If you haven’t been to Glacier before, now is the time! It is truly my favorite national park and basically in my backyard. Look there are many workshop tours based in the park, why not go with the local photographer who knows it best? I have been exploring and photographing the wonders of the park for nearly 30 years and know it extremely well.
The workshop will be based out of the small town of St Mary on the park’s more scenic eastern side. We will have many great photo options including wildflowers, waterfalls and wildlife. Valleys like Two Medicine, St Mary and Many Glacier will be full of wildflowers and host lakes that can yield stunning reflections on calm mornings. In the past we have had very good luck photographing moose in a small lake. Bighorn sheep and mountain goats are almost always on hand at Logan Pass so bring your telephoto lens. We will also visit the North American Indian Days celebration in nearby Browning on Saturday evening where we will take in a rodeo (with great shooting access) and the colorful dancing contests and ceremonies. The rodeo provides a great way to sharpen your photography skills with predictable moving subjects.
Book early as this class sold old last time and lodging is limited. This class offers a great opportunity to sharpen and improve many aspects of photography skills in a special and unforgettable setting.
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) a medium telephoto lens such as 70-200mm and a 300+mm lens if you are interested in capturing birds or wildlife.
