Yellowstone-Teton Autumn Photography Workshop

To see examples from past trips please watch the slide show and visit the gallery   Teton Autumn Photography Workshop

Sept 22 - 28 2019

"The main difference in this workshop is that we will work harder and explore techniques more in depth to develop a unique style. We will talk more about creating a mood or a sense of awe in your photos. We will do more low light, possibly some Milky Way photography and go beyond just getting the right composition and exposure. I am trying to limit the membership to people who want more than just another pretty photo." Jess Lee

Autumn is an incredibly special time in Yellowstone, Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National park. It is the perfect time for the explosion of autumn color. The aspens will be turning, the air crisp and there usually is fresh snow on the mountains. The Teton's are one of the worlds most dramatic mountain ranges and we will show you the best locations and how to capture images of the stunning land called Jackson Hole. In Yellowstone the brisk autumn mornings will bring a rush of activity by the abundant wildlife and a sense of mystery brought by the steam of the geyser basins. Here we will take time to learn new techniques to improve your photography. 

There will be a maximum  of 6 students. Instruction will be by Jess Lee professional photographer whose work has appeared in hundreds of publication worldwide. Including covers on National Geographic Magazine, National Wildlife, Defenders of Wildlife to drop a few names. Jess will be assisted by Jeff Nichols so there will be a ratio of 3 students per instructor.  We take a hands on approach and have you learn in the field while photographing great subjects. We will be there to instruct as you work on composition, proper exposure for unique lighting situations, and the use of depth of field to make creative decisions when you create a image. We will show you how to capture images in the camera with good technique which ultimately results in less time spent in the computer post processing. Of course we all want to be able to create a unique vision and show in our work the feeling we had in the moment of capture. This is best done with the mastery of various image processing programs. While we will not have the vast amount of time it takes to be proficient at all phases of image processing we will have time to explore the possibilities of using Lightroom, Photoshop and Luminosity Masking during image review sessions.

After picking you up in Idaho Falls we will proceed to West Yellowstone and check in to our hotel. During our drive we will discuss our plans, current conditions and hear your expectations for the workshop. West Yellowstone is the most scenic entrance and provides great autumn photo opportunities as we drive along the beautiful Madison River toward our morning adventures.

On the afternoon of day 3 we will be photographing our way to one of the most scenic mountain ranges in the world and home of Grand Teton National Park.  During the rest of this adventure we will be surrounded by the land that is microcosm of today's west.  From the glitter of the Jackson Town Square to the early morning call of a lone wolf in the mist, Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons are a place that will thrill your spirit and can capture your soul. From the first light touching the majestic Teton range to the chance to photograph the milky way rising in the south west you will be able to capture in your images, sights and scenes many photographers will never experience. Jackson Hole is much more than a pretty mountain range. The area abounds with wildlife;  Wolves, Grizzlies, Moose, Elk, Bighorn Sheep, Pronghorn are all here for use to find and photograph with the Teton range and the Snake river as a backdrop. There is more here than we can photograph in a few days but enough to saturate your imagination with the possibilities.
