About my workshops

These workshops combine learning photography with the wildlife of Yellowstone National Park. Photography instruction can be as much or as little as you’d like. Our first priority is finding wildlife to photograph, so a lot of driving to different areas of the park is involved. As a guide I will help you find the animals and get in a good position to photograph them. If you aren’t getting the shots you want, I will be there to answer questions and guide you in correcting camera settings. 

Please note you will get much more out of the workshop if you know what it is you need help with most. Whether it’s basic settings or composition, you should be prepared with questions! 

REQUIREMENTS

By no means are these workshops meant for just experienced photographers. Most people that join me are at the beginner to intermediate level. There is minimal physical activity involved other than walking. Over the course of a day we may walk 1-2 miles at the most, on easy surfaces. I have led people anywhere from age 40 to 80 with no issues, even in the heart of winter. 

Trent Sizemore Photography is authorized by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior, to conduct services in Yellowstone National Park. I am also up to date on CPR and first aid certification.

I spend a lot of my personal time inside the park as well, so I will be taking you to some of my personal favorite spots for wildlife watching. People who have visited Yellowstone many times before are often surprised when I can take them somewhere they've never seen.

A NOTE ABOUT ETHICS

We will not photograph wildlife if it’s unsafe to do so, or if the animal starts showing signs of stress. The welfare of the animal should come before getting the best shots. Although most wildlife will be near the road, we won’t be able to photograph them unless we find a safe place to park. Park rules must be followed by everyone, especially guides.

Testimonial, Jim M.

"I was lucky enough to get into Trent's last workshop of this past Spring season. What a time we had! I lost count of how many Grizzly and Black bears we photographed. We got great pictures of Bears, Elk, Bison, Coyotes, Marmots, different birds, and even a family of Badgers. 

I was amazed how Trent always knew where to head when the bears we were watching went into the forest and out of sight. He would drive down the road to a set spot and each time the bears came out for more photos. Trent knew all the sighting spots and where to look for different animals. I took about 1700 pics during the week and I've parred that count down to about 450. Next time I will slow down that camera a bit more! 

Lastly, Trent picked me up at our hotel each morning and the vehicle accommodations were very comfortable. Trent kept us well informed on the park and animals as we were out hunting. I can't wait to sign up again for Spring 2022!"
