Triple D Game Farm

Discuss this workshop

A Three-day Wildlife Photography Adventure at the world famous Triple D Game Farm.

Come with us to the Triple D Game Farm , just outside of Glacier National Park for a three-day wildlife photography adventure.

This time of year is prime for babies and newborn animals. Our plan is to photograph bobcats, mountain lions, bears, foxes, wolves, tigers, lynx and much more!

We'll be shooting a minimum of 8 photographic sessions over three days. Everyone will have the option to extend your stay for another day for an optional photo shoot at a reduced rate of $150 per person per animal session.

Our group size is limited to 10 participants, so you'll have plenty of time to work with our professional instructor (Mike Hagen) to get great shots.

This Workshop will help you advance your wildlife photography skills and build your photographic portfolio with stunning images of the most sought after animals.

The Triple D has been in business for over 30 years and knows how to provide the photographer with the best wildlife photography experience out there.

Most of our time is prioritized around photographing animals. During the shoots, your instructor will be by your side helping you build on your photographic strengths and developing new skills around wildlife photography.

Each day we will have critique and review sessions while also learning about processing our images in software such as Nikon Capture NX2 and Photoshop.

Note: You are expected to arrive the night before so we can start early on the first day.
