ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

You will spend 5 days and 4 nights in America's first National Park, Yellowstone. Established in 1872, this 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 d numerous thermal feature's. In the field, we will  have in depth discussions on how to create compelling compositions during the day, under the milky way, and during the Perseid Meteor Shower. If we are really lucky, maybe we catch some northern lights as well.
