workshop embracing digital photography in both editorial
and nature/wildlife photography. A workshop where solid and
practical instruction is combined with artistry, originality
and creativity. The spectatular Grand Tetons are the perfect
setting for rekindling your enthusiasm for great photography.
The networking that goes on with faculty and other participants
is unequalled, and the faculty members are the best in their
fields in America. Not only is there formal instruction and
individual counseling, but each evening ends with unique

With 10-15 instructors and staff onsite, and
attendance that is capped at 60, each student can be assured
a low student-to-instructor ratio and ample personalized
attention. The combined knowledge of the faculty is outstanding
and attendees have a chance to get not one or two opinions
on their work, but a dozen points of view from a cross-section
of the profession assembled nowhere else.
Expect ample time for shooting in the field,

We ask that you bring all of the equipment with which you
normally photograph, especially Nikon shooters, as you will
be able to use the large consignment of Nikon cameras and
lenses in conjunction with your own. Photographers that currently
use other brands of cameras are free to use your own equipment
or check out a variety of digital equipment from
Nikon, in addition to receiving instruction to get you up
to speed. You'll need to provide your own laptop or other
workstation to download and edit your images, though we can
assist you with a variety of demo software available.
