The most dramatic and recognizable mountain range in the country, Grand Teton National Park offers endless photographic opportunities. Moose are out and about and the fall color should be at peak. Who can go to the Tetons, though, and not capture the great landscapes that can be found around almost every turn of the Teton Range. This trip brings all of this together offering a full array of subjects.

Find new twists to some popular locations that others will not take you to. You will learn to paint with light before sunrise at a couple of tried but true locales as well as shoot one scene from a completely different angle than you've seen before.

With the week offering a new moon, some very different shooting opportunities will also be explored as we'll spend one night exploring angles to capture stars and Milky Way scenes over the mountains and barns.

Not many places can bring together great landscapes and a variety of wildlife like the Tetons. Throughout the park we'll travel to spots to photograph moose, bison and elk. Prime landscape locations include Oxbow Bend, Jenny Lake, String Lake and the Snake River Overlook among others. Barns and cabins will be visited along Mormon Row, Cunningham Cabin and an old building not many people know about that captures a great reflection of the mounts and fall color.

I was fortunate enough to get in late for the Teton workshop and learned something new every day from Andy. He really knows how to find great shots and his workshops are a great value. He is a real workhorse, very fair and has amazing passion. Steve B.

While we are in the field, discussions and examples of composition, lighting, fall abstracts, HDR and panorama techniques will be emphasized. The workshop will also include a full session of workflow, presentations to help improve your vision and image review. This session will include:

* Adobe Camera Raw techniques (many of which also apply to Lightroom)
* Photo Stitching
* Milky Way techniques

* Hotel, ground transportation and all meals included in cost
* Pick-up and drop-off from designated airport
* Hands-on help in the field and in-room digital instructional programs
* Hand-outs related to the particular trip as well as other photo tips and information
* Our aim is to help you capture great images in a relaxed atmosphere and teach
material that will help you take better photos the next time you go into the field
