Reflecting back on the first workshop, Yellow Dog Director of Photography Bryan Gregson noted, “This past October we launched the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures Photo Workshop series. This program focuses on fishing, travel and photography. For our first stop we chose Belize as it's an easy location to gets to, has amazing scenery with a variety of opportunities to photograph. We teamed up with the folks at El Pescador Lodge, who took great care of our large group. We held daily presentations with cold beers and great tasting local finger food. A jam-packed itinerary followed a very detailed course curriculum that incorporated fun daily field assignments. It was exciting to see the progression of the participants each day as we toured the towns, snorkeled in the reserve and fished the famed Savannah flats. The weather was dramatic at times and only a few of us somehow dodged the downpour. All in all it was a great experience and a huge success. This is the first of many and I am looking forward to the upcoming 2017 lineup.”

Student Andy T. commented, “The workshop was so amazing that it's hard to come up with anything that you could do better.”

For instructor Jess McGlothlin, it was an intensive week of teaching both fly-fishing photography and overall travel photography. “We were lucky to have a fantastic group, and stayed busy with fishing, catamaran rides, snorkeling, exploring local towns, classroom sessions (complete with ceviche and Belikins) and evening reviews,” she noted. “From working on how to best position a fish for photos while on the boat, to shooting with challenging shadows and bright lighting in the nearby town of San Pedro, we worked on how to maximize your time behind the camera. El Pescador, as always, proved to be a home away from home and took excellent care of everyone. I’m excited to watch this program grow in 2017 and beyond!"

Instructor Jim Klug commented, "For years we’ve had clients ask about photography schools and programs, so we were naturally thrilled to be able to launch the Yellow Dog Photo Schools program in 2016. The feedback and comments that we received from the Belize school that was held in October of 2016 were all fantastic. There is no doubt that there is a demand for photo workshops that combine a great curriculum with fun fishing, interesting locations and knowledgeable instructors. We’re excited about the 2017 and 2018 line-ups for dates and locations, and we fully expect that this program will only continue to grow.”

"First, thank you so much for the wonderful trip to Belize.  I learned so much from each of you. I really appreciated the opportunity that I had to spend a day with each of you. 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 cite 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!" Student Tony S. shared after the Belize workshop.
