The Grand Teton and Yellowstone Spring Workshop was timed in early May for optimum photography conditions in these popular parks during a rare moment when they are virtually devoid of visitors. Large herds of Elk and Bison, migrating north from the National Elk Refuge provided a unique opportunity to image these icons of the American West in front of a dramatic background of snow swept mountain peaks.
Grizzly Bears foraging for roots showed themselves by the roadside—as very few tourists visit the parks this early in the year.
Moose roamed fearlessly in the lowlands. Rivers ,creeks and waterfalls swollen with cascading ice melt made perfect subjects for slow-shutter imaging.
Crisp and clear dark skies lustrous with star fields and the rising Milky Way offered perfect conditions for night sky captures. Each starry night photography session then became “alpen glow” sunrises.
The invigorating mornings with temps in the 20’s imbued the magma generated geysers and pools of Yellowstone come alive with added steam and visual contrast.
All 2021 workshop participants will receive priority in reserving their places for the 2022 Teton/Yellowstone Workshop. The 2021 workshop will include four days of instruction, and three “free days” of fun and unstructured adventure. Tuition is $1,600 per student.
