Grand Canyon National Park:

Filming/Photography Permits are issued for photography, filming, and associated sound recording to ensure protection of resources, to prevent significant disruption of normal visitor uses, or when they involve props, models, professional crews and casts or set dressings. Permits are required for access to areas normally closed to the visiting public.

To apply for a permit, please complete a Grand Canyon National Park filming application form and submit it to the Filming Permits Coordinator allowing sufficient time for evaluation by the park staff before the start date of the proposed activity to be conducted in the park.

Navajo Nation:

The Navajo Tribal membership is estimated to be approximately 200,000 based on 25,000 square miles covering a large portion of Arizona, a part of New Mexico and a small section of Utah. The topography of the territory includes mountain peaks which reach elevations of 8,000 to 10,000 feet and desert valleys where the elevation may be as low as 4,000 feet. The climate of the region varies according to topography, but is generally cool and arid. NAVAJOLAND, has it all. Wide open spaces with inviting mountains and incredible sunsets.

Please be advised the Navajo Nation Parks & Recreation, in addition to the National Park Service each have an approval process and separate fee structure. Navajo Film Office does not negotiate with the Parks fees. Navajo Film Office can help coordinate and will assist both production & NNPR/NPS by providing information, recommendations, etc.
