When I first started my career in wildlife
photography I shot primarily in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons in
autumn - this was my primary 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.
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 a licensed guide in Yellowstone.
not traveling with me, we meet in Gardiner, Montana just
outside Yellowstone. I expect every type of weather during these safari days:
snow and rain storms, wind, clouds, and severe clear, blue sky days.
Typically the days warm into the
50's or low 60's.
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, 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
I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography
career shooting in the American West. The first 24
years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. I lead safaris to
the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife
activity periods. What a rush it has been.
