Theodore Roosevelt National Park
Chuck Haney Photo Workshop – Theodore Roosevelt National Park
DATES: June 15-19, 2017
PRICING: Workshop price is $995.00 for instruction only. Students are responsible for their own lodging fees. (Option to extend your workshop by an extra day with Chuck $1,200.00)
LODGING: AmericaInn in Medora, North Dakota 701-623-4800
Camping is also available at Cottonwood Campground in the Park.
All workshops conclude after the morning shoot of the final day (approx 10am) allowing you time to check out of your hotel.
EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens, (17-35mm range) and a zoom or fixed lens, like a 70-200 or 300mm. We have also had some point and shoot shooters attend as well; so don’t feel you have buy that latest and greatest. There’s a lot to learn just by seeing things.
Theodore Roosevelt National Park is one of my absolutely favorite parks. In fact, the second best national park for photographing wildlife (behind only Yellowstone) in my opinion. I have been coming to this uncrowded park for over 20 years to photograph and explore and I know the park quite well. My book, “Theodore Roosevelt Impressions” is now in its second printing.
Here dramatic badlands and high plains are home to a large herd of bison reside along with bands of wild horses, elk, mule deer and prairie dogs. There are also plentiful birds, including songbirds, wild turkeys and owls. We will be visiting when the prairie is transformed by spring rains to a vibrant green with stands of wildflowers adding accents to the already colorful landscape. Best of all, unlike other national parks, we usually have the entire place to ourselves.
I’ve taught classes in this special park many times. The classes are usually small and we have had spectacular results with both wildlife and the weather. Thunderstorms often pass through this region in June and if the timing is right, rainbows and dramatic skies complement the fascinating badlands landscape. Everyone who has taken this class has loved the experience. The small town of Medora where we will be based has “cowboy charm”.
In fact, our delicious breakfast stop, The Cowboy Cafe has become part of the workshop legend.
