Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

Glacier National Park is an amazing place.  From vast landscapes and lakes, to wildflowers and huckleberries, to bears and birds - Glacier is an important destination for any landscape/wildlife photographer who shoots in the American West.  This safari comes in September to take advantage of autumn colors and foliage, and high wildlife activity as animals prepare for winter.  We spend each day in a different area of the park, and each morning at a peak spot in that area.  We shoot the east and west sides of Logan Pass, Many Glacier, and the Polebridge Road into northwestern Glacier and Kintla and Bowman Lakes.  The photography generally runs about 60% percent landscapes and 40% wildlife - but that can change minute by minute. This safari is limited to 3 photographers riding with me on the safari. Parking can be extremely difficult so we keep the vehicles to just my truck in the park.

We meet in Montana outside the west entrance to Glacier, on Sunday night, September 17. While pleasant during the day, the weather can change quickly - with mornings being quite cold and snow possible anytime - so layered clothing and shooting gloves, boots, a hat - are a must to stay comfortable.

The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, or credit card, and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full payment is due.  Check the main safari page for other information.  Spouses can ride along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle.  Link 

This safari is 5 days long.

I've spent my 38-year wildlife photography career shooting in the American West.  The first 23 years shooting out of Utah, the past 15 years out of California.  With 1500 published photo credits, dozens of magazine covers and article, and a lifetime wandering the roads of the west, the photo safaris that I lead are all to the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife activity periods.  What a rush it has been.
Difficulty Level Dates

Moderate  -  Some walking, some hiking. Monday, September 18-22    $1750
This safari is limited to 3 (in my Super Crew Cab 4x4 F-150) because of the difficulty in parking and driving Going-to-the-Sun Road.  It is very narrow with very few spots to park, except at Logan Pass - so one vehicle allows us to stay together. Also, the back roads north of Polebridge going to Bowman and Kintla Lakes are very dusty and no one wants to be the second vehicle. I will have hotel reservations for the participants, just let me know if you want a single room, or to split a room.  There are some good restaurants in both Kalispell and Columbia Falls, west of the park.  While it doesn't normally snow, it is northern Montana so pack accordingly. Their are no single supplement fees.
Bonus Safari Discount Participants - maximum of 3 photographers.
