Grand Teton National Park Fall Workshop 2

Grand Teton National Park is a haven for photographers, offering stunning scenery in every direction. From sunrise to sunset, the landscape resembles a painting with its vibrant colors. It's no surprise that photographers from all over the world flock to this valley, which boasts the largest concentration of wildlife in the Lower 48. Each season brings its own unique charm to this magical place. In the spring, the valley is adorned with a plethora of wildflowers and we get to witness the birth of fawns and calves from the ungulate species. As summer arrives, we see these young animals grow and the snow slowly melts away from the towering peaks. The autumn season transforms the valley into a golden wonderland as the leaves of the aspen trees change color. Additionally, this is the time when ungulate species enter their mating season and bears prepare for winter by building up their fat reserves. Finally, winter blankets both the peaks and the valley in a dazzling white, providing visitors with an awe-inspiring view.

Day 1 (Travel Day)(D)
Plan to arrive in Jackson, Wyoming, for an orientation meeting and dinner. Please meet in the hotel lobby. We’ll go over camera gear and itinerary.

Day 2 (B,L,D)
We’ll get started early on our first morning, setting off pre-dawn to set up for an iconic sunrise location. Once the sun has fully risen and we’re satisfied with our work, we’ll head for town for a nutritious breakfast before setting our sights on wildlife. If you’re with us in spring, we’ll be at the Park during calving season, so wildlife like elk, bison, and pronghorn, among others, should be quite active. If you are with us in Autumn, the local wildlife will be beginning their winter preparations, and while we cannot guarantee sightings, we’ll nearly, almost guarantee wildlife sightings on this tour.

This evening we will setup at a famous spot for some dramatic backlighting as the sun sets behind the striking Teton Range. After dark we’ll head out “on the town” for a fantastic dinner in Jackson Hole.

Day 3 (B,L,D)
Is there anything more serene than a mountain landscape reflected in still, glassy water? This is precisely the scene we’ll be expecting at Schwabacher’s Landing, our sunrise location for this day.

After shooting our morning scene, we’ll of course be on the lookout for potential grizzly bear sightings as we cruise through the Park. Grand Teton has always been noted for roadside wildlife sightings, so we’ll be able to “hunt” for wildlife from our vehicle.

We’ll break for a bit following a delicious and filling lunch before gearing up for yet another sunset that is sure to please. En route we’ll look for moose, Bald eagle, fox, Bighorn sheep, and any other critter who might show up along the way. Dinner back in Jackson will fill our bellies prior to a nice night of rest.

Day 4 (B,L,D)
One of the finest sunrise scenes in the park will be our destination for our morning shoot today. Here, at Oxbow Bend, as the Snake River flows east from Jackson Lake it leaves behind a perfect view (and reflection) of 12,610-foot Mount Moran. Idyllic and iconic, this location will be as rewarding as any. Expect fall colors to add to this image on the autumn tour.

We’ll take a midday break in order to rest and perhaps go over our images prior to heading back to the park in search of more wildlife, and of course another spectacular Teton sunset before dinner.

Day 5 (B)
We'll capture another great sunrise and one of the many fantastic locations in the park. After sunrise, we'll have a final group breakfast/brunch and conclude our amazing journey.

Please note that the exact sequence of the itineraries on all photography trips will be based on weather and lighting conditions. The goal on these trips is to make sure we are at the right place at the right time for the perfect light on our subjects. Also, itineraries can change for a variety of other circumstances including floods, forest fires, national park closures, road closures, and more. Due to the nature of wildlife and landscape photography, we do not guarantee any specific sightings or specific compositions.
