World famous Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are some of the most exciting places in the world to photograph landscapes and wildlife. This is a must see on any nature photographer's and wildlife lover's list. Join us as we explore this park and the surrounding areas.

The Greater Yellowstone ecosystem is a mountainous region bisected by the continental divide. Several peaks like Grand Teton are over 13,000 feet. Powerful geological forces created this landscape.

Fall is a great time to visit as the huge summer crowds and traffic jams are gone. Wildlife is more abundant. It is the time of year when many other professional photographers and videographers visit the park annually.

Yellowstone has one the great concentration of thermal activity. It is home to the famous Old Faithful. It also has beautiful rivers, geysers, springs, mudpots, waterfalls, canyons, ponds, and mountains. Vibrant leaves of aspen and cottonwood show off their fall color. We will visit a gorge carved by time and water that some people think rivals the Grand Canyon.

These two parks are the premiere wildlife viewing areas in the US. Creatures great and small await us at almost every corner. We will be visiting the parks during the rut for elk, moose, and pronghorn. This is a great time to photograph great wildlife behavior like courtship, territorial displays, and sparing. The elk will bugle, spar, and herd cows this time of year. Other species that are commonly photographed are moose, bison, big horned sheep, mule deer, coyotes, wolves, and bears. The mammals will have their prime winter fur since they are getting ready for the harsh winter ahead. Bird sightings can be very exciting as we will look for trumpeter swans and great grey owls or whatever else we discover.

Our itinerary will be planned around recent wildlife activity, lighting, and weather conditions. We need to take advantage of the unique opportunities. Our goal is to see the beauty of the parks. Come and enjoy the autumn tranquility of this great ecosystem.

John Slonina has been leading photo tours and workshops for decades at both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and the surrounding areas. He knows the back roads to find the elusive wildlife and landscapes. He has been studying and photographing wildlife for years.

Group Size:

Our group size is limited to six people which is substantially smaller than other tour companies. This will maximize learning and allow us to get closer to wildlife.

This offers several advantages.

Maximize Learning

Personalized one on one attention, critiques, and photography advice. Both in the field and in the classroom. I want to make sure you get the best shots while we are on location.

Better Access

We get much better access to remote areas than bus tours, day tours and car pools. There are several incredible places which only have room for one or two cars.

We will be traveling in one vehicle designed for wildlife viewing. We can access more remote areas and respond quicker to where wildlife has been spotted.

Our smaller groups allow a closer approach to wildlife. Larger groups makes animals more nervous. 

Fitness Level:
This trip will involve some short flat walks. None of the hikes are long. Most of them are within sight of my tour van, so you do not have to be in great shape for this tour.

The hotels are included in this tour (7 nights stay). Single Occupancy
