Workshop Description

Workshop Payment Arrangements

OWW - Sample 2




If you would like to photograph western cowboy and equestrian genre in similar settings as I have done I can arrange for a personal shoot and will personally work with you to help you get your best shots.


Each workshop will last about 2 to 2 1/2 hours either early in the morning at sunrise or late in the evening before and until sunset. Dates for each workshop are set on a personal basis. Weekends are usually best for my models. Saturday mornings or evening and Sunday afternoons are the easiest times for models to be availavble. Weekdays sometimes can be arranged.


It will take place in or near the city of Norco, California probably in the Hidden Valley area. (menu)

What does the workshop include?

You can look at my equestrian galleries to see what type of photographs you might expect to get. Each workshop includes an orintation an hour before the shoot begins if it is an evening shoot. Early morning shoots will have their orientation the evening before. Arrangements will be made on a personal basis as to the exact location of the orientation meeting. It will be held somewhere within the city of Norco, Ca. Each shoot will last approximately 2 hours and should provide a variety of possiblities for various angles, perspectives, and lighting conditions of horses and cowboys in their western attire.

If you are interested please E-mail me for more details. I try to make arrangements around weather and personal schedules.


Personal Equestrian Workshops run from $300 to $1500 depending on the number of horses, and models you may want to shoot and the number of people in your group.

For Illustration:

One person shooting and one horse & model = $300 total
Two people shooting and one horse & model = $500 total
Three people shooting and one horse & model = $650 total
Four people shooting and one horse & model = $750 total
Five people shooting and one horse & model = $800 total
Each additional horse and model = + $100

(I like to limit my shoots to 5 or 6 photographers.) (menu)
