Tuesday, January 30 (D)
You’ll start this wildlife photography adventure with a flight to Bozeman, Montana, where you’ll be met at the airport and transferred by shuttle to the town of West Yellowstone, a scenic and beautiful three hour drive through the Gallatin Canyon. Note: Please arrive in Bozeman before 1:30pm on this day or arrive one day earlier; we can make hotel arrangements in Bozeman for you if needed. Be on the lookout for bighorn sheep, wolves, and moose which are sometimes seen along this drive. After we check into our hotel, a wine and cheese gathering will follow. Daniel will show some of his work and go over tips and suggestions for shooting in Yellowstone. A group welcome dinner to follow.
Wednesday, January 31 – Saturday, February 3 (4B, 4L, 1D)
We’ll spend full days in Yellowstone National Park traveling in guided luxury privately-chartered snow coaches. Each day we’ll travel to different locations in the park including Fire Hole, Fountain Flats, Norris Geyser, Old Faithful, Midway and Lower Geyser basins, Biscuit Basin and Obsidian Cliffs. We’ll depart daily at around 7:30am and stay out until 6:00-6:30pm for optimum light. Each guest will have two seats on the snow coach for camera gear and comfort during traveling. All photography will be done outside the snow coach from the road or on designated walking trails.
Custom box lunches, snacks, and hot beverages are included daily while touring.
Evenings are free to explore the town of West Yellowstone. Visit the Yellowstone IMAX theater or take advantage of time to review your portfolio with Dan. We prefer to give you the option to enjoy time to explore the town on your own, organize photos from your daily shoots, or simply rest. The days are long in the field with a lot of fresh air; it’s good to have some personal downtime and enjoy your trip—this is your vacation! Daniel will have one evening class (optional) to discuss image workflow along with a Q&A session.
Our last evening will include a casual farewell gathering over beverages, appetizers, and pizza. Daniel will present some of his recent work. The evening is open to you to showcase your own favorite images to the group from the trip.
Sunday, February 4 (B)
Return to Bozeman early morning by shuttle and arrive at/before 11:00am. Please schedule your return flight no earlier than noon.
