Grand Tetons Fall with Tom Mace

Fall in the Grand Teton National Park is a gift to any photographer attempting to capture nature at its finest. The colors of the park dramatically change establishing astonishing landscape settings with the dominating Tetons as a backdrop. Bears are fattening up and actively feeding in the lower elevations while Elk and Moose fiercely compete for mates as the Rut swings into high gear. As the bugling of the Elk warn all that winter is coming, you can’t help but slow down and appreciate the opportunity to capture this magical time of year with your camera. That is where Tripod Travelers steps in. We plan several trips to the Grand Tetons each year during Spring, Summer, and Fall as the park offers many unique perspectives as the seasons change. Our Fall Trips focus on the Rut, Bears, Moose, and Elk. We get our clients in safe positions to learn, appreciate, and capture these incredible animals as they prepare for winter. Whether Bears digging up Tubers, Elk beginning their annual migration to the Elk reserve or Moose competing in a marsh for their companion; we do our research and leverage our experience to teach our clients how to locate and photograph these animals as they all focus on the next 6 months of surviving the harsh cold that lies ahead. The landscape is also quickly transforming with Fall colors making for incredible landscape opportunities. Based on the time of year, we know the specific locations animals frequent throughout the park and we get you safely in position to seize the opportunity of photographing nature at its finest. Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.

This is an all inclusive workshop. All workshops, ground transportation, hotels, meals, fees, and the little things are included in the price.

Arches and Canyonlands with Tom Mace

Join us as we make our desert swing into two photographer playgrounds that have extreme opportunities to capture some of the most unique landscapes in the world. Arches National Park, nestled just 5 miles north of Moab, is the largest collection of sandstone arches in the world. 65 million years in the making, these sandstone formations have risen and eroded to create alien like landscapes throughout the park. With over 2000 arches and breathtaking rock formations, photographers can spend weeks attempting to capture the essence of this park through their lens. Having navigated this park several times, we have established an agenda that will help our photographers capture all the beauty this park has to offer. Canyonlands National Park, 30 miles southwest of Moab, offers some of the best landscapes to capture canyon mazes and sandstone pillars. From Island in the Sky to the Needles area, we will spend 2 days exploring and photographing this unbelievable landscape. This trip will also include night photography, capturing the Milky Way against the amazing foregrounds. Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.

This workshop is all inclusive, All ground transportation, lodging, meals, park fees, and the little things are included in the pricing.
