Grand Teton and Yellowstone workshops up next


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.


Both workshops feature an intense 4 days of photography. Attendees will position themselves each day before dawn for the best light and best wildlife or landscape options. 

Each day ends with your memory cards filled with exceptional images. You will eat lunch as a group at one of the local in-park restaurants with time to socialize and get to know fellow enthusiasts. Instruction will be in the field. No strenuous hiking.

Nikonians is an Authorized Permittee of the National Park Service under Low Impact Wildlife Photography.


This week we have photographers at workshops in London and in Yosemite.

Don't miss out on your own opportunity to join us on a photo workshop somewhere in the world.
