When I first started my career in
wildlife photography I shot primarily in Yellowstone and the Grand
Tetons in autumn - this was my number one safari. The elk
rutting season echoes through the pine forests and across the
meadows as the big bulls compete with each other - bugling and
fighting - to gain success in gathering harems of cows.
There are so many amazing subjects in the world's first national
park. Over the 36 years I've shot in the park I've been
privileged to have seen it all - and each year wildlife photography
in the park has improved.
With fall colors blazing in the Tetons we will also shoot many of
its iconic landmarks, such as - The Oxbow, Mormon Row Barns,
Schwabacher's Landing ponds, Moose-Wilson Road, etc. I
am an authorized and licensed Yellowstone National Park Tour Guide.
Because the Colorado Fall Landscape Safari begins two days after
this safari ends, there is a special discount if you do both
safaris, contact me if you would like more information on the
discount, it is substantial. Also, you can drive out with me
from California for the Yellowstone Safari, but would need to fly
home from Salt Lake City if you aren't doing the Colorado Safari as
If you don't travel with me, then we meet in Gardiner, Montana just north of Mammoth Hot Springs and
Yellowstone, on Sunday
night. On Thursday, September 22 we will
travel down to the Jackson Hole Valley for the Grand Teton part of the safari,
finishing on the 25th. These are 7 very full
days of wildlife and landscape shooting at two of North America's
premier photography locations.
