In late September 2019, I joined up with three other wildlife and landscape photographers to take on Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a few days surrounding the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) WildSpeak West symposium. In this video I review my best images taken with my new gear from this short but productive three-day trip to the Tetons.
My fellow talented companions were Nick Page, Charly Savely, and Mark Smith. Page is a Washington-based landscape photographer who also runs a popular YouTube channel and teaches workshops where he shares his knowledge and passion of creating fine art-style imagery. Savely focuses her lens on minimalistic wildlife and landscape photography and is a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective team. Just recently she moved into a van with her husband to take their exploration and content creation to the next level. Smith is based out of Florida and is one of the top bird photographers in the U.S. He shares his enthusiastic passion for photography through storytelling on his YouTube channel.
While these three have been to Jackson Hole before, it was a first-time experience for me. Traveling with a group who has seen it before gave the trip a little more focus. I would have likely been content in doing all the tourist traps to check a few boxes on the “everyone needs a photo of this” list (Mormon Row barns at sunrise, anyone?), but with others to pull me out of blind excitement I think we made better use of our time searching out unique opportunities.
