Not having done much in the equine photography world before, I was very intrigued when I first learned of EPN's Sombrero Ranch Workshop and the Horse Drive. After reading the background and doing a little research, my expectations were fairly high on being able to be amongst horses, real ranch hands and in an exciting photo shooting environment. And, I hoped that I might even be able to catch sight of some of the wild Mustang horses that roam the open federal lands in Northeastern Colorado and Southwestern Wyoming.
I've been on numerous photography workshops, and they sometimes don't measure up to my standards, either for the setting, shooting opportunities, instruction, schedule or facilities. That sure wasn't the case here! This far exceeded even my best expectations. I cannot think of anything more in the way of shooting, action and of course, wonderful animals in such an authentic Western setting that I could have asked for.
There was no shortage of helpful technical guidance, tutoring, discussions (topics: digital workflow, what equine clients look for, business Q&A, etc.), and even a very good critique. Carien did a masterful job of organizing this event.
I’ll be sending in my reservation for next year right away.
