Theodore Roosevelt National Park is one of my absolute 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, know the park extremely well, and even have an amazing secret location in my back pocket. 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 residing 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 stops, The Cowboy Cafe, and the Farmhouse, have become part of the workshop legend.
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 medium telephoto lens up to 300-400mm. A longer telephoto lens of 400, 500 or 600mm could come in handy with the plentiful wildlife and birds in this park.
