Grand Teton National Park, WY

There are mountains and there are the Tetons. These jagged peaks seem to rise out of nowhere! Join landscape photographers Mandy Lea and Kendrick Callaway in one of the most inspiring places for anyone who loves to photograph breathtaking landscapes—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!

Of course, we’ll hit all of the classic spots like Mormon Row, Schwabacher’s Landing, and Oxbow Bend. Mandy and Kendrick will share some of their favorite hidden gems that they have discovered from years of exploring 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 – 10  Note: The group size is being limited to ten 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, Mirrorless, or Smart Phone)
  • 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:

Non-shooting spouses/friends: We understand this workshop may fall into your vacation time and you might have a spouse or friend you’d like to join along for sight-seeing, and we are thrilled to have them along! So, we’ll give non-shooting spouses/friends a discount of 50% off the registration fee.

Transportation: Most of our driving will be on paved roads. 

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. We recommend arriving the day before the workshop begins and leaving the day after the workshop ends to avoid any hectic traveling schedules. 

  • There are a few RV and tent campgrounds with full hookups 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! We’ll have a few campsites reserved in a nearby campground. If you’re interested in one of these sites please contact us! 
  • 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.

  2. Amy Keng

    This workshop was truly excellent. Mandy does a wonderful job assisting a wide range of abilities. I’m thrilled with how much my beginner-level skills improved! The workshops are fun, and quite affordable. I’ll be a repeat customer for sure!

    This was my first workshop with Mandy. The workshop was suggested by a friend who has attended several of Mandy’s workshops in the past. I am so grateful to my friend who introduced me. It was excellent. The schedule, pace and locations were all very well planned and executed. The size of the group was perfect with everyone receiving personalized instruction and coaching. I hope to do more workshops in the future with Mandy.

    The Grand Teton workshop was my first with Mandy. It was excellent! Mandy and Kendrick took us to some amazing locations which allowed us to come away with some beautiful photos. I greatly appreciated the personalized instruction that she gave. I believe I left a much better photographer. I highly recommend attending one of her workshops!
