Experience the magic of Yellowstone National Park in the quiet of winter with acclaimed National Geographic photographer, Barrett Hedges.

 

Winter Wonderland in Yellowstone National Park

 

Yellowstone National Park is the best place to photograph wildlife in the winter in North America!  With its relatively easy access, and such a diversity of wildlife, winter in Yellowstone is a must for any wildlife photographer!  In Yellowstone’s unique winter environment, bison wander across vast snow-covered fields and drink in streams sparking with ice crystals, fox jump head first into the snow for hidden rodents, wolves wander the valleys and howl from the ridges, bobcats hunt along the edges of rivers; and elk, river otter, big horn sheep, moose, eagles, snowshoe hare and coyote all call Yellowstone home in the winter, a wildlife photographer’s dream!  Not only will we see incredible wildlife, but also the frozen landscape makes for dramatic wintry scenes.  Hoar frost will cover the trees and glisten in the morning light, steam rises thickly from the hot springs, geysers and fumaroles, and snow will cover the entire landscape.  Come experience this incredible opportunity with us as we discover and unveil the magic of Yellowstone in the winter together!!

The best part about winter in Yellowstone is that you just never know what you will encounter.  One day it might be a bobcat along a river, the next day a pack of wolves in the valley, or the temperature might be really cold and we will find a frosty bison.  One of the best parts of the winter in Yellowstone is the diversity.  We will have plans on where we want to go each day, but those plans can easily change depending on what we discover.  There is so much to see, which is why we have planned for a full week in the park.

There are numerous photographic techniques used in the winter, and we will discuss those as we go along.  This isn’t just a tour to show you wildlife, this is a workshop, and photographic instruction and guidance by Barrett will be available at all times to insure you are able to make the most of your time in the park. During downtimes, and most of the time we will be out in the field shooting, we will focus on camera settings, photo sharing, and constructive critique designed to help you master the techniques necessary to bring home great images.  Barrett is not a great photo editor, but his skills are capturing the image correctly the first time, and that is what he is going to help you accomplish too!

Why come with me??

         Barrett has tour guided in the park two full summers, and driven a photo tour snow coach one winter.  On his own he has photographed in Yellowstone every winter, spring, and fall since 2011, and has spent days searching for and finding the best places where wildlife hang out in the winter.  He is a National Geographic Creative photographer and his experience with wildlife is unmatched!  Come with him to learn different ways to shoot a scene from a top end wildlife photographer, who is highly experienced in the Yellowstone area.  

 

This is a winter trip you will never forget, and you will walk away with more photographic knowledge and great shots!!  A full list of gear recommendations, including clothing, will be provided once you sign up, and we will send a more detailed itinerary.  We look forward to leading you this winter!
