Wildlife and Landscapes

Incredible Fall Colors 

Fall in the Grand Teton National Park is a gift to any photographer attempting to capture nature at its finest.  The colors of the park dramatically change establishing astonishing landscape settings with the dominating Tetons as a backdrop.  Bears are fattening up and actively feeding in the lower elevations while Elk and Moose fiercely compete for mates as the Rut swings into high gear.  As the bugling of the Elk warn all that winter is coming, you can’t help but slow down and appreciate the opportunity to capture this magical time of year with your camera. That is where Tripod Travelers steps in.  We plan several trips to the Grand Tetons each year during Spring, Summer, and Fall as the park offers many unique perspectives as the seasons change.  Our Fall Trips focus on the Rut, Bears, Moose, and Elk.  We get our clients in safe positions to learn, appreciate, and capture these incredible animals as they prepare for winter.  Whether Bears digging up Tubers, Elk beginning their annual migration to the Elk reserve or Moose competing in a marsh for their companion; we do our research and leverage our experience to teach our clients how to locate and photograph these animals as they all focus on the next 6 months of surviving the harsh cold that lies ahead.  The landscape is also quickly transforming with Fall colors making for incredible landscape opportunities. Based on the time of year, we know the specific locations animals frequent throughout the park and we get you safely in position to seize the opportunity of photographing nature at its finest.   Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.

Why Choose this Trip?

Professional Photography and Enthusiastic Guides

  • Create a learning environment where we get both you and your camera ready for the many types of wildlife and nature photography opportunities we will experience. There will be several working sessions in the field to help you improve your photography skills and practice anticipating and reacting to both animals and the environment in which you are shooting.  

  • Visit locations that place our photographers in the best viewing sites to capture animals in their natural habitat. Including Moose, Bear, Elk, Bison, and other animals as presented. Our focus will be early mornings and late afternoons in areas that give our clients the best chance to photograph at designated, safe distances.

  • The Tetons is one of the best places in America to capture amazing foregrounds against the stunning mountain range background.  We will take full advantage of sunrise and sunset opportunities incorporating the Tetons, wildlife and other subjects in frame. If the skies are favorable, we will also venture out at night for an optional session to capture the Milky Way in the park. 

  • We are authorized park permittees in all government regulated locations we visit, this includes National Parks and Wildlife Refuges.  Be careful booking photography workshops that cannot provide proper documentation, it can end your trip very quickly.
