Picture Perfect Photo Safari

Morning Tour

From early morning bison and elk whose breath condenses on the cool air, to the sun shining through the vapor clouds above thermal streams, to the rainbow only visible for a few minutes each day, and only from a single vantage point, in the mist of the Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Yellowstone National Park is a paradise for shutterbugs. Your host, a driver-guide who is also a professional photographer, will tailor the tour to the interests, skill levels, and equipment of the group to create a day of memorable photographs for all.

One of our safaris originates from Old Faithful Inn, and takes in thermal areas and wildlife north of Old Faithful Village; the other departs Lake Yellowstone Hotel to visit wildlife-rich Hayden Valley and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. For both, the goal of this five-hour tour is intriguing photographic opportunities coupled with (for those who’d like it) instruction on how to better use your camera means a limited number of in-depth stops will be the order of the day. For a fantastic outing for you and your camera, sign up for the Picture Perfect Photo Safari!

Take the photo Safari that leaves from Lake Lodge at 5.45am. This time is the best for avoiding traffic but getting right to where the animals are. The photographer running the safari knows right where to go.... we started with seeing a beaver, over 5 grizzlies, moose, bald eagles, bison(of course) and took us right to where you'd see the rainbow at the falls... even providing a filter to enhance the rainbow in the photos. The photographer had so many tips and even worked with iphone cameras too. This is for everyone from the skilled photographer to the hobbyist photographer to a person like me just wanted to see wildlife. The photographer knows right where he saw the animals the day before and you are there. You are taken to the perfect spot as well for the sunrise photo. Don't miss this trip.
