The Annual September trip to Grand Teton delivered the colors of fall for dramatic landscapes, and offered some ” moments of a lifetime” wildlife encounters.
The 2020 Grand Teton Landscape Photography Workshop provided stunning fall landscapes and more than a few awe-inspiring wildlife encounters. The goal of this group meet up, held each year is to reward “alumni” of PhotoMastersWorkshops with a photographic adventure with an emphasis on camaraderie , relaxation, and fun. The week-long vacation is open to everyone who has taken a prior workshop. There is no instructor fee. We travel at our own expense and share our photographic knowledge as peers.
Here are some of the highlights:
We began our trip with sunrise landscape photography at Oxbow Bend and Cattleman’s Ranch Crossing. A big “thank you” to Linda Bostic who enthusiastically documented our trip!
We followed the sound of bellowing Elk to Willow Flats and were rewarded with photos of a large Buck and his harem of seven cows.
We spent an afternoon at the Mormon Barns (This photo courtesy of Keddy Bostic) and enjoyed capturing a few lone Bison grazing within 100 yards of Antelope Flats Road.

We took landscape panoramas from Oxbow Bend…
Phelps Lake Overlook…
And, Cattleman’s Crossing.
We took some easy Alpine hikes and captured some long exposures of streams and brooks.
One morning, we had the good luck to run into world renown conservation photographer, Thomas Mangelsen. He had just photographed Grizzly Bear 399 crossing the Snake River at Jackson Dam. We missed seeing Grizzly Bear 399 this trip, but we did get to photograph a large adult male Black Bear, feeding on the huckleberries beside Moose-Wilson Road.
We photographed this Black Bear with a 600 mm lens from our car.
A stop at Blacktail Marsh included a session staring a mother moose and her calf .
