Lighting Creek, Idaho

Explore the wettest drainage in the State of Idaho along the southern reaches of the Cabinet Mountain Range during this exciting and adventure filled workshop!

Sunday, December 8th, 2019

Lightning Creek is a wild, rugged, and fast flowing creek that runs from deep inside the Cabinet Mountains down a steep sided canyon and ultimately ends up in the Clark Fork River near the mouth of Lake Pend Oreille.  What makes Lightning Creek so incredible is the glacial blue colored water tumbling over granite boulders between cedar lined banks, and with towering craggy peaks and ridges overhead.  When the cold weather hits, the hoarfrost and ice formations around the rocks make for absolutely incredible subjects and foregrounds.  Add a dusting of snow among the moss and ferns on the ground and you have a recipe for pure magic!

Take your photography to the next level

This workshop is your chance to capture stunning images that you can be truly proud of while getting one-on-one instruction and guidance from professional outdoor photographer Chris Celentano.  Explore some of the most remote country in North Idaho while also learning how to take your images to the next level.  Whether you are a beginner just picking up a DSLR or mirrorless camera for the first time, or a seasoned expert, there is something for everyone in this workshop. Not only will we be covering landscape and nature photography, we will also be covering some Outdoor Adventure photography; adding the human element to unique compositions will take your images even further.  This is your chance to learn how to make your audience feel like they are apart of the action or scene through your photos
