Redfish Lake / Stanley - IDAHO / Workshop

September 23-27, 2024


Experience the dark skies reserve of Central Idaho, capturing the depth of the Milky Way through astrophotography at night. During the day, the Sawtooth range provides a multitude of possibilities for memorable landscapes. Redfish Lake and Stanley, Idaho provide the setting for this photographic journey.

Enter into a vast playground where mornings refresh and welcome you with a crisp autumn breath of mountain air. Rising from the valley floor, the Sawtooth range scrapes the sky with its craggy, jagged peaks. Here you will rediscover the artist, the poet, and perhaps the adventurer within you that finds oneself beckoned to grasp the indescribable majestic presence of a land full of memory.

Immerse yourself into the landscapes of the Sawtooth range in Central Idaho. Here, you'll find an adventure worth the journey!

Exploring the surrounding landscapes held together by mountain, rivers and lakes – you’ll come to see why we never tire of returning to Redfish Lake, Stanley, Idaho, the Sawtooth range and the Salmon River that winds through these canyon walls.

Meander down a creek side stream, swollen with brisk mountain water, capturing moment after moment of a beauty that reminds us to slow down and treasure what is right before our eyes. Stop in for breakfast at one of the best bakeries you’ll ever enjoy. Gather around the table with others who cherish capturing moments in time, learning from one another as well as our dedicated instructors. This photo tour is filled with beautiful mountain vistas, capturing the Sawtooths, Stanley Lake, Redfish Lake and Little Redfish.

Join us this Fall as we transport you through the very best landscape, macro and astro photographic opportunities in the Northwest at Redfish Lake Lodge, Redfish, Idaho on a photo tour you will never forget.
