Location: Jackson, Wyoming
Dates: June 9-13, 2025 – SOLD OUT
Details: One of our favorite times to visit Grand Teton National Park is in June. The mountains are still shrouded in snow and the blue lupines and yellow balsamroot blanket the plains. The busy summer season hasn’t begun, and early morning photo shoots are more serene.
In addition to photographing stunning landscapes, we will look for bison, moose, pronghorn and bear in the park. We will celebrate being in cowboy country by visiting the rodeo on Saturday night to photograph both cowboys, horses and spectators. We will teach creative techniques to capture the splendor of Grand Teton NP. We’ll discuss long exposure landscapes, macro techniques and focus stacking, intimate wildlife photography and creative lighting in the field. We will have midday image reviews and editing sessions during the workshop as well.

- Wildlife and Landscape Photography techniques
