Driving out of Jackson Wyoming towards the park is quite the experience when you see for the first time the majestic peaks of the Tetons rise out of the prairie like skyscrapers capped in snow. Over this workshop we will visit many, many amazing places for landscape photography including some very iconic ones made famous by Ansel Adams himself. However, you know me and I'll be taking you to locations that most other photographers don't hit and offer up some amazingly unique vistas.
At this time of the year the Cottonwoods and Aspens are putting on a show with fiery autumn colors, the wildlife is active during the rut and there is the potential of early season snow in the mountains and fog along the Snake River Valley making this one of the premier locals for dramatic autumn landscape photography.
