Yellowstone in Autumn

As the leaves begin to change and the air temperatures drop below freezing at night – the greater Yellowstone Region comes to life in a kaleidascope of colors. Join me for a six day lodge-based photography tour of Yellowstone National Park during the Autumn months. Crowds are gone at this point, many species of wildlife become very active as they move from the surrounding mountains into Yellowstone’s lower Northern Range and Caldera. This is really a great time to photograph the park. Each day we will arise early to seek out wildlife such as Wolves, Bears, Bighorn sheep, Bison, Moose & Elk. I’ve spent years exploring Yellowstone National Park and will show you some of the best and lesser known spots to photograph wildlife as well as breathtaking landscapes.

We’ll explore the better known spots such as Old Faithful, Lone Star Geyser and Artists Point as well as some lesser known locales that are off the beaten path. Did I mention the tourists are mostly gone this time of year!? Fall is such a wonderful time in the Northern Rockies – there is a chilly bite to the morning air when the hot steam from Thermal Features appears more evident. Days are typically still warm however although there is usually a good mix of storm activity which can make for excellent photography conditions.

Join me this year for a Photography Tour of Yellowstone in the Autumn months!

“A great trip overall! Yellowstone in the fall is something everyone should see at some point in their lives. Russ has been leading tours in the region for several years and knows the area well. Not only did we capture some stunning photos of the Geysers and Wildlife of Yellowstone but we also learned a great deal about the natural and human history of the park. Russ is a great workshop leader and treats you like family. We saw some great spots that were well off the beaten path but also got great images of Old Faithful, Lone Star Geyser and seemingly unlimited wildlife! On top of that the lodges and food were excellent and well thought out for this specific itinerary. Thanks Russ!”
