One of the most stunning and awe inspiring places on Earth, GTNP is an amazing destination for an adventurous getaway and creating incredible images! Join us in this beautiful location for an instructional workshop focused on capturing barns, buffalo, horses, and wild rivers with the (Truly) Grand Tetons as a backdrop. We will base out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and spend four days exploring and shooting the surrounding area looking for the ultimate Teton image.
Dan has been fine tuning his workshops and methods of teaching photography for years. He is a very passionate and creative teacher, who believes in spending a large amount of the workshop instructing & giving assignments. He will give several group lectures as well as one-on-one instruction and critique to each student, catering to each individuals personal photographic level. Landscape photography business idea's will also be touched upon. Dan's goal for each workshop is to help you see the final printed image in your "mind's eye" before you push the button. You will learn Dan's entire process for creating powerful & dramatic images starting with where to shoot & why; how to master composition; understand light; set up your camera; & what you need to carry in your camera bag. Dan will also teach an afternoon session on LR post processing techniques. He uses a unique approach that leads to natural, but vibrant images. Dan is committed to helping you get images you will be proud of!

Lodging is up to each individual participant. Dan will be staying at The Parkway Inn & Spa and encourages participants to stay there so that it is easier for us to all convene and conclude the days activities with a minimum of travel. When making your reservation at The Parkway you will need to call 800-247-8390 & tell them you are part of the Dan Ballard Photography Workshop. We are holding a block of rooms for workshop participants for $199.00 per night + tax. Please book your room as early as possible, but no later than May 15, 2016.
Transportation to & from Jackson Hole is up to each individual participant. There is an airport in Jackson Hole. Driving conditions into Grand Teton National Park will consist of mainly paved roads, so a standard car will be sufficient. When possible we prefer that participants car pool with each other. If you are willing to drive please let us know.
We will be heading out each morning around 5am to shoot through the great morning light, returning for a late breakfast around 10. We will then have a session on composition, understanding light, processing, etc. The afternoon will be free to explore Jackson, work on your images or rest. I will be available if you need a little extra editing help. We will have an early dinner and then head out again for the evening light and work sessions at around 6 if there are clouds (returning around 10). If the weather is clear we may take at least one evening off.
