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.

Michigan Wildflowers at Pictured Rocks with Dave Stimac

During this 6-day workshop we will explore two beautiful and entirely different locations with a large diversity of photographic opportunities. Macro subjects abound in these places at this time of year as well as the wider shots that illustrate the beauty of spring in the north woods. We’ll concentrate on making well composed portraits of plants and landscapes of the forests, rivers and shorelines. Other subjects may include butterflies, amphibians and other small creatures. I’ve spent a lot of time searching for and photographing the special plants and landscapes of this region and look forward to sharing my experience with enthusiastic photographers and naturalists. A limit of 6 students means that I can give everyone the attention that they deserve and we can minimize our impact in sensitive areas.

Grand Teton National Park with Robin Elledge

Creativity lives far beyond cameras, lenses, software, and lighting. The tools are NOT what makes the photographer. What does? A deep connection to your own creative voice. A connection to your signature style. To your own unique expression of beauty and identity. To the sacred union between you and your Divine gifts as an artist.

This is 6-days that will not only change who you are as a photographer, but who you are as a person. Every one of our workshops is multi-dimensional and delivered with the intention of creating change for our participants. We will teach you to think outside your normal box, challenge you to discover your own personal path to greatness and set the stage for you to find extraordinary images in ordinary places.
