About Robert Lefkow

Contact Photo of Robert Lefkow

Born in New York, I worked as an engineer until discovering the west in the early 90’s. After experiencing the incredible assortment of shapes, colors, and textures of the Colorado Plateau, I relocated to St. George and set to work improving my photographic techniques in an attempt to capture and share my surroundings.

My goal is to create unique images that hopefully capture some of the magic of the canyon country and desert southwest. I tend to concentrate on smaller portions of the big landscape, such as slot canyons, rock formations, abstract patterns, and Native American imagery.

Most of my free time is spent searching out new and exciting places to photograph. My interest in early American cultures has lead me to explore remote canyons, cliff dwellings, and rock art. The Colorado Plateau is so varied that my calendar is booked for the next 100 years. I look forward to the adventure and the chance to continue my photographic journey through this amazing landscape.
