Fish . Photo . Travel

Join Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures for a hands-on, adventure-filled outdoor and fishing photography workshop in 2019. We have a great line-up of instructors this year, making it a great opportunity to travel with us to Cuba and Belize! 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 the 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.

Participant Testimonials

“My photography has improved as a result of the Yellow Dog photo schools, and I have had fun putting all that I learned to work with my images. I don’t think my camera has been out of ‘manual’ mode since the school! I feel so much more confident when selecting depth of field, balancing that with the shutter speed, composing images and adjusting the ISO to get the shots that I want.”
– Tony S. (Texas)

“The workshop was so amazing that it’s hard to come up with anything that could have been done better. Highly recommended!”
– Andy T. (New York)

“World class photography instructors working with you side by side – from camera set-up, to on-location shooting, to editing. My 16-year old son and I took this workshop together and it was one of the best experiences we’ve shared. I would highly recommend that you bring the person you fish and or travel with the most.”
– Art M. (Gainesville, FL)

“There is no better way to learn the secrets to better images than an intensive, full immersion program in the field. Yellow Dog’s team of personable and fun professionals helps to give shooting advice all throughout the week, creating a truly dynamic experience. Don’t question the money spent. Simply do it, and your photography skills will leap forward.”
– Kim B. (Bend, OR)
