Grand Teton and Yellowstone Winter Photo Expedition

Our Grand Teton and Yellowstone winter expedition provides an ample opportunity for a detailed exploration of both Grand Teton and Yellowstone with two days in the Tetons, two private snowcoaches into Yellowstone’s interior and four days of photography workshop along Yellowstone’s Northern Range. 

We will photograph elk, bighorn sheep, bison, moose, eagles, coyotes, foxes, landscapes and wolves. We will get to almost every accessible area of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. 

This photo tour is designed for people who want a richer experience in the Tetons and Yellowstone, who want ample time to learn every winter photography technique from a working professional. We have Lightroom instruction and critique every night. You will leave this workshop thoroughly versed in how to photograph any subject in winter.
