Amateur and professional photographers are again being invited to share some of their favorite images of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem during the Annual Fall Photo Festival, cosponsored by the National Park Service and the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center.  Organizer Rich Jehle says the event is in its 11th year and is growing every year.  Jehle says, “We tend to get a mix of professional photographers and amateurs, and every single one that we’ve done has been different from every other one – it’s just amazing the talent that’s out there.” Jehle says there are always photographers form Jackson who participate.  He points out that the festival is not a contest, and no prizes are awarded.  Rather, it provides an opportunity for both amateur and professional photographers to gather together in person to and spend no more than 5 minutes narrating up to 25 of their favorite digital images with others who share their passion for photography. Jehle says the event is also very popular for those wanting to view the photos and hear the photographers’ stories – but he says seating is limited.  He says the festival was originally held at the Madison Junction amphitheater outdoors which could accommodate up to 300 people; but it is outdoors and he says the weather this time of year can be marginal. Consequently, they opted to move it indoors.  The room at the visitor center, however will hold about only 70 people. The event will be held Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm in the Community Room of the West Yellowstone Visitor Information Center.  Jehle says he would like those interested in showing their work to contact him by Monday.
