August 8th – 13th, the National Bighorn Sheep Center in Dubois, WY is holding its second Wind River Photographers Retreat for adventurous photographers who want to explore Wyoming and hone their photography skills and techniques. Photographers will venture through the wonderful Wind River Valley for both morning and afternoon photoshoots. Afternoons provide technique workshops e.g., Photoshop / Lightroom.
Free activities include yoga, hiking, campfire conversations, live music, and more. The Whiskey Basin Conservation Camp, where the workshops will be held, is a sprawling, early-1900 ranch tucked along a singing trout stream. Meals and cabins are included in the tuition.
Bill Sincavage and Sandy Zelasko are known for capturing images that tell complete stories. Dubois is a true mountain town, one of the last Western destinations that retains its character. Only an hour away from Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, Dubois retains its originality—you’ll see it in its wooden boardwalks and original buildings. There are no fast-food restaurants, or chains in Dubois. Instead, you’ll find friendly locals, nightly rodeos, and trout aficionados who know where to find the best cutthroat streams. There is a deep history here; petroglyphs are found along the gravel roads, and a side trip to the Wind River Reservation is totally possible for a person who wants to spend the afternoon getting to know the Shoshone and Arapaho culture.
