Winter in Yellowstone, steaming geysers, boiling hot springs this is possibly the best winter large mammal photo opportunity on the planet which makes this such a special trip.
Our guide Jess has been living, photographing, guiding and instructing in the Yellowstone eco-system for over 30 years. Jess spends over a hundred days a year photographing Yellowstone and its wildlife. Thousands of his award winning Yellowstone photographs have appeared in publications.
During your time in Yellowstone we will concentrate on capturing the essence of wintering in the world’s first National Park. From pre dawn to after the last twilight we will hunt for images of the beauty of this land in the grip of winter. Our quest will include the master of all hunters, the charismatic wild wolf. Our hunting ground will be the wonderland of Yellowstone in winter with steaming thermal areas, frost covered wildlife, pristine snow covered wild lands, if you have dreamed of photographing wild wolves I feel this is your best chance.
Of course we will also photograph the wintering home of ice rimed Bison, Elk, Moose, Coyotes, Bighorn Sheep, Mule Deer, Pronghorn Antelope, Beaver, Trumpeter Swans, and Bald Eagles. A day will be spent photographing at a private bird feeding station, we will also be visiting at least one Ghost Town.
We will visit the steaming geysers and thermal areas of Norris geyser Basin and the interior of the Yellowstone. You will photograph Old Faithful, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and the winter wilderness of Hayden Valley. This will all be done from our warm secure modern private snow coach.
As with all wildlife photography there are no guarantees of photographing wolves but we have had many days of photographing wolves during the past years.
