Idaho Cowboy Workshop November 3rd - 8th 2018

We're not sure what more we can say about beautiful Sandpoint Idaho, the location of our Idaho Cowboy Photography Workshop. Sandpoint's rugged mountains, dense forests and wide rivers are more beautiful than you can imagine. This workshop is a dynamic and authentic Western experience that you will never forget.

We will start our all inclusive workshop in Spokane Saturday November 3rd. (meals and lodging are included, except for alcohol) where we will have a meet and greet dinner at a local restaurant to discuss the next mornings shoot and a brief overview of the workshop. After Sunday mornings shoot we will drive north to Sandpoint and our guest ranch.

The moment you set foot at the ranch you will be greated by warm western hospitality. The ranch is a true testiment to the hardworking cowboys and cowgirls that are still getting it done the traditional way. Late Autumn is when the larch is turning yellow amongst the tall pines providing us with stunning backdrops.

As we immerse ourselves in the traditions of the Old West, photographing cowboys at work, horses, and cattle. You will learn how to push light to it's limit and embrace the iconic elements of the American West. Here you'll find yourself shooting in the thick of the action and capturing breathtaking sunrises and sunsets in this gorgeous private and remote setting.  We will study natural light, learn intimate portraiture and the elements of strong visual storytelling. You discover ways to be ready when the unexpected unfolds in front of you and develop your own strengths and style in a way you may never have imagined. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to experience the western way of life.
