Grand Teton National Park

07/12/2018 - 07/15/2018

$900.00

Grand Teton National Park offers photographers some of the most majestic and beautiful landscapes in the United States.  From iconic scenes, like Oxbow Bend and Snake River Overlook, to intimate wildflowers and shorelines.  Grand Teton National Park is one of the most photographed parks in the National Parks System for good reason.  The park’s embarrassment of riches includes beautiful mountain 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 them when they are the most beautiful. We will also take you to some lesser known areas, but are just as beautiful. Of course we will share tips and insights on how to perfectly capture this magnificent landscape.  We will be visiting the park during a new moon, so we will be doing some Milky Way photography as well.

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.

We will be meeting for sunset approximately 7:30 pm on Thursday, July 12th.  We will be finishing by noon on Sunday, July 15th.  A detailed itinerary will be sent to those who have RSVP’d for the workshop.
