Beginners and seasoned photographers alike will benefit from the guidance and direction offered by our team of expert photographers, all while exploring the most scenic areas of Yellowstone. Participants can bring their own equipment or use Canon’s SLRs and lenses—all free of charge.

From August 1-7, there will be three workshops each day, hosted by a professional photographer who will lead you on a photo walk and give you some new perspectives of the park and photography. Special guest and acclaimed travel and nature photographer Darrell Gulin will be leading the photo workshops on Friday and Saturday, August 6 and 7.

The free photography programs will take place three times daily from August 1 through August 7. The workshops begin daily at 8:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Old Faithful Inn. Space is limited. Participants should arrive approximately 15–30 minutes early.

New this year, Canon and American Park Network will also offer free digital video workshops in Jackson, Wyoming on July 29 and 30.

This year’s Photography in the Parks program kicked off in Yosemite National Park and traveled to the Grand Canyon and Jackson Hole / Grand Tetons before arriving at Yellowstone. The program will wrap up in Acadia and Bar Harbor in late August.

For a detailed list of workshop dates, times and locations, along with more information about the Photography in the Parks program, visit the Canon Digital Learning Center.

And no matter where you head this summer, be sure to take lots of photos, and enter your best national park photographs into the fifth annual Canon Photography In The Parks Photo Contest.
