AN Epic Winter Odyssey in Yellowstone

 FEBRUARY 8 – 13, 2023

A SMALL GROUP

PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

IN YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

WITH AMI VITALE, MICHELLE VALBERG & JEFF MITCHELL

 

Join us for a rare, once in a lifetime experience, in one of the most beautiful places on the planet with three Masters of Photography! This experience will be an excellent opportunity to make epic images and learn new skills in an intimate and breathtaking setting. 

Winter in Yellowstone National Park is magical and an experience that very few people get to experience.

It is a part of the Rocky Mountain range with steaming rivers, meadows, geysers and abundant wildlife. This area is both an adventurer’s playground and a photographer’s paradise. 

This journey is all about learning, collaboration and sharing which will make our creative processes (and genius) blossom. On location, in-the-moment instruction, by 3 world renowned photographers will help provide you with the tools to create unique photographs – with guaranteed fun, laughter, illumination, creativity and new friendships gained.

Our journey will be an unforgettable chapter and one we are all looking forward to!
