.

We pitched tents on a beach. Being Memorial Day weekend in the desert, it was so damn hot we basically just stood in the lake all day, like this:

The next morning, I awoke before boat rush hour, and captured this lovely moment during sunrise:

Later, we toured Antelope Canyon, which is a beautiful sandstone canyon near Page, Arizona. The image below was the very first fine art print I sold – to a stranger – at the Sunnyslope Art Walk a couple years later:

Several images from the Antelope Canyon series were exhibited in 2010 in David Lujan’s office.

I see a seahorse in this one, and love the blue refracted light:

And one of my best sellers:

This one is my favorite; not sure why, I just love the mysterious feeling of it.

I hope these images bring a little bit of stillness to your day. Enjoy!



About Mosaic Collective, LLC

I am Holly Baumann Ambuehl, founding member of Mosaic Collective, LLC, which was founded in early 2017 and is based in Central Illinois. I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan. Mosaic Collective, LLC houses our rental property, my consulting contracts (with the nonprofit and public sectors on various work), and also my commercial and portrait photography business, which has been doing business as Holly Baumann Photography since 2008 long before the formation of our LLC. My blog posts feature client work, but I just love to write, so I also write about owning a business, food and drink, travel, and sometimes, my personal life! I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
