Spend a weekend on a real, working Texas ranch, photographing cowboys, the ranching life, and a kangaroo.
Join us Friday, November 4th to Sunday, November 6th at Lehmann Legacy Ranch for a weekend photography workshop led by instructor Skeeter Hagler and Kevin Vandivier from Texas Highways Magazine.
What to Expect
It all starts with a social followed by dinner at Carol’s Restaurant in Cat Spring, Texas and a multimedia presentation meant to prepare you for the weekend.
On Saturday morning, we’ll all meet at the ranch where Skeeter will show us how to choose a location for shooting a cowboy portrait. Everybody will get a chance to snap a few shots too.
Following a chuckwagon breakfast, we’ll head over to a different part of the ranch to take pictures of some of the animals on the ranch—including a live kangaroo.
During the middle of the day, you and your partner will have the opportunity to explore the ranch and shoot photos on your own. We’ll all meet again at sunset for a demonstration on how to shoot a cowboy portrait using a flash.
We’ll end the day with a slideshow of your shots from the day, along with some professional critiques from Skeeter and Kevin on how to make your photos even better.
On Sunday morning, Skeeter will lead us in a photography session where we’ll shoot cowboys working cattle. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy another chuckwagon breakfast and then we’ll all be sent out on assignment to capture some aspects of the ranching life.
Finally, we’ll cap it all off with another slideshow presentation of your shots from the day and critiques on how to make them better.
