Join local resident and passionate conservation photographer and writer, Deby Dixon, for an eco-friendly wildlife photography tour of Yellowstone National Park.
The world of Yellowstone National Park is filled with endless opportunities of seeing and photographing wildlife, if you know where to look. After living right outside the North gate of the park, and visiting on most days since 2012, I still feel the excitement of possibilities on every visit. I want to share that thrill with you when you join me for a custom designed day or two in the park.
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?
So that you can sit back and take in the wonders of the park while I find the wildlife and tell you the many stories of the many animals and of Yellowstone.
Yellowstone is a large national park with many nooks and crannies. For most people, this is a dream vacation and they want to make the best out of their time by having a chance to see and photograph as much as possible. With the Yellowstone’s Wild World, 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 basic skills of photography in, or are more skilled, you will benefit from one of our tours. Just tell us what is most important and we will design the day to 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.
Please note, we will work hard to find the wildlife, however, that we can not make any guarantees.
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. 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.
