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 here 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.
Plymouth Birds 14-19 Aug, 2022
One of the great migration fallouts on the eastern flyway is Duxbury Bays / Plymouth Beach, MA. We’re talking over 60 species of birds including many rarities. It is one of the great bird locals in North America! Terns and shorebirds, waterfowl and herons nesting and fallout from the tundra fuel up on the beaches and marshes, it’s a hidden treasure that’s slowly fading away. I’ve long wanted to spend a summer’s day laying on the beach photographing these LBJs.
I’m taking five shooters along on this great bird photography adventure and want to invite you to join us! The price is $1995 which includes transportation from and back to the airport, instruction and entertainment. I would love to have you join me!
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).
Alaska Moose Adventure 25-30 Sept 2022
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 Fall Safari 17-22 Oct ’22
The air has got that something special, a nip, excitement, anticipation, nervousness about it. The critters are on the move, predators on the hunt as they work towards building their fat reserves. Their pelts are already filled out as they explore the landscape looking for that next meal. Some like the Bison, Elk, and Pronghorn are in full rut challenging each other. Bighorn Sheep are coming down from their summer range and moving towards the lower, winter range where there will be less snow. The trees are in their fall splendor and the thermals show their might in the chilled air as their steam heads for the heavens. Yellowstone in fall is a magical place and I want to share it with you for your camera to capture. Come, join me!
I’ll be taking just FIVE shooters with me as we explore the entire park (one road might be closed already) 17-22 Oct, 2022. The price is $2250 which includes transportation once you land in Bozeman, MT the entire week and back to Bozeman. It also includes guide, instruction and entertainment. It does not include food or lodging. If you’d like to join us for a fantastic time in a gorgeous locale, give Sharon a call 406. 240. 3503!
Yellowstone Wolf, Big Game, Landscape Photographic Workshop
13-18 Nov, 2022
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 :-)
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. 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!
FL Gulf Bird Adventure
12-17 Feb, 2023
We’ll be highlighting shorebirds, waterfowl and fingers crossed, a morning boat trip to the Roseatte Spoonbill rockery. Many species will be nesting like the spoonbills, GBH & Wood Storkes and all will be on our target list of stops. We’ll go from lying on the beach having fun with Oystercatches and Skimmers, sandpipers to cypress forests with Pileated Woodpeckers and Owls. There are over eighty species of birds and we’re going to try to at the very least, see them all!
The price is $2350 which includes all transportation once you land in Tampa, Tampa Bay Boat Tour, instruction and entertainment. We’d love to have you join us. I’m limited to just 5 shooters (could be just 4). If you can be one of those, please give my 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!
05-10 March, 2023
When the heavens dance, ya simply gotta howl! Northern Lights are just cool, unpredictable and an experience you all must enjoy at least once in your life and I hope I can be your guide. I’m heading back to Fairbanks for a week of northern exposure and fun. We spend the daylight hours we have exploring and scouting. We look for critters like Moose and Alaska-cona while finding locales for the evening show. Once it’s dark and the lights come out, we’re out photographing them as long as they last. I would love to share this with four shooters and the price is $2250
If you would like to join me in the field for this Adventures or any others, please give the lovely Ms Sharon a jingle at 406. 240. 3503
19-24 March, 2023
The fact that we saw 48 species of birds in our four days is only a small indication of how amazing the area is. Even I got a new lifer on the trip. The fact that one shooter shot 45k in nine hours speaks of it as well (along with he was shooting with a Z 9). Florida’s Snail Kites are an amazing bird. We had such fantastic shooting with them, it’s truly beyond verbal description. I want you to experience the same thing! I have secured an airboat to take us out for 3 hours each morning (wx permitting) to photograph these incredibly cool birds. This is a Mutual of Omaha kinda adventure where we’ll be on an airboat with Cpt Mark going out to see and photograph for ourselves the amazing life on the Everglades.
The price is $2900 which covers the airboat, instruction and transportation once you arrive in Orlandi, FL. There is room for four shooters on the boat. If you would like to join me in the field for this Adventures or any others, please give the lovely Ms Sharon a jingle at 406. 240. 3503
Bolivar Flats, TX
09-14 April 2023
Bolivar Flats is to spring migrating shorebirds as Magee Marsh is to spring migrating warblers! Located in TX, the shores that make up Bolivar Flats has historically been a major stopover for shorebirds heading to the arctic to breed. Along with gulls, terns and pelicans, thousand upon thousands of birds, a hundred variety with many rare visitors make land fall at Bolivar Flats first right after flying over the gulf. It’s a magical area that’s been at the top of my list to see and photograph.
The dates are 09-14 April, 2023. You’d fly in and out Houston (IAH) (in the 9th, out the 14th). We’ll be based out of the Galveston area and hitting the beaches of Bolivar Flats (yep, this is a lying in the sand kind of adventure). The price is $2150 which includes transportation once you land at IAH until your return flight, instruction, and entertainment.
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 $2750 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).
We can’t advise strongly enough the need to buy trip insurance (read our cancellation policy) 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!
