Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks sit atop of one of the most active geological regions in the world. Everywhere you look, every trail you take, reminds you of the forces responsible for shaping our planet; forces that are very much at work today. This altered universe is full of life and wonders; energies capable of destroying, create a paradise like no other.

This photo-trip is designed to maximize your shooting time, placing you at the right places at the right time to see, photograph and experience what basically no one does. We start our days well before dawn when parks are empty and all the magic happens. The weather is unpredictable and that is what guarantees great pictures. Fog, rain, snow, sun or clouds will be the perfect props for your imagery.

Yellowstone and the Grand Teton grow on you. Watching the sunrise light the glacier lakes with the sky-high mountains as the background is a heavenly experience. This is also the time of the great deer and bison migrations, so wildlife encounters are guaranteed. In Yellowstone, we photograph every single corner of the park; again, focusing on those sites that are unique for image making. We will light paint geysers with a star studded sky as backdrop, we will photograph forests of dead trees covered in the pre-sunrise fog and join bison and deer as they wake up to the roar of steam vents and erupting geysers.

I have studied every corner of this ecosystem and can promise you the best photography experience ever. In this corner of our planet, every minute is different, grandiose and spectacular.
