The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

When Bob Bradshaw first came to Sedona back in 1945, Sedona was a small agricultural cattle town ripe of opportunity for a young man to leave his mark in the world.

In 1949, Bob’s love for photography prompted the building of his first photo studio and Kodak Dealership located in uptown Sedona. Built next to The Hitching Post Restaurant, the business was constructed all by Fox Film set materials from the movie “Broken Arrow” starring Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Chandler, and Geraldine Page.

From these humble beginnings began a film industry that for many years was centered on the Bradshaw Ranch west of Sedona. 

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

In technology, we have made advances far superior to those that came before us, but, we have lagged behind in gaining or maintaining our spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures, and is available for book signings, and speaking engagements.
