Winter Photography Tours

Quiet. With far less traffic and the dampening effect of 6 feet of standing snow on the landscape, your winter photography tour offers a completely different perspective on the park.

Wildlife are actually easier to spot this time of year. Silhouetted against the snow and being less mobile, the winter months offer some memorable wildlife photography and viewing opportunities.

When your legs are tired from the skiing, this tour makes for an incredible recovery day!

The first blush of dawn on the snow-draped Tetons is not something you’ll ever forget.

Soft purplish light almost seems to emanate from within the snow when you catch it right.

And since the sun stays so low on the horizon this time of year, you get extended “magic hours” that will keep your camera’s shutter whirring.

Winter wildlife is also abundant, so after catching sunrise we set out in search of wildlife.

Frequent winter wildlife sightings:

  • Moose
  • Bighorn Sheep
  • Bison
  • Coyotes
  • Fox
  • Elk
  • Swans and waterfowl
  • Bald eagles

Your tour will be private, so you’ll be able to spend as much time with the animals as you like in each location.

Great Winter Pics

Brad knew the right alternate spot to shoot the sunrise when the Tetons were shrouded in clouds. He was extremely helpful in shooting the best landscapes and finding wildlife.

Saw coyotes, moose, bighorn sheep and eagles all close enough to shoot with a 300 mm lens. I also learned a lot about landscape composition, shooting wildlife, etc. Highly recommend to any enthusiast.
