Photography Western Montana is Picture Perfect

Western Montana is Picture Perfect

It’s hard not to see a photo in every direction when you’re in Montana, an infinite gallery regardless of the season—the sunlight-filtered golds of autumn aspens, pure white snow against bluebird skies, wildflower-filled meadows in the springtime and summer’s sparkling waters. Western Montana is a photographer’s paradise, with panoramic vistas, scenic overlooks, lake sunsets, stoic wildlife and the jagged peaks and sweeping valleys of Glacier National Park—a travel photographers dream. We even have a photography school right here in Missoula, where nature nurtures the craft.

Wander Your Way Through the Beauty of Whitefish

From the warmth of a welcoming town to the endless mountains, forests, lakes and rivers of Glacier National Park, your fall escape awaits.
