Wildlife Photography is about behavior and interaction: Yellowstone Delivers Both

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull
From mid-May through mid-June Yellowstone is flooded with baby animals of every type: fox and badger kits, coyote pups, elk and bison calves, grizzly and black bear cubs, sandhill crane colts, mule deer and pronghorn fawns.  With a carpet of nutritious greens covering the mountains and valleys, punctuated by mule's ears and fireweed wildflowers, the photographic encounters pile-up each day.  The flood of critters, especially the Uinta ground squirrels, provide food for the many predators while elk calves are hunted by wolves and bears.  Photographing the life cycle of these animals is spectacular, and every day we encounter some new wildlife adventures. For those not traveling with me, we meet in Gardiner, Montana just outside the northwest entrance to Yellowstone. I expect every type of weather during these safari days: rain storms, wind, clouds, and severe clear, blue sky days. While temperatures vary, typically the days warm into the 60's, maybe even the low 70'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 info.  Link 

I am a licensed guide in Yellowstone.
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.  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 : Mostly EASY

The days are long, with sunrise about 5:40am each morning.  Expect to be out chasing encounters for about 11-12 hours each day.  Carrying some snacks to tie you over between meals is always a good idea.  I will have cases of water available to everyone.
