Bighorn Sheep Rut: A Focused Photography Workshop
Nov 30 - Dec 2
The bighorn sheep rut is one of the most impressive events in the Rockies. Dive deep into the lives of bighorn sheep, behavior, and natural history all while creating beautiful images of these stunning animals. This seminar is grounded in the appreciation of everything bighorn, from rutting and displaying males, to females and their herd positions, last year's babies, and cultural significance.
The class will start with an evening seminar orientation and presentation about bighorn sheep, including photography tips and tricks. The next two mornings and afternoons will be spent in the field with bighorn herds. Following time in the field, the group will travel back to Gardiner for lunch and discussions. All photographers interested in spending time with these incredible residents of the high mountains are welcome to join!
