  • Glacier National Park, Triple D Game Ranch & National Bison Range

    Glacier National Park is a well known destination for photographers offering stunning landscapes, water, and macro photographic opportunities.  What is not so well know is it's also a fantastic location for getting once in a lifetime shots of Grizzly Bear, Wolves, Mountain Lion, Fox (three varieties), Bobcat and Lynx.

    It’s an adventure that will leave you with lasting memories and plenty of pictures to commemorate the experience.

    Next year the GNPA is offering 14 lucky photographers the opportunity to photograph Glacier and wildlife. There are two dates, each limited to 7 photographers:

    Group 1:  September 9 to September 17, 2017

    Group 2:  September 13 to September 21, 2017

    Whether you are looking to photograph beautiful white snow-capped mountains, the zigzag patterns of split rail fences, lake reflections, wildlife or colorful aspen groves, this small and personal tour has a little bit of everything for you.

    The month of September provides beautiful weather, and you will enjoy the crisp cool mornings and the rugged beauty of the mountains. The beautiful golden Aspens together with the colorful underbrush provide stunning foreground focal points to capture the beauty of the region.

    Each day we will plan a sunrise shot, morning photography, mid-day break, afternoon photography and sunset shots.

    The Triple D Game Ranch is considered one of the premiere captive wildlife photographic operations in North America and is often used by the biggest names in video and wildlife photography to get realistic shots of animals in native habitat.  There, you'll shoot animals in fall colors, up close and in best light. 

    All animals are photographed in natural settings (in the forest, on rocks and near ponds).  Eight animal sessions are included in the photo shoot.  They include the following:  Grizzly Bear, Wolves, Mountain Lion, Fox (three varieties), Bobcat and Lynx. Additional animals available at extra cost each. Refer to their website for more information:

    Leaders: Mary Jo Cox and Stewart Roach

    Maximum of 7 in each group plus one leader.

    Cost for each member is $1,239.00.  Nonrefundable deposit of $300. Balance of $939 due by July 1, 2017.  No refunds after July 1 unless a replacement is found. In that case you will receive a refund of all your fees, including the deposit, less a $150 transfer fee.

    Remember this does not cover any transportation, lodging, car rental, food or beverages which are your responsibility.

    Mary Jo Cox will lead first group. 

    Stewart Roach will lead second group.  

    Both will lead in Glacier together.

    You must be a current GNPA Member to attend.
