YELLOWSTONE IN WINTER - MONTANA

West Yellowstone - MONTANA / Workshop

Experience Yellowstone National Park in a completely different light. Geysers, geological mysteries and the wildlife of Yellowstone are waiting to be photographed in this winter wonderland. Explore the heart of Yellowstone on a snow coach or bomber and see what you've been missing.



NEW THIS YEAR - 3 Days in the PARK

The focus of this workshop will be winter landscapes and how to compose and expose them correctly. Although, we will be looking for Bison, Fox, Coyotes, Wolves and especially our friends the Bobcats throughout the workshop. So bring a big lens or rent one from our store here in West Yellowstone.





Immerse yourself into the landscapes of Yellowstone National Park in the magical time of the winter months. The experience alone is worth the journey.



The massive strength and endurance of the American Bison is apparent in his stride along with his ever watchful eyes.

Wonder. The only way to describe what you will encounter in Yellowstone in winter. Climb aboard as you are carried into the heart of the park to photograph the unique vistas and wildlife that populate America's first national park. Both pristine and rugged at the same time - you'll see Yellowstone unlike you've ever seen it before.
