WEST SIDE STORY - TETON VALLEY PHOTO EXCURSIONS

1 or 2 Guests
5-6 Hours - Customizable Itinerary 
Offered May through September

The Teton Peaks and Big Hole Mountains, rolling farmland, the Teton River, glaciated canyons, and small-town Americana: welcome to the “quiet side” of the Teton Range. While the national park is spectacular, these alternate views are also beautiful and offer their own unique advantages. Far less crowded, this area is also far less photographed. There are many options to explore. If you're visiting Jackson Hole, consider setting aside some time to head on over the pass for a completely different experience.

Afternoon/late day light is best on the western side of the Tetons, so this is when we’ll head out. Start time is flexible but plan on early- to mid-afternoon. 

Skill level: Amateur on up, though you should have a good working knowledge of your camera. It’s recommended that you have an understanding of/comfort with level with manual mode operation. I'll provide as much or little instruction as you like.

Equipment Suggestions: DSLR or mirrorless, 24-70mm or similar lens and 70-200mm or similar lens. Wide angle if you wish. You probably won't need a long telephoto. Bring a sturdy tripod, extra cards and batteries, and a polarizer if you have one. 

Meeting Place: Your choice of Driggs, Victor or Swan Valley, Idaho

Planning Logistics: Based on our pre-excursion discussion regarding your trip objectives, skill level, and what you’re most interested in photographing, I’ll tailor an itinerary specifically for you and send it in advance. (Conditions will dictate whether we're able to closely stick to the plan or will need to call an audible.) At that time you’ll also receive via email an Acknowledgement of Risk form which will need to be signed before we head out.

Weather: Neither you nor I can control Mother Nature. If persistent, heavy rain or potentially dangerous conditions (i.e. lightning) are forecast I’ll suggest we push our excursion back by a day. A full refund will be issued for cancellations due to extended poor conditions. 

Duration: 5-6 hours 
Transportation to various locations: provided
Snacks and water: provided
Itinerary: structured based on what you'd like to see and photograph
Cost: $550 USD for up to two guests
  
Cancellation Policy: If you must cancel any time between booking and to 14 days prior to your excursion date, a $75 fee will be assessed. Cancellations received within 14 days or less will receive a 50% refund.

Contact me for more information or to inquire about available dates. 

Please Note: As you may be aware, the Teton Pass is currently closed due to a landslide-associated road failure. You can still travel between Jackson, Wyoming and the Teton Valley in Idaho, but will need to drive through the Snake River Canyon to do so. Alternatively, if you're heading out of Yellowstone and traveling south on Route 20, you can access the Teton Valley at Ashton (take Main Street to Route 32).
