Grand Teton National Park is home to an incredible variety of wildlife, and this tour will concentrate on photographing these extraordinary animals in their natural habitats.

Occasional encounters that require a bit more luck:
Our process helps reduce a lot of non-productive driving and greatly increases your chances of locating wildlife.
The months of May and June, as well as the fall months, are ideal for wildlife tours as the park is less crowded and the animals are more active in the cooler temperatures. The fall months bring bugling elk to the park and is a highlight of the year.
July and August are also excellent and the winter months offer easier viewing as the animals are less mobile and silhouetted against the snow. To bring our subjects closer, my tours also include a spotting scope and a pair of binoculars for your use.

The itinerary will remain open and dynamic; we go where the animals are! Depending on your schedule, these tours begin at either dawn or dusk which are the hours that wildlife are the most active. These hours also provide the best possible shooting light.
A full day tour begins with an early morning pickup, proceeding into Grand Teton National Park. While I do have some “ace in the hole” locations that we’ll visit , we may go directly to a recent day’s sighting for quick success.
The full day tours offer more time for exploration, and perhaps a few landscape shots to round out your portfolio.
