Fall Colors in Grand Teton National Park
September 20 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 23 2018 @ 11:00 am$300.00
Grand Teton National Park in fall offers photographers some of the most majestic and colorful landscapes in the United States. From iconic scenes, like Oxbow Bend and Snake River Overlook, to blazing aspens along shorelines. Grand Teton National is one of the most photographed parks in the National Parks System for good reason. Grand Tetons’ embarrassment of riches includes alpenglow on snowcapped peaks, surrounded by pristine lakes and wide-open spaces which makes it an excellent location to capture some award-winning images. Grand Teton is also considered the best national park to photograph wildlife as well.
The park is nestled along the Teton Range, a sub range of the Rocky Mountains and Jackson Hole; the valley that the Snake River meanders through. The Teton Range is often called America’s most spectacular. It is a very young range (10 million years old) and therefore still has very sharp features. Incredible landscapes abound, as does wildlife.
Join APT for a bucket-list photography adventure. We will take you to the most scenic locations at just the right times to capture these locations in fall-colored glory. We will also take you to some less known areas but are just as beautiful. Of course, we will share tips and insights on how to perfectly capture this magnificent landscape.
The light moves fast, so you will receive photo tips sheets in advance to ensure you’re ready to capture these beautiful scenes when the light is hitting just right. After the workshop, you’ll receive video tutorials demonstrating how we post-process the images we captured.
Due to our permit restrictions, we are limited to 12 participants on this exciting workshop.
