Utah is a big place with several areas that attract photographers. I have spent my time in Zion, Bryce, the Moab and Blanding areas, Monument Valley. (The entrance to MV is in Utah; much of the Navajo reservation is in Arizona.)

As usual, your first step should be to purchase Martres’ Photographing the Southwest Vol.1: Southern Utah, 3rd Edition (March 2015), available at Amazon.

Another excellent source of information is at Americansouthwest.net. There are sections for each state in the area, often with maps.
