My name is Trent Sizemore and I am a wildlife photographer, instructor, and tour guide living in West Yellowstone, Montana – just outside of Yellowstone National Park.
I have been working and teaching photography as art since 2011, from The Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming.
I’ve had my work published internationally both online and in print. In November 2017, I had a full gallery of my Yellowstone photography displayed at my alma mater, Young Harris College.
In addition to my own group workshops, I've also led regional events for North American Nature Photography Association in spring of 2017, winter 2018, and will be leading another winter workshop for NANPA in 2019.
Trent Sizemore Photography is authorized by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior, to conduct services in Yellowstone National Park.
WHAT MAKES MY WORKSHOPS UNIQUE?
When it comes to improving their photography, many people get overwhelmed by the unorganized "tips and tricks" online or the daunting camera manual. These Yellowstone photography workshops help photographers master the fundamentals of their camera so they can focus on the creative aspects of their work - where truly great photographs are made.
I know how hard it is to teach yourself something new, and I've helped hundreds of photographers with the fundamental concepts that lead to real improvements in their work. When you master the fundamentals, you can shift your focus to creativity, learn to see in a new way, and start creating photographic art that has a real impact on other people.
When you join a photography workshop in Yellowstone, you will:
1. Master the fundamental technical aspects of photography that help you get great photos.
2. Learn to creatively utilize these fundamentals to create an intentional piece of photographic art.
3. Experience and photograph with a local guide some of the best wildlife and landscapes that North America has to offer.
Truly great photographs combine a mastery of the fundamentals with the personal touch of the photographer's unique creativity. If you're confused about using your camera to its fullest potential, you're just relying on luck to get a great shot. Once you master the fundamentals, you'll no longer be worried about having the wrong settings and missing a shot. You'll enjoy getting out to photograph nature, knowing you have all the tools needed to transform your creative vision into a photograph.
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. Ethical photography is important to me, and will be of utmost importance with my workshop clients. Although most wildlife will be near the road, we won't be able to photograph them unless we find a safe pullout to stop and shoot. Stopping in the road is not allowed, but we will be able to pass by multiple times if we can't stop.
