The Great North Idaho Waterfall Workshop

Explore between 12 and 16 North Idaho Waterfalls in this intense three day workshop!

Friday, September 25th to Sunday, September 27th, 2020

North Idaho is known for its rugged beauty, remote stretches of densely forested mountains, and the freedom to explore virtually anywhere.


  North Idaho is less known for its plethora of waterfalls compared to the number of lakes and forests that attract locals and tourists alike.  There are of course a small hand full of popular waterfalls, but there are dozens of remote, virtually unheard of waterfalls in and around the vast back-country of this relatively small geographic area.  

Join professional outdoor photographer Chris Celentano on the type of adventure he is known for; a good old fashioned waterfall hunt in the mountains of North Idaho!

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.  This is your chance to see many of the stunning waterfalls Chris has spent years hunting and documenting, all in one weekend. 


Take advantage of Chris' unique eye for capturing the stunning beauty of some of North Idaho's most precious treasures on this all encompassing, multi-day waterfall adventure.  Not only will you be able to see over a dozen different waterfalls, but you will also get to see some of the most stunning back-country vistas the area has to offer.  

Each day will begin and end at an off-the-beaten path camp site.  Participants will be able to share their work and experiences with each other. There may be some opportunities for astrophotography and light painting if everyone is up to it as well.  To top it all off,  delicious gourmet food will be served up for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to make sure everyone stays fueled up throughout the trip!
