There's the possibility of a trip to the park but my fellow travel ain't a camper (a baaad start if you ask me, but I thought I'd ask just the same!)
Since back packing isn't in the cards:( are there photo opportunities close to the road at GTNP?

Have twice stayed with my family at Colter Bay in the cabins, and really liked them both times. Somewhat rustic, which I liked.

Plenty of photo opportunities not far from the road - even from the road. I think GTNP is far more scenic than nearby Yellowstone, but if you are going to GTNP you might as well see both.

If you can get a good home equity loan ( :) ), stay at the Jackson Lake Lodge.

Yellowstone is utterly amazing, but the Tetons are transcendent--from the Jackson Hole/Jackson Lake side. 25 miles apart on the Rockefeller Parkway.

There's a smallish place nearby - http://www.firesidejacksonhole.com - that has cabins as well as an RV park. You'll have to decide if the cost is within your budget - it seems high to me, but the area isn't exactly cheap. We stayed at the RV park (with a rented trailer through RVShare) a couple of weeks ago. The wifi is great (can't say that about the KOA at West Yellowstone) and it's run by a family; very friendly. Within easy walking distance, there are two restaurants - one Italian, one ?BBQ? The latter wasn't open yet when we were there, but the Italian place was really good. The fireside is a few miles outside of Jackson and it's an easy drive from it into the park. There are definitely plenty of shots without walking more than 50 yards from the car.
