Join Nikonians Academy Instructor Jim Stamates for 4 wild days to learn, shoot, and experience Grand Teton National Park in the Fall.
Trip Dates: 10/3/11 - 10/6/11
The landscape of Grand Teton NP has turned to brilliant golds, rusts and browns wetting our appetite for great scenics. We arrive before dawn at Schwabacher Landing and we wait for the sun to kiss the tops of the Grand Tetons. The reflection in the beaver pond adds the perfect touch to our first image of the day. Then on to Mormon Row to get the classic shot of the barns with the snowcapped peaks and fall color backdrop. That’s just the first morning and we have many opportunities awaiting us. We head to Oxbow Bend but not for scenics, instead we look for river otters, moose, bald eagles, and osprey. Elk, bears, pronghorn, and bison fill the memory cards and this is only the first day! Join Nikonians Academy and Jim and Kathy Stamates for 4 wild days to learn, shoot, and experience Grand Teton National Park.
You will shoot:
Bull moose in a backdrop of fall colors are the bill-of-faire at Grand Teton NP and we spend as much time as it takes to get special images of this magnificent animal. Other wildlife may include, Bison, Elk, Pronghorn, Black and Grizzly Bears, Coyote, Fox, River Otters, Beavers, and Wolves. We will also look for Bald Eagles, Great Gray Owls, Trumpeter Swans, and Osprey. Landscapes will include the Snake River, Autumn Colors with the Grand Tetons, Oxbow Bend, Schwabacher Landing, Moulton Barn, and Jackson and Jenny Lakes.
You will experience:
The Grand Tetons in the fall, being near wild animals, the feeling of wilderness, great camaraderie, exceptional photo opportunities, and lots of fun. No strenuous hiking.
Transportation, Lodging and Meals:

We will base out of Jackson, WY.
If you fly, Jackson Hole Airport, JAC, is about 12 miles from Jackson, WY. Jackson Hole is the valley and Jackson is the town. We will shoot all day Thursday Oct. 6 and have a farewell dinner that night so plan accordingly.
