These workshops are open to photographers of all levels. However, you do not have to be a serious photographer to attend most of the workshops. Although many professional and serious amateur photographers participate, the workshops also attract artists in quest of photos for reference material, and some who come simply for their love of horses and the opportunity to witness them in the wild and/or to experience the Western landscape and other wildlife. No matter what your purpose for joining us, trailing wild horses is a unique adventure with dramatic scenery along the way.
Depending on the length of the workshop and date, this year’s New Mexico locations may include one, or a combination of the following locations: Jicarilla Wild Horse Territory in the Carson National Forest, Placitas Free-Roaming Horses & Landscapes, Cimarron Sky-Dog Reserve, Monero Mustangs. Also check out the Wild Horses and Spanish Steeds workshop which includes the spectacular Peruvian Paso horses of La Estancia Alegre.
This year’s popular Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Workshop in Montana/Wyoming is scheduled for June 27-30.
Minimal to moderate hiking involved. If you are a photographer, you should be technically comfortable with your equipment prior to attending a workshop. Because participants have varying levels of experience, photo instruction will be in the field, as needed. There is image review in every workshop, however emphasis is placed on the unique photo opportunties. The two to four-day workshops offering more time for post-production work. Groups are purposely kept small to ensure an intimate experience with plenty of individual attention.
