About All-Encompassing Trip

“The world’s big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.”

—John Muir

I’m Guillermo Esteves, a web developer and photographer based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Shoshone-Bannock, Eastern Shoshone, and Cheyenne land. All-Encompassing Trip is where I publish most of my photography work, which consists primarily of black & white wildlife and landscape photography in and around Grand Teton National Park and other national parks.

Statement of ethics

I strive to minimize the environmental impact of my work by considering the potential ecological ramifications of publishing my photos, and of the equipment, processes, and techniques I use to make them. I follow Leave No Trace principles at all times, abide by all applicable laws and regulations for the locations and parks I visit, and avoid, to the best of my abilities, causing any damage to natural and cultural resources. All my wildlife photography is made in the wild, without baiting, and attempting to disrupt my subjects as little as possible, without engaging in behaviors that endanger them, myself, or others.

Recognition & press

One of my photographs, Close Encounter at Antelope Flats, was chosen in 2021 as one of four highly commended photos in London’s Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year, People’s Choice Awards. Some of my work has also been featured in the BBC, the Jackson Hole News & Guide, Jackson Hole Magazine, and the May 2021 issue of GEO Magazine.

Elsewhere on the web

I usually publish new photographs once a day, every day; if you want to see them as soon as they’re published, the easiest way is to subscribe to the feed in your favorite news reader. You can also follow me on Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr, and Mastodon.

You can also get push notifications when new photos are published by checking the box at the very bottom of this page. (On iPhones and iPads, you’ll need to add this website to your home screen to be able to subscribe to the notifications.)

About the site

All-Encompassing Trip is powered by Denali, a custom Rails-based photoblogging app I created because I wasn’t happy with any of the existing alternatives for photography websites. It’s hosted on Heroku, and the photos are processed and served by Thumbor. The text is set in Lato, provided by Google Fonts. The logo was designed by Anchor Supply. Information about the native lands each photograph was made in is provided by the Native Land Digital API.

The name of the site, All-Encompassing Trip, references a lyric from one of my favorite songs from my all-time favorite band.
