Montana Fly Fishing Photography 101 Workshop

Posted on June 07 2016

Want to hone your photog skills?  Photographer Jess McGlothlin and The Tackle Shop in Ennis, Montana are teaming up to offer several summer day long courses to give you more confidence behind the camera.

I've been following Jess for a few years now and have always been impressed with her photography perspective.  Truth told, I could use one of these classes myself. 

From the presser that Jess McGlothlin sent...

Wondering how to pack for a shoot? Does shooting in low light throw you for a loop? Plagued by worry when you're shooting on the water? Constantly wishing your fish images had more "punch"? Join photographer Jess McGlothlin at The Tackle Shop in Ennis, Montana, for a day of instruction and fishing. We’ll spend the day on the water, honing your photography skills while enjoying some prime Montana fishing.
