    Episode 018: Dawn Kish (Photographer & Filmmaker)

    Episode 018: Dawn Kish (Photographer & Filmmaker)

    Join Harry Potter and Ron Weasley as they go #beyondFLG with Dawn Kish, photographer, conservationist, and documentary filmmaker. The subject of Dawn's work includes documenting stories of indigenous folks in the Southwest, hanging off walls in Yosemite, and other various adventure activities. Some of her clients include Arizona Highways, Grand Canyon Trust, National Geographic, Patagonia, and Sports Illustrated. She also worked as a river guide for the USGS and describes the “river as being a part of her, it is in her heart and soul.”

    As a film director, Dawn directed the short film, “Can’t Beat This Place for Fun” which was shown at the Mountain Film Fest in 2021. This film was an ode to a local boat shop that keeps the tradition of wooden boat building alive while honoring the story of Martin Litton’s Grand Canyon Dory.

    Currently, Dawn is in the process of shooting a new film titled, “Tad’s Emerging World.” A super compelling idea in which Dawn is documenting the epic landscape of Glen Canyon using an old Crown Graphic 4x5 camera, which was used by Tad Nichols to document Glen Canyon in his book, “Glen Canyon: Images of Lost World.”

    In this episode, Dawn discusses the Tad project including its origins and what its been like creating thus far, what got her into photography, and her connection to Flagstaff.
