Spring is the best time to photograph baby animals in the Yellowstone & Grand Teton ecosystems. Our Nikonians Academy resident professional wildlife photographer Jim Stamates is leading two separate trips to these National Parks and you are invited to join him.

He will host his popular springtime photo adventures in succession at these two parks, starting late this month and his invitation is open to either or both workshops in a row.

These field workshops will help you learn the ins and outs of wildlife photography in North America.

Join Nikonians Academy with Jim and Kathy Stamates while learning to shoot, and experience Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in the spring.
