The Kolb Brothers: daring, persistent, Grand Canyon legends. Their studio stands before you.

Ellsworth Kolb arrived here in 1901, Emery in 1902. First located in a tent, their photo business grew with Grand Canyon tourism. They eventually produced more than 250,000 photos. Adverturers, they explored remote areas of the canyon - always with camera in hand. In 1911-1912 they shot the first motion picture of a river trip through the canyon, a film that Emery presented here for nearly 60 years.

Ellworth left Grand Canyon in 1924, but Emery remained and ran the studio with his wife and daughter. Emery died here in 1976, age 95, having spent his life preserving Grand Canyon on film.
