Moose have come together this time of year and it is common to see 10+ moose in a day. In addition to moose, we will photograph the beautiful winter landscape surrounding Jackson Hole. Technical skills and photographic composition are of utmost importance to your photograph quality, so we will cover the typical skills and lessons taught in all of Cody's other workshops. Please contact Cody at: (307) 699-3394 for more information about this workshop. The winter days are short, so we will be out in the field photographing as much as possible! Sunrise this time of year is around 7:30am and sunset is before 5pm. (Wildlife is wild, so unfortunately I can't 100% guarantee moose).

Topics we will cover:

  • How to get the right exposure
  • Composing a creative image
  • Depth of Field
  • Camera operations/functions
  • Camera equipment
  • Digital workflow, editing
  • Different types of photography: Scenic, wildlife, action, etc.
  • And lots more
