2015 Autumn-Grand Teton Photography Workshop

September 24-26, 2015 | 2 day in-field workshop | $900 | Jackson, WY

This is my favorite time of the year! The photographic possibilities are endless. The animals are very active during this time. The bears are stocking up on the last berries that still cling to the Serviceberry and Hawthorne bushes. The elk are in rut, and the bulls are gathering their harems for breeding--which means lots of bugling and sparring bulls. The Great Gray Owl is also very active at this time. The skies are a crisp blue, the underbrush crimson and the Aspen and Cottonwood trees are bright yellow. If you've never been to Grand Teton/Yellowstone at this time of year, you should come out this fall. It will be an incredible experience! Immediately following this workshop, we will head north to Yellowstone for 2 more days of photography. The information is below this workshop description.
