There are mountains and there are the Tetons. These jagged peaks seem to rise out of nowhere! Join Mandy Lea in the place that inspired her to quit her 9-to-5 and take her photography career to the road—Grand Teton National Park. In June, wildflowers are blooming, streams are flowing, and snow is lingering on the high peaks. All of these traits combine to make this an extremely photogenic time of year in one of the most photogenic places on earth!

We’ll hit all of the classic spots like Mormon Row, Schwabacher’s Landing, and Oxbow Bend. Of course, Mandy will share some of her favorite hidden gems that she’s discovered throughout the area, too! During our time together we’ll photograph plenty of sunrises and sunsets, cascading streams, mountain lakes, rivers, and maybe some wildlife if we’re lucky!

Throughout the workshop there will be plenty of opportunities in the field to photograph the beautiful mountain landscapes. Our limited class size allows students to receive more personalized instruction from Mandy. Lastly, a final day image review session with other students will give interesting insight into how different people photograph the same locations.

Workshop Size Limit – 8  Note: The group size is being limited to eight participants to ensure each student gets an appropriate amount of instruction both in the field and with reviewing images.

Camera gear to bring:

  • Camera (DSLR)
  • Lenses (primarily wide angle, wide-mid zoom)
  • Memory Cards & Readers
  • Batteries & Chargers
  • Tripod
  • Laptop (for image review)
  • Backpack to carry camera gear to shooting locations
  • Cable release or intervalometer (recommended)

Other Things to Consider:

Transportation: Most of our driving will be on pavement. However, some shooting locations may be on somewhat rough dirt roads that may be a bit too much for low-clearance 2WD cars.

Altitude: We will be at elevations of 6,000 feet (or higher) during this workshop. Everyone’s body reacts differently to the effects of elevation. Some people have no problems at all, while others struggle. The most common symptoms of altitude sickness are headaches, tiredness, nausea, dizziness, and shortness of breath. There are over-the-counter medicines to help alleviate these symptoms. The most important thing is to stay hydrated and avoid overuse of alcohol if you’re not used to the effects of altitude.

Physical Fitness: Most shooting locations will be at or near parking areas. However, some locations may require up to a mile round-trip of easy-to-moderate, slightly uphill hiking on potentially rocky, uneven terrain. So, comfortable hiking shoes/boots are recommended.

Weather: Temperatures can vary greatly in the Tetons during the summer months. The morning and evening temperatures can be downright cold. It is strongly recommended to bring warm gear (gloves, hats, warm coats, water/windproof jackets, warm pants, base layer pants, etc.) and dress in layers if you are not used to mountain weather. The sun is also much stronger at higher elevations than most people are used to experiencing—WEAR SUNSCREEN! Bug spray is also highly recommended. Mosquitos can be bad around the Tetons. 

Insurance: Travel insurance and/or refundable tickets are highly encouraged as weather or other factors may cause last minute changes or cancellations to the workshop. 

Recommended Accommodations: Lodging reservations are the responsibility of each attendee. To ensure you have a place to stay, please make reservations when completing workshop registration. Jackson, WY is a busy town in the summer and things fill fast!

Recommended Lodging in Jackson, WY (arrive: 6/2/19, checkout: 6/7/19)

  • RV and tent campgrounds with full hookups are plentiful in the Jackson area. It is recommended to stay as close to the northern edge of town as possible for easier access to National Park. Book early since this is a busy time of year and things fill fast!
  • Boondocking (dry camping for free – no hookups) on National Forest land is also available. Contact Mandy if you’re interested in this option!

    I met Mandy at the October 2016 Big Bend Workshop. I enjoyed her spirit and attitude so much that I decided to book a private one week workshop in the Teton’s. This was a bucket list trip for me and was worth every penny. Mandy’s knowledge of the National Park and surrounding area eliminated the need for me to scout the area for a week. We saw so much and Mandy knew the best locations to shoot given changing weather conditions. I highly recommend any workshop with Mandy, but especially a workshop in the Teton’s. I give her 6 stars.
