Yellowstone Wildlife & Landscape Photography
If you’re wanting to explore the world of photography, and appreciate stunning landscapes and world class wildlife, this Getaway is for you!
WWE Photographer Lee Horbachewski and Co-Founder Jenny MacNevin loved the 2017 Yellowstone Getaway so much they’re doing it again. Join them on an unforgettable weekend at Yellowstone National Park with the focus on basic photography tips while exploring, hiking, and taking in the breathtaking beauty of Yellowstone.
After this weekend you will have a better understanding of composition, camera settings and basic editing, that will inspire you to get out, explore and capture the every day beauty around you.
OCTOBER 11-14, 2018
Arrive at our amazing log cabin just north of the quaint town of Gardiner. If flying, we recommend flying into Bozeman International Airport, and renting a car. Check into the cabin starting at 6pm.
Once you arrive, you will settle into the cabin, meet your roomies and ease into the weekend. Dinner and introductions will be around 7pm, we will chat about what our adventures look like for the weekend and the day ahead.
After dinner, we can enjoy relaxing on the deck overlooking the Yellowstone River and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, and chat about basic photography composition and settings. A good night sleep is in order for our early wake up the next day.
Breakfast will be continental style with a variety of oatmeal, fruit, bagels and spreads. Then it's time to pack a lunch and head out at 6.30am to Lamar Valley, the best place in Yellowstone to see wildlife. We will be doing lots of driving in search of wolves, bears, bighorn sheep, coyotes, elk and bison. If time permits, we may enjoy a hike on the Lamar River Trail and/or Lost Creek Falls and Lost Lake.
After a full day of adventure, you will be able to unwind and relax at the cabin. Dinner will be around 7pm where we will go over the plan for the next day and do an overview of photography tips.
Breakfast will be a repeat of the day before. We will pack our lunches and head out at 8.00am to experience the scenic and varied landscapes of North Yellowstone: Mammoth Hot Springs, Norrie Geyser Basin and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.
After yet another full day of beauty and exploration we will enjoy a casual dinner around 7pm, and for anyone interested, a basic Lightroom editing session.
Breakfast will be a repeat of the day before as we get ready to check out of the cabin. For those who are inclined to do so, we will go back to Yellowstone National Park for some more Landscape and Wildlife photography. This day is yours to explore and enjoy the magic of Yellowstone.
