Moose offers a lot of different workshops from big, grand adventures to personalized one on one tutoring, from big game to the smallest rock. Our goal is pretty simple, help you make the most of YOUR photography. You can see a sample of the images taken on our workshops hear on my galleries. To learn about all the workshops we offer, here’s a quick description but call Sharon for the whole enchilada!
We are very excited to be offering All our Workshop / Adventure participants a full, one-year KelbyOne Pro Subscription (with paid registration starting July 2018). This is being made possible by our dear friends at KelbyOne, which we are incredibly grateful for. This provides you with ALL of the KelbyOne Classes (and their discounts on other products) including Moose’s Classes.
You can get an idea of some of the photos we’re able to capture while out on an Adventure heading to my Adobe MyPortfolio pages. We work hard to put your in front of interesting things in the best light.
Arizona Hummingbirds 11-16 July, 2021
Down south, southwest nearly on the border is bird paradise in the summer. And if you’re into hummingbird, you’re going to the promised land! We had to Madera Canyon to a private shooting gallery to photograph as many as eleven hummingbird species and possibly up to seventy bird species all in five days! And you do this by barely walking ten feet from your canyon. It is simply, the best!
This is a very unique Adventure. We pick you up at Tucson airport and from there we do everything but sleep together. You stay in your own person cabin a stroll from the shooting gallery and food (one might be more important than the other to you) in the gorgeous Madera Canyon. The technique we use could be considered gear intensive so view the video about photographing hummers before signing up.
The price for this Adventure is $2595 which includes all transportation once you arrive in Tucson, all meals, instruction and fun. To register, give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503 (9-5 M-F MST).

If you’ve seen any of my Kelby Training videos, Romancing the Landscape, then you know that I not only have an intimate knowledge of Monument Valley, but many who call it home are dear friends. That get’s us some amazing photo opps.

OR Coast Birds 05-10 Spet, 2021
We’re heading to the Oregon Coast 05-10 Sept, 2021 to photograph the southward shorebird migration and would love to have you join us. This is time for the forecasted peak of the birds moving south along the coast. This is also when the rarer shorebirds like Ruff and Hudsonian Godwit and Buff-breasted Sandpiper could appear. This is also when the kiddies are back in school. It’s simply the best time to be lying on the sand with the peeps having a great time with a camera! We’ll be based out of either Lincoln City or Bandon with flying into Portland, OR. The plan, spend the week lying on the sand photographing peeps :-)
You’d fly into Portland on the 5th and out on the 10th. I’m taking just four shooters and I’ll have my secret weapon, Sharon, for finding the birds. The price is $1790 which covers transportation once you arrive in Portland until you flyout of Portland, instruction, education, guide and entertainment. If you would like to join us, honored if you can, please give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503.

Alaska Moose Adventure 24-29 October 2021
Yep, Moose needs his Moose fix and YOU are invited to join me up in Alaska. It’s been three years since my last visit and I’m way overdue. We’re based out of Anchorage and everyday walk up the valley and then back out. It will hopefully be cold, perhaps damp, and most definitely spectacular!
We are there near the end of rut when the numbers of Moose are at their highest (samples of 2018 Moose Adv). We normally have forty to sixty Moose to observe and photograph. There is a hike each day of about two to four miles. You only need a 400mm lens to make images like you see above. I’m only taking four shooters (one space available) this time and if you’d like to be one of them, I’d be honored to shoot with you. The price is $1950 which includes transportation once you arrive in Anchorage until you leave, instruction, guide, and entertainment.
If you can join me, please give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503 (9-5 M-F MST).
Yellowstone Wolf, Big Game, Landscape Photographic Workshop
08-13 Nov, 2021
Our Yellowstone Wolves is an incredibly popular Adventure with 2020 being a highlight! So we’re going to offer it again this fall. While there are zero guarantees you’ll photograph wolves, we’ve not been without them yet as we explore the vast Lamar Valley. Wolves, grizzlies, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, coyote, fox, badger are just a few of the targeted critters during our week! Oh yeah, a landscape or two always seem to sneak in :-)
If you’d like to get an idea of the photos from our 2020 Adventure, you can view some of the images here (along with previous years). I work very hard to share and inspire you with my decades of biological knowledge and how to use it to get you the photograph. Come join me and six other shooters for a great week in the beauty of Yellowstone (four spots open at this time)!
We’ll be based out of Livingston, MT (flying into Bozeman, MT) and for $1900, you’ll be picked up at the airport and taken back, preworkshop packet, instruction, entertainment, and guiding is all included in the price (food, lodging, park entrance are not). If you’re up for the challenge and want to hear for yourself the most amazing sound in nature, give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503 (9-5 M-F MST). She’ll be happy to answer your questions and get you signed up. (1/2 deposit due upon registration). I look forward to shooting with you!
St Mary’s Birds 21-16 June, 2022
Far out in the Atlantic the furthest piece of North America can be found. Yep, that’s where we heading. That’s because this is where you can find one of the most amazing pelagic birds can be found, one on my list for decades of birds to photograph and places to go. The Northern Gannet. Here’s a selection of photos from our 2019 St Mary’s Adventure.
St Mary’s is a magical local where these birds with six foot wing spans that spend their entire life at sea, come to shore for a time in summer to raise the next generation. We’re talkin not one or two but forty thousand of them! I’m taking four photographers to this magical place to shoot and shoot and shoot. The price is $2300 which includes transportation once you arrive to St John, Newfoundland, instruction and more fun that you can imagine. If this somewhat hard core wildlife photography intrigues you, give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503 (9-5 M-F MST).
Australian Bird Adventure 06-13 Sept 2022
O’Reilly’s is a world-renowned birding location nestled up in Lamington Nat’l Forest of Australia. Birding and bird photography is simply beyond words here where they literally eat out of your hand! It has an elevated boardwalk taking you and your camera up into the canopy! The lodging is grand and the whole experience, well, is just so marvelous we’re going back for our third Adventure! Come on and join us!
We’re going to be there on 06-13 Sept 2022. That’s seven days of gorgeous photography (it’s an 80-400 / 500mm / 180-400 kind of bird photography, not 600mm or 800mm) I’m taking only five shooters for the seven days. Non-shooting spouses can come at no extra cost (but can’t be a part of our adventures but there is a marvelous spa). Lodging is about $150 ($29 more for spouse) a night and the meal package is $89 a day (the bar is up in the trees!). The price for instruction, guides, transportation (once at Gold Coast) is $3995. One half non-refundable deposit required at time of registration.
If you’re interested in a once in a lifetime photograph experience, give Sharon a call (who is also going back for her third time) 406. 240. 3503 (9-5 M-F MST).
We can’t advise strongly enough the need to buy trip insurance for all your adventures including those with us! It can just take the edge of booking your next trip knowing you have that in your back pocket!
