“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore”
– The Wizard of Oz
Flagstaff, Arizona, is a magical place. Located at an elevation of 7,000 feet in north central Arizona, this charming and busy town is perfectly situated near some of the most breathtaking and beautiful sights of the southwest, including Grand Canyon National Park, Humphrey’s Peak (the highest point in Arizona), Meteor Crater, and the Colorado Plateau. From Flagstaff, you can drive for less than an hour and find prehistoric lava flows, thick pine forests, sparkling lakes, snow-capped mountain peaks, Native American structures, and Red Rock canyons.
For nearly 100 years, Flagstaff has been a popular choice for filmmakers and photographers looking for stunning natural settings. Hundreds of films have been made near here, and yours could be next. Depending on what your Flagstaff camera needs are and where you plan to shoot, you’ll need permits and permissions from one or more agencies. The city of Flagstaff, for example, requires a special events permit for any filming that impacts street use, park use, or right-of-ways, while the Grand Canyon National Park and the Navajo Nation have their own permit and fee structures for use.
