This will be my 3rd winter at the ranch with clients and it is a really special time. The animals are at their finest with thick winter coats and with a snowy environment as a setting it is really quite dramatic. The animals love to romp in the snow! You’ll come back from this one with amazing shots from a winter wonderland in Montana.
Without doubt this is the best if not the only time to photograph their Snow Leopard, truly amazing! Then of course there is the tiger which will be about 8 months old and full of himself, that will be awesome! I know most people love the big cats during these workshops, but the little animals like fishers, martens and fox are just great in the snow as well.
I hope I never have to pick just one time of the year to photograph these amazing animals, but if I did, it might have to be winter! Come see for yourself.
Another wrinkle in the schedule is that I’ve scheduled my workshop to sit next to one of Triple D’s most popular events, their winter Western Horse session. This optional extension will be January 8-9th and the cost is $550. If you do sign up for the Horse Roundup and you should, I will also be there to help you with your photography, but we will not have classroom sessions on those days.
And finally…whew…there will be an opportunity to photograph some incredible birds of prey form a local rehab center. The birds are not releasable and have become animal ambassadors and are used to teach kids of all ages about conservation. We will pose these great birds in perfect light on perfect perches for perfect photography. A highly recommended addition to the trip. As above, this is an extra and costs $225

Here are a few images to give you a taste of what to expect. I’ve taken a lot of images there over the years and love going there. If it is a mammal and it is in the snow, I likely photographed it on one of my workshops. You can browse the images…HERE.
