Wind River Range Horseback Photography Workshop

August 22 - 25th, 2019  |  Cost: $2,900 *inclusive  - $550 deposit

4 days, 1 night at the ranch, 2 nights in the Winds

The Wind River Range in Wyoming is a stunning area that is only accessibly by foot (or horseback!), home to towering granite peaks and alpine lakes. We will explore the rugged wilderness on horseback and shoot beautiful remote locations that are rarely photographed. Evenings will be spent around the fire eating great food and sleeping in tents.  There will be some hiking but nothing too strenuous as we will cover long distances on horseback. This is an incredible opportunity to photograph an area that normally takes miles and miles of hiking with tons of gear on your back to get to, without the work or planning.

Experience 

Beginner - Advanced 

Both beginners & experienced photographers will benefit from this workshop. I will work closely with you to address  strengths and weaknesses. All can expect to be challenged.

Endurance 

Somewhat Challenging

No riding experience needed but you should be comfortable sitting on a horse for several hours at a time (You also have the option of walking and riding to break it up.)  We may hike up to 1-2 miles while scouting for images. 

Terrain

Waterfalls, Peaks, Lakes

We will be high in the mountains of the Wind River Range, shooting the towering granite peaks, alpine lakes, streams and waterfalls. Expect it to get chilly at night and warm during the day.

Group Size

7 people

I prefer to keep workshops small, ensuring that each person will have ample time for one-on-one instruction. This photography workshop is limited to 7 people. 

A PHOTOGRAPHER'S PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

 Pristine Wilderness • Individual Photo Instruction • Meals around the Campfire • Expert Guides

DEEP IN THE WILDERNESS 

We will be camping in Lizard Heard Meadows near Cirque of the Towers. This is a remote area you can only get to by foot or horseback. And while it takes several days on foot, we will cover about 14 miles on horseback in just one day - plus time to spare to shoot sunset! 

All of the fun. None of the work.

A local ranch will be guiding us into the Wind River Range. Their team will prepare wonderful meals, tend camp and wrangle horses for us while we focus on creating amazing images! So we get to enjoy all of the benefits of camping in the wilderness with zero of the stress.
