NEW! Photographing Spring Wildlife in Rocky Mountain National Park

Jun 11 - Jun 12, 2020


Spring is a wonderful time of year in Rocky Mountain National Park! The wildflowers fill the meadows, the peaks are still capped with snow, the temperatures are getting warmer, and the animals have given birth to their babies. Elk and moose calves are running around the meadows, pikas and marmots can be seen along Trail Ridge Road again, and birds are beginning to raise their chicks. We will head out each morning to a beautiful location to find wildlife in the golden light of early morning and then spend the day photographing a variety of animals on the east and west sides of the park and in Estes Park. While in the field, we will discuss techniques for producing dynamic photos of wildlife, tips for safely being around wild animals, and ethics for photographing wildlife. Ideal for all levels of photographers.
