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.

The Peak of Adventure

Yellowstone is more than a park. In Montana, it’s a whole country—an entire ecosystem that doesn’t stop where the park ends. Venture north of the park and find the Yellowstone adventure you had in mind.
