The Ultimate Glacier National Park Photography Workshop



  • September 14-18


For nearly 20 straight years, Glacier National Park was my favorite place on earth to photograph grand, epic landscape.

This 5 day workshop of some of the absolutely best locations in Glacier Park during the most exciting time of the year, FALL when this location takes on a very special quality.

In the Fall the crowds are gone and fall colors are kicking into glowing hues. Weather is its usual transitional/inclement allowing for opportunities of epic transitional light, and who knows, maybe even a dusting of snow on the majestic mountain peaks!

"I’ve had the opportunity to join Mark on both a group (Patagonia), 2 private (Southwest) workshops and The Ultimate Southwest Workshop. If your goal is to stretch beyond your comfort zone, to see (and photograph) locations that are a bit out of the ordinary or if you just want to become a better photographer – I can’t recommend Mark any higher! His passion and dedication to his “job” has no limit – and makes the entire experience thoroughly enjoyable. Mark has the ability to provide whatever level of assistance you need – without being overbearing or condescending. A truly great time which has me looking at the calendar to book another adventure!" - Todd Miller
