This old Teepee Burner takes on a whole new look when illuminated with a flashlight, head lamp, & light from a partial full moon. Gonna try some different lighting techniques this winter to see if I can make this image a little more interesting. @mark.payton.photography #teepeeburner #sawmill #woodburner #nightphotography #nightscape #lightpainting #westernmontana #lincolnmt #night_shooterz #missoulaphotographer #montanalife #montanamoment #montanagram #treasurestate #canonshooter #myrrs #canonusa #markpaytonphotography #paintingwithlight #24mmtiltshift #1dxmarkii #darkness #petzl #getlostinmontana #getoutside
Future Big Horn sheep contenders on Wild Horse Island. Captured several images of these guys this past spring. I was hoping to make it back out to the island to capture the Rams during the rut but my schedule isn’t looking to promising. @mark.payton.photography #bighornsheep #lambs #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #wildlife_vision #montanawildlife #wildhorseisland #reallyrightstuff #myrrs #westernmontana #markpaytonphotography #1dxmarkii #wildlifeonearth #montanagram #getlostinmontana #getoutside #wildandfree #wildlife_shots #canon400mm #canonwildlife
Taking time at the Montana Association of Conservation Districts convention in #billingsmt to tour the @westernheritagecenter in @downtownbillings_ ! #exploremontana #conservation #listeningandlearning #getlostinmontana
Went on an adventure yesterday, it was so nice to get out and away from it all for a bit. Life gets so busy, you can't forget to do things for yourself, it's not selfish, it's needed. #adventrue #getlostinMontana #bannack #ghosttown #history #interesting #learnsomethingnew #getoutside #getaway #cinch #bandanahair #smilebig #montanaliving #montanastolemyheart
Nothing better than spending time with my man out in the woods ♡♡ . . . . . . . #hunting #montana #406 #getlostinmontana #nature #beautifulday

Inspired by the sunset glow of the snow capped Swan Range Mountains, it’s safe to say that this is my new favorite piece. Sad to see it go, but stoked that it gets a fantastic new home! 📷 @leeshastoner #getlostinmontana #painting #acrylics #mountains #montana
Good to see this ole bull made it through the rut unscathed and in good shape for another winter. Loving the results that the Canon 80D is producing as well. I think it’s gonna make a nice addition to my wildlife photography setup 👌 @mark.payton.photography @canonusa @reallyrightstuff Canon 80D • Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS . . . #bullelk #elk #westernmontana #canon80d #busywild #400mmf28 #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlife_inspired #wildlifephotographer #markpaytonphotography #montanawildlife #wildlife_shots #wildlife_vision #biggame #montanagram #missoulaphotographer #myrrs #reallyrightstuff #400mm #getoutside #getlostinnature #getlostinmontana
Tough life in the woods, alone with wolves and moose. 🐺🦌🌲 #cabinlife #weekendinthewoods #skitrip #cosy #foxcreekcabin #hyalite #backcountryski #backpacking #tough #snow #getlostinmontana
Hard to hide in tall grass with antlers like these. This bull was more interested in getting his fill than he was in being elusive. @mark.payton.photography • Canon 80D / 400mm f/2.8 #bullelk #elk #westernmontana #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlife_vision #montanagram #montanalife #montanamoment #getlostinmontana #canon80d #400mmf28 #myrrs #bokeh #wildlifeplanet #nature #wildlife_inspired #markpaytonphotography #busywild #elkhunting

Testing out my new refurbished Canon 80D paired with the 400mm f/2.8 & the Canon EF 1.4x III Extender. This combination giving me a little extra reach with an equivalent of 896mm focal length @ f/4. Loving the extra reach & resolution; Has a pretty impressive focusing system for such an inexpensive body. The image buffering speed isn’t very impressive even with one of the fastest SD cards available.... but then I’ve been a little spoiled shooting with the 1DX. @mark.payton.photography @canonusa @reallyrightstuff #bullelk #elk #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #westernmontana #canonusa #myrrs #400mmf28 #wildlife_shots #wildlife_vision #wildlifeonearth #montanawildlife #montanagram #missoulaphotographer #ef14xiii #markpaytonphotography #getoutside #getlostinmontana
Another day, another adventure. Thankful Rosie got out of class early to join in on the adventure....and, oh yeah...we made it to Idaho! #montana #getlostinmontana #myhappyplace
Me out chasing bull Elk this afternoon and testing out my new (refurbished) Canon 80D. Photo credits go to my daughter Amber. Set her up with the 70-200mm f/2.8L paired with the Canon 80D to capture this image. Looking forward to sharing some of the wildlife images we captured with it this afternoon. @mark.payton.photography @reallyrightstuff @carhartt @sitkagear @eddiebauer @canonusa . #canon80d #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #canon400mmf28 #1dxmarkii #reallyrightstuff #eddiebauer #sitkagear #carhartt #canonusa #missoulaphotographer #70200mmf28 #400mmf28 #getoutside #getlostinmontana #montanagram #markpaytonphotography

Hunting season dreams 💫 @mark.payton.photography ・・・ Bull Elk struts his stuff as he chases his herd of cows around a small ridge. Always exhilarating to be this close to a nice bull during the rut. @mark.payton.photography Canon 1DX MK II Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS #bullelk #elk #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #wildlifephotographer #wildlifeplanet #montanamoment #montanagram #getlostinnature #getlostinmontana #missoulaphotographer #wildlife_vision #westernmontana #northwestmontana #therut #montanalife #markpaytonphotography #400mmf28 #1dxmarkii #wildlifeonearth

Just picking up a few supplies at the local shop in Belknap MT for tonight's dinner. No Lidl around here lads! . . . . . . . #coffeetime #instafood #montana #eatlocal #farmtofork #getlostinmontana #belknap #montanamoment
This place doesn't look like this anymore.... if you're interested, I made a video of my trip to GNP in September and put the link in my bio. #glaciernationalpark #elizabethlake #ptarmigantunnel #montana #montanalove #mountains #rockymountains #hiking #adventures #getlostinmontana
Election Day snowshoe to the top of snow bowl to scout the scene. First snow last night in the valley. @jer_newman I dare you to visit! #electiondaymediablackout #protectourwinters #getlostinmontana
It’s been awhile since I’ve been out to take pictures so I’ll post this old one :) #beautiful #photography #getlostinmontana #aesthetic #406
As a kid I would see old pictures and paintings of hunters floating in a canoe or boat with a deer or moose and have always wanted to hunt from the water. I was fortunate enough to make it all come together on the #missouririver this weekend with @k9kaikai and his son Tyson. Got a great mule deer and a truly epic trip. Normally we break down the animal to pack out but we toughed it out like #lewisandclark #lovethisplace . . . #sickforit #montanasportsman #sportinglife #montanahunting #mountainlife #montana #getlostinmontana #huntinglife #sitkagear #kuiunation #sitkuiuka #loweboats #mercurymarine #yellowdogflyfishing #muledeer #simmsfishing #stoneglacier #seekoutside #nicerack
Moose are surprisingly stealthy creatures for as large as they are (bulls weighing up to 1600 lbs!). We were lucky enough to spot 4 in Yellowstone yesterday, including this handsome bull. . . #moose #yellowstone #findyourpark #goparks #wildlifephotography #natgeoyourshot #wildlife_perfection #wildwest #wild #adventure #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonepledge #Montana #getlostinmontana #outdoorlife #mountainlife #naturemagic #natgeopix #natgeowildlife

Hike in sunrise from hunting this weekend! Man I missed this stuff! Awesome to get back on the mountain chasing big game! Once you start hunting and hiking on public land you gain a ton of respect for the land and the animals that live there awesome to get up in their world!! #biggamehunting #elkhunting #deerhunting #rifleseason #backcountry #publicland #sunrise #montana #montanamoment #montanapursuit #getlostinmontana #lastbestplace
The forest floor foliage covered in vibrant red and orange colors just before the western turn to gold. Always my favorite time of year and a fantastic time for outdoor portrait sessions. @mark.payton.photography #savethedate #couplessession #fallcolirs #autumn 🍁 #love #portrait #portraitsession #missoula #missoulamt #westernmontana #getoutside #getlostinmontana #montanaweddingphotographer #missoulaphotographer #markpaytonphotography #canonshooters #1dxmkii #70200mmf28 #engagementsession #couplesinlove #tyingtheknot #canonusa #canon

It’s never too late to get up and go. I am glad I figured that out. I don’t want to stay the same, therefore I get up and go. #trailrunning #altrarunning #altralonepeak4 #montana #crazymountains #moutianlife #406 #getlostinMontana #hike #nathan payme #bigskycountry #singletracks
Lost lake way back up in the woods. Perfect kind of weather for exploring 💕 #lostlake #getlostinmontana #libbymt #explore #adventureisoutthere #huntingseason #bestofthebest
Perfect day for a hike. #montana #getlostinmontana
A repost of a couple of bulls in a pre-rut challenge. I captured this back in late August of this year. Still can’t believe my luck sometimes and hoping for another opportunity to capture something like this again in the future. @mark.payton.photography Canon 1DXII Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II ISO 2000 Aperture f/2.8 Shutter 1/200sec #bullelk #elk #prerut #westernmontana #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #wildlife_shots #wildlife_vision #nature #explore #missoulaphotographer #missoula #greatfalls #bozeman #montanamoment #getlostinnature #getlostinmontana #montanagram #wildnature #rockymountains #elk101 #montanawildlife #montanawild #epicnature #canonusa #1dxmarkii #400mmf28 #markpaytonphotography #teamelk #rmef
Out watching the sun set again #beautiful #photography #getlostinmontana #aesthetic #406
I love the rain but I’m missing these warm sunny days already.... it’s going to be a long winter.
#fbf Flashback a couple years to a road trip to YNP on the last day of the year. It was one of my favorite trips into the Park. Hopefully we'll be heading in next weekend to do another last day of the year visit. #ghosttown #besttimetovisit #lastdayoftheyear #ynp #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #roadtrip #splitwindow #splitbus #roadtrip #discovertheroad #montana #getlostinmontana #indiansummer #vw #volkswagen #volkswear

🌈My DREAM is to change the world one woman - one family at a time. My vision is SO much bigger than me. I want to see moms begin to take time each day for themselves. To relax, to exercise & feed their bodies right. I wanna see women linking arms to end the obesity epidemic by teaching our kids how to live a healthy lifestyle, full of balance and fun. I truly believe it all starts in the home. That’s where our future leaders are right now. They’re learning from us how to eat, how to balance screen time & outdoor play. How to treat others, and how to take care of themselves. If we want them to be healthy in *mind * body * spirit * then we must learn to BE THE EXAMPLE, because it’s US they’re watching. I’ve heard it say “Be the change you wish to see” and that’s exactly why I’m doing what I do. I am taking a stand for myself and others like me. I won’t put myself last any longer and neither should you. I will make time to exercise, I will eat healthier foods, and I will give myself time to relax. I know my kids are paying close attention to my every move - I know it starts WITH ME🕊 ________________ #endobesity #itsabalancingact #theyarewatchingus #choosehealthy #itsuptoyou #nowisthetime #joyfulmamas #choosejoy #rippedjeans #wordtoyourmother #listentoyourmum #momsrock #fitmomsrock #itsuptoyou #youhaveachoice #thechoiceisyours #getlostinmontana #406 #floraleverything #fridayvibes #peaceout
Wildlife photography has been a recent passion / hobby of mine here lately. Someone just the other day asked if I still do portraits and weddings & the answer to that question is “YES”. Weddings and portraits are my bread & butter when it comes to making money in photography. Weddings are my primary focus followed by senior portraits, and family sessions as well. I should probably have multiple IG accounts to share different content but for now I’m just gonna keep posting random stuff and see how it goes. Here’s an image from a recent save the date session I had with this awesome couple just a couple of weeks ago near the Blackfoot river. @mark.payton.photography #savethedateinspiration #couplegoals #weddingphotographer #fallcolors 🍁🍂 #montanaweddingphotographer #fallengagementsession #portraitphotographer #missoulaphotographer #autumn 🍁 #westernmontana #canonusa #montanamoment #markpaytonphotography #montanagram #greatfallsphotographer #portraitphotography #getlostinmontana #canonshooter #lightroommobile #reddress #1dxmarkii #70200mmf28

Whenever you venture into the mountains, you need to be prepared for changing weather conditions. Even though it was warm and sunny on this side, a bit further east and the temp dropped over 10 degrees, and there was snow on the ground. • • • #flatheadriver #paolacreek #riverrocks #middleforkflatheadriver #allthecolors #montana #fallinmontana #favoritetimeofyear #dramaticskies #larch #aspen #evergreens #flatheadnationalforest #glacier #flatheadcounty #exploremore #mymontanalife #stayandwander @among_the_wild @gostaymt @visitmontana @distinctlymontana #exploremontana #getlostinmontana #406 #hometana #reflections #glacial #meltwater #GlacierMT
