Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull

I'm excited about adding this free safari to my 2023 schedule.  For those who do the Yellowstone/Teton Spring Wildlife Safari, this safari is free.  In 2021 during the holiday break I spent a day shooting Clark's Grebes, with chicks riding their backs, as the hunted for fish in the waterways adjacent to the refuge road.  Morning and late afternoon were very busy, and during breaks I photographed the hundreds of Forster's Terns that were taking bugs off the surface of the waterways on the east side of the refuge. 

Overall, it made for a very rewarding day of photography, as the photos illustrate.  I also shot many other birds, terns, avocets, as well as a raccoon and a striped skunk.

If you are participating in the Yellowstone/Teton Spring Safari, just let me know that you would like to participate in this one day event, and you are in.  There is a nearby hotel and good cafe in Brigham City to eat at.  Also, if you are looking for other photography locations after the spring Yellowstone Safari, then Antelope Island State Park is not far away. 

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/walk along at no charge, but you must have your own vehicle to travel in.  Link 
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. 
Difficulty Level Dates

Easy  -  mostly just driving. Tuesday, June 6  $250 (or FREE)
I began shooting at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in 1993, Antelope Island State Park a few years after that, and Farmington Bay WMA around 2007.  Along with Salt Creek WMA a few miles farther north, these refuges have always been excellent locations to photograph wildlife around the Great Salt Lake. This safari is 1 day long.  Probably the biggest negative to shooting at Bear River are the hordes of gnats and mosquitoes that live here.  I'm sure the term "a cloud of bugs" began here, where sometimes the form dark columns rising above the bushes along both sides of the road.  Put on some repellant and suck it up, when you leave you can roll the windows down and draw them out of the vehicle.
