White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons

“White Pelican in Fog on the Snake River at the Tetons”
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

 

Earlier this month I spent 4 days in Jackson, Wyoming exhibiting at the Jackson Hole Art Festival. On my way back to Bozeman, MT I headed out early that day so I could photograph the sunrise at the Oxbow Bend Turnout.

While photographing the sunrise, I noticed this white pelican slowly cruising the Snake River coming towards me. I took the wide angle lens off my camera and put my 150-600mm lens on my camera and tripod and photographed the pelican as it was floating past me.

Elk Cows with Calf at Grand Teton National Park

I came across a herd of elk shortly after sunrise at Grand Teton National Park last month as they were on the move. I quickly parked the car in a pull-off and started taking photos from just outside the car.

They came out of the woods and into a clearing and this group of cows, with a calf, paused for just a moment to get a look around to see if there was any danger in the area.

Join me for 4 days in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming at Grand Teton National Park in the spring when there are normally a lot of wildflowers to photograph, striking sunrises and sunsets, with chances for wildlife too.

This workshop is designed for any skill level, yet a DSLR or equivalent (like the Sony Mirrorless cameras) with interchangeable lenses and a sturdy tripod are required, as is a basic working knowledge of your camera. Most students who take my workshops are beginners to advanced amateurs. This workshop is filled with hands-on instruction, demonstrations, and even a session or 2 in the field with my laptop going over some processing tips.

Streaking Clouds at Sunset at the Tetons

“Streaking Clouds at Sunset at the Tetons”
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

This was photographed at Schwabachers Landing – a popular place to photograph sunsets and sunrises at Grand Teton National Park. Beavers have dammed the Snake River here providing photographers with a mirror-like surface when there is no wind.

I photographed this scene just as the sun was setting behind the Tetons while out scouting for an upcoming photo workshop I was teaching there. I was experimenting with a new filter I purchased from Singh-Ray (use coupon code Matt10 to save 10% on their filters).
