Yellowstone Photo Tours with Max Waugh
Tours led by a professional photographer with over a decade of park experience
I've just returned from two incredible spring tours. Nearly every day was packed with great sightings and photo ops, and the variety this spring was incredible. Check the Tour Reports page for upcoming summaries of these tours. Reserve your spot for next spring by contacting me and reserving a spot.
Max Waugh has been photographing wildlife in the region since the year 2000 and has become intimate with some of the best locations to find many of the park's major species. Having previously published maps and guides used by thousands of visitors every year, Max is now able to share his knowledge first-hand on these guided Yellowstone photo tours.
Yellowstone & Grand Teton Fall Tour: September 22 - 28, 2014
In Yellowstone, we'll concentrate primarily on wildlife, seeking out bugling bull elk, bears bulking up for winter and many other species.
I may also be available for shorter private sessions in Yellowstone around this time. Contact me if you're interested in scheduling a private excursion.
Yellowstone in Spring: May 30 - June 6, 2015
The spring tour focuses on the park's north and east wildlife-rich quadrants, but we'll go wherever great animal photo ops can be found. There's no shortage of subjects, from grizzly bears and wolves uncovering winter carcasses to newborn bison, elk and deer, to migrating birds passing through the park or building their nests. Our latest spring tours were incredible in terms of the variety and volume of subjects. Don't wait to sign up for next year's tour.
Yellowstone in Winter: 2015 or 2016
The winter tour also gives you a special opportunity to visit Yellowstone's remote interior, which is closed off to wheeled traffic during the winter. We'll visit several of the park's famous thermal areas, which remain active year-round and provide unique landscape photo opportunities. Our trip to the interior also involves visits to the Madison River (home to endangered trumpeter swans) and the vast Hayden Valley and Yellowstone Falls.
