Grand Teton Fall Photo Workshop
October 1-7, 2023
Join me to photograph the magnificent landscapes and wildlife of Grand Teton National Park. I'll take you to iconic locations like Oxbow Bend, Moulton Barns, and Schwawbacher's Landing for landscapes. Then we will photograph bison, elk, pronghorn, moose, and other wildlife. This is a small group workshop with only three clients.
October 1 - Arrive at Jackson airport and check in to our townhome. We may search for wildlife around our neighborhood or go for a sunset image in the park.
October 2 thru 6 - Each morning we will leave before sunrise to go into the park. We will search for wildlife to photograph at first light or set up our tripods to capture iconic landscapes. We will return to the townhome mid-day to relax and review images. We will head back out to look for wildlife an hour or two before sunset. We will have dinner at the townhome most nights. There is always the option to go into Jackson for dinner. We will spend each night learning how to improve our photography.
October 7 - One last morning game drive before check out.

Some Final Thoughts
I can't think of a better place to enjoy learning how to create beautiful images than Grand Teton National Park. And fall is the absolute best time of year. Seeing the aspens in all their golden glory and hearing the bugle of the majestic elk is so special. We can't know for sure when the peak color will happen or what the weather will hold. But, my experience over the last several years is that the first week of October is the perfect time. I'll show you my favorite spots in the park for landscapes. I have a good feel for where the elk, moose and pronghorn are hanging out. We may even throw in a day of fly fishing or a float on the snake river. I hope you will consider joining me.
