All transportation during the tour is included, but you will still need to arrive in West Yellowstone or Gardiner (winter only) on your own. 

Which airport should I fly into?

Bozeman, Montana is the best airport to fly into for all dates. Idaho Falls, Jackson, or Salt Lake City are other (farther away) options. Bozeman is roughly 2 hours from West Yellowstone, so you'll need to rent a car or arrange a shuttle from the airport. 

West Yellowstone also has an airport open from May-October:

What lodging do you recommend?

In West Yellowstone (spring and fall trips), I would recommend staying at the Holiday Inn, Brandin Iron Inn, or Lazy G Motel.

In Gardiner (winter trips only), I would recommend the Ridgeline Hotel, Absaroka Lodge, or Super 8. As long as you stay in the town, you should be close enough for the workshop.

I do not recommend staying inside the park, since I will be picking you up in town each morning. 

What skill level do I need to be for the workshop?

All skill levels are welcome, and I've had people who just bought their camera on my workshops in the past. 

What camera gear would you recommend?

I suggest bringing at least a wide angle lens (17-40mm), medium telephoto (70-200mm), and a super telephoto for wildlife (400mm+). You should bring all gear you have, unless the focal length is covered with another lens. I rarely use a tripod except for video, but you may need one if you can't hold your lens steady for long periods of time.

Do you offer private workshops?

Yes! Please contact me via email to inquire about availability. Private rates start at $997 per day (for 1-3 people), with discounts available for multiple day trips.
