    Fall Wildlife Photography
    Sept 10-15, 2015 : Fall is a gorgeous time of the year for photography - add in some amazing animals and you've got the perfect setting for a photography workshop. I happen to have just such an event coming up this fall!

    Workshop Overview

    Fall in the Mountains with beautiful animals
    8 Species of Wildlife in a controlled setting
    Classroom: Image Critiques, Digital Workflow and more
    Personal Attention from Instructor

    NANPA members save $200 on this workshop!!!

    About the Workshop

    One of the reasons that I love about the Fall Wildlife Photography Workshop is that at this time of the year the colors are great, but more importantly the animals look their best. Theyve grown their fur coats and its always more luxurious than the summer counterpart. The other things is that the spring babies will be adolescents by now. They are far more curious and active than during the baby workshop in the summer. They still have that juvenile cuteness though!

    It is certainly possible for a dusting or more of snow - so that might be a great bonus!

    Included in the Workshop

    The fee includes 3 days of photography instruction with classroom session critiquing your images and how to help on photographing wildlife. We will also allocate a few hours to help you with your digital workflow and really most any topics that you'd like covered. I keep the classroom size small, usually less than 10 clients and I try to tailor the classes to your specific needs.

You'll enjoy everything from macro to wide angle photography on this trip.

We have timed our visit to the Cape during shoulder season, which comes after the summer crowds and before the infamous cold Nor'easter storms. For four days we will traverse the peninsula photographing the sand beaches of the National Seashore, quaint fishing and sailing harbors, historic lighthouses and buildings, and eclectic towns such as Provincetown and Chatham. And, if our timing is spot on with mother nature, we'll even get to photograph the cranberry bogs bursting in color. During this workshop you'll have countless opportunities to make great images of a very unique part of this country.

    Grand Teton & Yellowstone Autumn Combo
    September 25-Oct 3,  2015 : Autumn is spectacular in the two classic nature photography destinations in Northwest Wyoming, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.  Its difficult to decide on which one to visit so for this photo tour Ive included both.  We spend 4 days in each park.  We first visit Grand Teton National Park.  Ive timed the trip to try to hit the peak of the fall colors.  Capturing classic landscape images with golden aspens and rugged mountains can be expected.  The wildlife in the Tetons is also very active and visible in the fall.  Moose, elk, pronghorn and bison are all rutting making for some exciting photo opportunities.  Bears are feeding non-stop putting on fat reserves to make it through the upcoming winter.  Its possible to see both black and grizzly bears.

    Yellowstone is our 2nd destination.  The fall elk rut in the park is famous and well be sure to capture some great images of the bugling bulls in the frosty meadows.  Bears and wolves are very active as well and may provide us with some memorable photo shoots.  The crisp autumn mornings in Yellowstone transform the unique thermal areas of the park into a mystical realm of mist and steam and ethereal light.  You can't go wrong photographing either of these world class photo destinations so photographing  them both in one trip is a great option.  Authorized photo tour guide D. Robert Franz will lead this tour.
