Mike Buchheit

Mike Buchheit is director of the Grand Canyon Field Institute, a professional landscape photographer and instructor, freelance travel writer, and a popular lecturer on a wide variety of Grand Canyon-related topics. As a long-time resident, 3,000-mile hiker, and frequent river runner, the Iowa native has gained an intimate knowledge of the park that he calls home.

This intimacy is most obvious in his prose and photography. The latter has become his passion of late. Mike’s portfolio includes hundreds of unique images of the Grand Canyon and greater Southwest. His photographs are sold in the Tanglewood Fine Art gallery in Flagstaff, AZ, on the website Grand Canyon Prints, and in a number of sales outlets in Grand Canyon National Park. A number of Mike’s images appeared in the Lasting Light: 125 Years of Grand Canyon Photography exhibit and companion book; a collaboration between Grand Canyon Association, Hance Partners, Inc., and Northland Publishing.

Mike Buchheit is the director of the Grand Canyon Field Institute, and a resident of Grand Canyon National Park. His photography and writings have appeared in a number of publications both in the United States and abroad. Mike has amassed over 2,000 Grand Canyon photographs, both 35mm and medium format, as well as black and white. His portfolio and services are available for hire.
