2023 Grand Teton National Park Roadside Adventure & Tour | Yellowstone National Park Workshop
Driving out of Jackson Hole Wyoming and seeing the snowcapped Grand Tetons in front of you is awe inspiring no matter how many times you see it. It truly begs to be photographed and added to your photo library. Our Grand Tetons Flower Road Side Adventure will take you to some of the most epic locations in the park. From the spring flowers to where Ansel Adams stood and photographed his famous "Tetons and Snake River" photography piece, our Grand Tetons Road Side Adventure has it all. Additionally, wildlife is common where we can often see and photograph moose, buffalo, grizzly bears, elk, and more. We will also explore and photograph the still waters of Schwabacher landing and the famous barns of the "Mormon Row". Throughout the entire trip we will make sure that you will be in the prime spot to capture the majestic beauty the Grand Tetons has to offer.
Additionally, during our visit at the Grand Tetons we will also explore the first National park in the United States, the Yellowstone National Park that was established in 1872. Yellowstone provides beautiful landscapes along with its abundant wildlife throughout the park which will provide an incredible photography experience. From grizzly bears that roam thru the park to the Grand Prismatic there will be photo opportunities around every corner.

Photography Adventure Schedule
The adventure will begin on June 10th and we will be meeting at "The 49'er Inn Suites Hotel" by 3pm. From there we will be checking in to our rooms and getting our camera gear ready so we can quickly head out and shoot our first sunset of the trip. However, before we take off for the first time, we will have a meeting downstairs in the lobby at 4:45pm to introduce ourselves to everyone and answer any questions before heading out.
We will be shooting sunrise and sunset daily and if the weather is in our favor we can also shoot later into each morning. Then, after each morning, we can head back to the hotel to rest and grab some breakfast.
Every day we will be shooting different locations in Grand Tetons and Yellowstone depending on weather conditions and what areas look the best for spring flowers. Specifically, the Grand Tetons are known for an abundance of wildlife, so we will have great opportunities to photograph Moose, Bears, Bison, Foxes, Elk, and Owls throughout the trip.
Photography Tour will end on June 14th after we shoot sunrise.
