This is your opportunity to capture images of the magnificent landscapes and incredible wildlife that can only be experienced in Yellowstone during the winter. Small groups of a maximum of four people per experienced instructor insure that you receive personal attention suited to your skill level. The workshop will be led by nature and wildlife photographers, Patricia Worley and Larry Lyons.
This high-end workshop at extremely reasonable rates provides you with full transportation services in warm SUVs and private snow coaches to and from the airport in Bozeman and throughout your entire trip. Hotel accommodations in Gardiner, Montana at the north entrance of Yellowstone and at the Snow Lodge, home of Old Faithful are also included. You will receive personal instruction and guidance throughout the park from sunup to sundown! Pat and Larry are part of an elite few who are certified guides for Yellowstone National Park.
7 - Day Intinerary
Day 1 - Everyone makes their own arrangements to fly into Bozeman, Montana by 2 PM. We will leave in two SUVs for the hotel stopping along the way as we travel to Gardiner, Montana at northern entrance of Yellowstone. Will check into the hotel in Gardiner, have lunch and then proceed to travel into the park for the afternoon.
Days 2, 3 and 4- Plan to rise early for sunrise and to cruise the ever changing Lamar Valley and Mammoth Springs for wildlife and fantastical landscapes each day. We will travel inside and outside of the park looking for coyotes, bison, elk, fox, bald eagles, moose and the ever elusive wolf. The lighting and the wildlife are never the same two days in a row. Each day will be a new adventure full of excitement, photographic instruction and once in a lifetime experiences. We will break for meals and experience the eerie sensation of Mammoth Springs at night.
Day 5 - Leave from Mammoth Springs to the Old Faithful Snow Lodge in a private snow coach dedicated to our small group. We will spend the day stopping for wildlife and the beautiful landscapes of Hayden Valley and Yellowstone Canyon. We will finish our day exploring the Old Faithful area and capturing the unique experience of the stars and steam at night. We will spend the night in the comfortable western cabins and have dinner in the restaurant in the main lodge.
