The scenic wonder of Idaho portrayed in professional landscape images.

Idaho Landscape Photography Workshops and Tours

About Photography Workshops and Tours

All workshops and/or tours are fitting for any skill level or camera equipment and most fitness levels.  While we do photograph all day long, there is little actual hiking involved and it is usually optional.

Beyond landscape composition, most instruction is geared towards the use of a DSLR or mirror-less camera, and a tripod is required.

Overall class size is small to offer individualized instruction and space for each student to work.

Idaho Scenic Images is insured and carries the permits required for its workshops.

2022 Idaho Workshop & Tour Schedule

Snowcapped Peaks and Autumn Color

Oct. 5th-9th, 2022

From rivers lined with golden cottonwood trees, high mountain aspen, alpine lakes to snowcapped peaks.  Timed to coincide perfectly with the full moon and autumn colors, we'll visit a waterfall, a ghost town and maybe photograph some wild horses if we're lucky.  We'll practice creating sun stars,  silky waters,  bracketing for high dynamic range and learn to recognize elements of a successful photograph.

Classroom instruction includes:

"Creating Compelling Compositions" 

"Tuning in to the Light"

"Previsualization in Photography"

"Creating HDR images without the typical HDR "look".

This landscape photography workshop/tour takes place over 5 days and 4 nights. We are based in Challis for the first 2 nights then we move north to Salmon for the 3rd and 4th nights.

Guided Idaho Scenic Drives Book Tours

Join one or both book authors/photographers (Linda and Shari) as we follow selected book routes and offer photo tips and techniques. These day tours will vary in length and most will begin and end in the same location allowing for optional car pooling.  Any type of camera or photography skill level is welcome. Or just come for the ride! Each guided tour requires a minimum or 5 participants and will not exceed a maximum of 8. 

Route 47- Owyhee Foothills and Leslie Gulch

While this tour dips into Oregon, the rock formations along this route just can't be missed. We'll watch sunrise in the Owyhee Foothills, see some old buildings, take a short hike to a desert plunge waterfall, and hope for some desert wildflowers.  Bring a lunch and hiking shoes.  Any chance of rain will cancel this trip. Plan for a bumpy and potentially dusty ride.

April 21st, 2022- Leaving Homedale at 6am                                                                                            $119.00

Returning around 3pm


Routes 44 and 46- Owyhee Backcountry and the Boise Mountains

We've combined the best of these two routes  into a one day tour. After a 1/4 mile hike with a short uphill at the end, view the unique oolite formations at sunrise. Continue exploring the Backcountry Byway then finish with canyon views and wildflowers overlooking the South Fork of the Boise River as evening sun lights the Boise Mountains. Bring a headlamp and lunch. We'll grab an early dinner (not included) before heading into the Boise Mountains.

April 22, 2022- Leaving Boise Stage Stop at 5:45 am                                                                           $159.00

Follow portions of the California Trail through the City of Rocks then travel the high country through the South Hills, visit Ross Falls (a short hike) and explore Rock Creek Canyon. Bring your hiking shoes and pack a lunch.

June 2nd, 2022- Leaving Burley at 5:00 am                                                                                               $159.00

Ending at Twin Falls around 7 pm


Routes 34, 35 and 38- Little City of Rocks and the Centennial Marsh 

We combine elements of 3 book routes into this full day in South Central Idaho.  We watch sunrise in the Little City of Rocks, then visit barns and old houses scattered across the Camas Prairie. We'll climb into the Soldier Mountains for more views, and grab lunch and dinner(not included) along the way. With a little luck we'll enjoy some time in fields of lupine. 

Very little physical exertion is required on this tour. You may want boots for the marsh and you'll definitely want bug spray.
