Day 1 (June 6th): Our adventure begins at 2PM at our hotel, Cowboy Village in Jackson, WY where we'll gather for a comprehensive orientation session. We will cover daily logistics and dive into essential wildlife shooting techniques that will equip you with the skills you need to capture unforgettable moments of animals in their natural habitat. Following the session, we'll enjoy an early welcome dinner where we will get to know each other before embarking to our first shoot location where we'll capture wildlife in the transitional hues from sunset into the blue hour.  

Day 2 (June 7th): Our first full day starts out by waking up pre-dawn to drive to our shooting locations to catch wildlife in the the early rays of morning light. After, we'll enjoy breakfast on location and eventually head back to Cowboy Village. In the early afternoon we'll have lunch together in the conference room at Cowboy Village where we will review photos with instructors. We cover a few basic editing techniques to bring out the color and details in the images. After an early dinner we will head out to our next location to capture more wildlife in the beautiful evening light. After evening light fades, we'll head back Cowboy Village to rest for our next early pre-dawn day. 

Day 3 (June 8th): Today is another day of tracking and photographing wildlife. We will start at pre-dawn and drive to our next locations. After learning helpful techniques and reviewing yesterday's photos, we will implement your new knowledge and capture your best wildlife photography yet. Breakfast will be served on site ensuring you won't miss out on any photo opportunities. Lunch will be served at Cowboy Village during another afternoon review and edit session. We will enjoy our last dinner together in Jackson and depart to our sunset shoot location. Although we will survey for wildlife there will be plenty of opportunities to take advantage of landscape photography.  

Day 4 (June 9th): On our final day, we will begin with another pre-dawn sunrise to capture our last moments of wildlife. Following the shoot we'll enjoy our last breakfast together on location before departing home.
