YELLOW DOG FLYFISHING + PHOTO WORKSHOPS
Fish . Photo . Travel
US WEST: Aug 2017 + CUBA: Oct 2017 + BELIZE: June 2018
Join Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures for a hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop in 2017. We have a great line-up of instructors this year, making it a great opportunity to travel with us to Belize, Idaho or Cuba! This immersive workshop will be led by our highly accomplished team of adventure angling photographers. The school includes daily classes, in-the-field instruction, field trips, and all lodging and meals!
The idea for the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures on-the-water photo workshop was to create a hands on workshop that is taught by working professionals who specialize in adventure angling. We constructed a learning experience built around real time scenarios. Let’s face it: the light is rarely perfect when you finally catch the fish of a lifetime or finally take that once in a lifetime trip. Everyone wants to come home with those special moments. With this in mind, we created a curriculum that provides you with the necessary tools to create great images! The detailed instructional lesson plan is directly applied from the classroom into the field. Each participant has the help of an instructor with almost every shot. It’s a great educational experience for all levels.
Who Should Attend:
Everyone! Whether you just purchased your first camera and are wondering what all those buttons are for or you’re a seasoned amateur to intermediate photographer wanting to make the most of your fishing and travel photography, this workshop will advance your skill level and improve your photos in the field. With three working professional photographers instructing, we’re able (and happy) to teach and accommodate photographers of any skill level. The diversity of instruction and a curriculum designed specifically for outdoor, travel and fishing photography, this workshop will help you to “up your game” and make the most of your future fishing trips.

“My photography has improved as a result and I have had fun putting all that I learned to work. I don’t think my camera has been out of ‘manual’ mode since the trip. I can sight numerous times since the workshop that I have been getting ready to take a picture and remember something that you guys taught me. I feel so much more confident when selecting depth of field, balancing that with the shutter speed, and adjusting ISO to get what I want. Thank you again!”

“The workshop was so amazing that it’s hard to come up with anything that you could do better.”
