Lamar Buffalo Ranch
Sold out: Please sign up for the waitlist.
While Yellowstone National Park teems with excitement during the day, nighttime holds a special allure and stillness in Yellowstone. Nestled in the fabric of a dark sky, the American West stars twinkle above us with a brightness that few around the world see. The summer milky way shines with its colors and dark spots. The constellations reign overhead in their myth and lore. This workshop will explore and capture Yellowstone's night skies through discussions on nighttime photography, in addition to going out into the field to become better acquainted with our cameras, and to experience and capture Yellowstone by starlight.
About the instructor
Kate Ochsman grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., and has spent years rewilding herself. After securing her Bachelor’s in Communications and Creative Writing from Southern Methodist University, Kate moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film.

After 8 years in LA, Kate gave away all her belongings, sold her car and moved to the South African bush to attend Safari Guide School. Kate is a passionate wildlife guide, photographer, and conservationist. She believes that forming a personal connection to nature is what will ultimately save it, for we protect what we love. Kate is fascinated by animal behavior. She values time spent with wildlife to really get to know them as well as to allow ourselves to slow down and get into the rhythm of the natural world.
