about us

In addition to All Things Wild, her guiding company, Kate owns her photography company and brand, Kate Ochsman Photography. Her photography has been published online and in print, and she donates her wildlife prints to raise money for Nonprofit organizations in her community and abroad.

Since 2017, Kate has guided groups and individuals in Yellowstone National Park, throughout South Africa, Namibia, Brazil, the San Juan Islands and Alaska. She has been a contributing photographer for Prints for Wildlife in 2021 and 2022, with her donated images, alongside those of the best wildlife photographers in the world, helped to raise $2.2 million for African Parks Network. In the summer of 2022, she worked as a conservation photographer for the Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative in Jackson, Wyoming. She creates and hosts her own multi-day photography workshops for Yellowstone Forever, the official NonProfit Partner of Yellowstone National Park.

Kate has worked and guided locally and abroad with various high-end Tour Companies. Since 2018, Kate has served as the Project Leader for Youth 4 African Wildlife NPC, a South African based conservation internship that brings worldwide, college-aged interns into the African bush and teaches them current conservation issues, photography, storytelling, leadership skills and how to actually make a difference. In addition to her guiding, Kate travels the world privately for her own photography and art.  

Kate brings a passionate level of photographic and post-processing expertise, knowledge of fine art wildlife photography, conservation insight, global experience, photo contest perspective, luxury, fun, wonder and heart to all of her tours. All Things Wild combines Old World elegance with the raw, newness of the mountainous New World. 

Bush luxury, why not have a premier experience in Nature and connect with All Things Wild?

All Things Wild offers luxurious, bespoke wildlife photography tours in Yellowstone and abroad. No two tours are the same, as our adventure is all about you, your interests and your photographic goals.

We operate in Yellowstone during the FALL and WINTER ONLY, as they are the most sensational and stunning times in Yellowstone fir fine art wildlife photography (September - February).

We are South African based during the spring and summer months (March - September).

We welcome and can teach all levels of photography from getting you off of automatic settings all the way to aiding in positioning, local insight and wildlife behavior for the professional photographer seeking a particular shot. All Thing Wild tours and expeditions are led by award-winning, international wildlife photographer, and All Things Wild Owner, Kate Ochsman. Kate loves working with you to co-create your perfect trip, and to help you make the wildlife photography images of your dreams.

All Things Wild is a one woman operated and owned business based in Gardiner, Montana, the Northwest entrance to Yellowstone National Park. After years of working in the Southern African Safari Business, Kate created her ideal company here in America. Blending cross-continental elements such as the splendid charm of bush luxury, an emphasis on beauty, gourmet food and coffee, premier photographic instruction, a deep knowledge of wildlife and conservation issues, Kate offers a truly unique and unparalleled experience in Yellowstone. 

We aim to ensure that you feel special on your bespoke tour, that you have the chance to slow down and connect with nature, that you make stunning images, and that you learn more about photography and wildlife. In addition, All Things Wild works locally as an outfitter for international photographic tour companies, and we run our International tours through our global partner companies. 
Our mission is to help you fall in love with all things wild through a deepened connection with our natural world and your valuable place within it.
