Dates October 6th to 10th, 5 days photo workshop
This workshop is targeted towards teaching the art of outdoor photography and we will make every effort to make sure we put you in the best situation at the perfect time to go home with amazing landscape and wildlife photographs that this beautiful region has to offer. Beyond the landscape photography, Grand Tetons National Park is also a hot spot for wildlife viewing and photography. It is very likely that we will have opportunities to see and photograph bisons, moose, pronghorn, bear, elk, birds and other smaller mammals.
