Opportunities for Creativity

Opportunities for Creativity

Take a break from the "classic" landscapes for a while to explore more creativity.





Grand Teton National Park is one of the most beautiful and majestic landscapes in the world, with the Teton Range rising more than 7,000 feet above the valley. Located in northwestern Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park has some of the more dramatic scenery in the Rocky Mountains. It is sure to be an inspiration for any photographer looking to create beautiful images.

Spend 5 days in the magnificent Grand Teton National Park exploring your creativity with Christine Hauber and I. We will be there to guide you with composition, exposure, depth of field and seeing beautiful light as you expand your knowledge of photography. Your individual needs will be our priority.

This is a shooting-intensive photo workshop with not only one but two full-time fine art photographers and instructors with over 45 years of combined professional experience who will provide you with hands-on, one-on-one instruction in the field. In addition we also have a full-day classroom session scheduled for hands-on work processing and enhancing your photographs.

We will help you develop your artistic eye and find your own personal vision and style and teach you techniques that will enable you to move forward technically and artistically. We will teach you what we know from our extensive backgrounds and experience in photography in a way that is easy and fun to learn and which allows you room to grow and advance from your new found knowledge and renewed enthusiasm in photography.

With a student to teacher ratio of 4:1 for this workshop there will be numerous opportunities for you to work with us on a one-on-one basis. Our students have absolutely loved this aspect of our photo workshops and thus has led to great discussions and learning opportunities.

Christine and I will be staying at the Virginian Lodge in Jackson, Wyoming – just a short drive from downtown Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. The Lodge features regular rooms and also has an RV park for those traveling via RV.

It is not required that you stay at the Virginian Lodge, however we will be using it as a base location and would be more convenient for those staying there. It is also the location of the classroom session. We were not able to secure room discounts as June and July are their busy months. It is recommended to make reservations here or anywhere else in Jackson ASAP as most places fill up months in advance!!
