Voyageur Canoe Photography Workshop

With Ariel Estulin and the Voyageur Canoe July 29 – August 3

Part workshop, part adventure. This 5-day trip is designed for photographers of all skill level who want the experience of a canoe adventure, but also want to become better photographers. Traveling in our 36-foot craft, we’ll retrace the historic trade route of the French Canadian voyageurs. We begin our journey at Sinclair Cove and paddle northward to Michipicoten. We’ll witness some of the most rugged coastline along the Superior coast; sacred pictograph sites including Agawa Rock; camp on pristine sand beaches and make tobacco offerings along the way just as the First Nations would have done.

What am I going to learn?

By the end of the adventure you’ll have a solid foundation of photography and an understanding of what all those little knobs and dials do on your camera. You’ll know how to scout a location, pick the best spot, compose your photo, and get that amazing result. You’ll be a superstar at post-processing your images and impress your friends with your photos, all while on an incredible journey on Lake Superior. This trip is limited to 10 participants only, so you’ll receive hands-on, one-on-one photography instruction. At the end of each day we sit down to review and critique your work with an ipad. This gives you immediate feedback which is critical in the learning process.
