Advanced Winter Wildlife Photography
January 21 - 25
Is your camera one of your best friends? Do you want to learn more about wildlife and how to tell their stories? Then come immerse yourself with fellow enthusiasts in the heart of Yellowstone’s northern range. At the Buffalo Ranch, you will wake up right in the middle of this magical place! Witness the struggle for winter survival as its inhabitants go about their lives. We’ll spend most of the time in the field, so you will have ample opportunities to photograph wildlife and learn about their behaviors, all while practicing techniques and the ethics of wildlife photography. We will be out early to take maximum advantage of the light and animal movements and work on critiques in the evening.
