  • Fall is one of the best times to photograph and adventure in Jackson, Wyoming. Temperatures start to become more moderate and fall colors make for a vibrant backdrop.

  • Workshop constructed for the beginner/intermediate photographer with opportunities to focus on lifestyle, portrait, and night photography.

  • Post-processing/image critique session and access to a three pack of Elise’s Lightroom Presets to help understand how different looks are achieved.

  • Build relationships through a unique experience over shared hobbies.

  • Small group size (6) to maximize individual attention.

  • All food and transportation during the workshop will be taken care of.

  • As a personal goal, Elise would like to not only play the role of workshop host, but also do her best to document your experience to leave you with images of yourself that you can be excited about.

  • Each attendee will receive a Mammut Trion Pro 35 + 7L Backpacking Pack, Mammut Alvra T-shirt, and Mammut Lhasa Cap.



The itinerary is kept somewhat flexible so we can adjust for weather and group interests. The itinerary below is just an example of what you can expect.

Day 1 (Saturday, Sept. 29):

  • Meet in Jackson at 12:00pm. We’ll head out together from here for a scenic introductory day hike.

Day 2 (Sunday, Sept. 30):

  • Wake up early to shoot sunrise followed by a camp breakfast.

  • Day hike to Peaked Mountain after riding the chair lift to the top of Grand Targhee Resort.

  • Stay the night in the Lodge Family Suite at Cowboy Village Resort. We’ll spend some time here doing a group edit/image critique session.

Day 3 (Monday, Oct. 1):  

  • After a leisurely morning, head to a scenic location for portrait sessions. Each person will have the chance to have their portrait taken as well as practice on other participants. We’ll spend the remainder of the afternoon chasing fall colors.
