ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Join me in one of my favorite parks of all time, Yellowstone!  My first of many publications for National Geographic came from this park almost 15 years ago and it keeps my coming back for more and more! You will spend 5 days and 4 nights in America's first National Park, Yellowstone, followed by 2 incredible nights in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is home to the largest collections of geysers.  We will have the opportunity to capture many of the iconic features in the park including Old Faithful, Yellowstone Falls, Mammoth Hot springs, tons of wildlife, and also numerous thermal features. In the field, we will have in depth discussions on how to create compelling compositions during the day, under the milky way, and during meteor showers. Don't worry we will have plenty of daytime shooting in this workshop as well. This workshop will have both morning, evening, and night sky shoots spread out, so we do not burn ourselves out. There will be time to relax, unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
