A photography tour in Yellowstone with us will be one of those special days in the park you will remember always.
Why hire a guide to show you around Yellowstone?
Yellowstone is a large national park with many nooks and crannies. For most people, this is the dream vacation of a lifetime and they want to make the best out of their time by having a chance to see and photograph what the locals know about. With the Yellowstone Daily, your guide lives and breathes Yellowstone everyday and has a knowledge that one only gets from years of daily visits to the park.
Whether you are a beginning photographer who is wanting to acquire some basic skills of photography in order to capture special images, or are more skilled but wants to know how and where to get those unique wildlife images, you will benefit from one of our tours. Just tell us what is most important to you and we will design the day to hopefully make your dreams come true. As an example, are you most interested in Bears, wolves, bison, landscapes, thermals, sunrise or sunset – let us know.
During the tour we will provide as much or as little photo instruction as you feel comfortable with. Know how to change the settings on your camera in order to get the most out of your day. We will go over the rules of the park and be careful to follow those the best we can – always listening to the rangers if they ask us to do anything. We will talk about ethical wildlife photography and what that means – more importantly, why it is essential for wildlife photography. And, we will combine the park’s rules with making sure that the animals are comfortable with our presence, to get the best shots. We will talk about composition, lighting, equipment and what makes a photo stand out from all of the others. We will also talk about the habits and particulars of the different species and provide information on how to find the wildlife on your own. We have found that the best wildlife photography opportunity is the one we find.
Yellowstone is the go to place for wildlife photography, which is our specialty. We know where to find the animals, due to years of experience and our daily visits into the park. Please note, however, that we can not guarantee that you will see a wolf or bear, only that we can provide the best possibility available.
If you want a chance to get great wildlife images, patience will be required. There are many days that we wait in one place just to get an opportunity to photograph a wolf or a bear. Our dream is always to capture the bear and the wolf interacting with one another. We will discuss why these interaction moments are so desirable. So, bring your patience, or let us know if you just want to drive around to find as much variety as possible. Your day, your call!
We do not allow smoking during the tours and ask that no one use perfumes, colognes or hair sprays. We will also talk about the most professional and courteous way to behave during a wildlife sighting. There is so much to learn in Yellowstone and with the expertise of your guide, you will be way ahead of the rest.
