Join Kim Weston (grandson of Edward Weston), landscape photographer Winston Boyer and Mark Comon for a creative retreat and photo workshop at the famous YL Ranch in Wyoming. Capture the stunning big skies and scenery of Wyoming and expressive figures on the ranch and in nature.
The YL Ranch is one of those places where the Wild West is more than a memory. Herds of antelope still graze in the meadows, flocks of magpies still talk to each other in the cottonwoods along Savery Creek and the three log cabins by the Main Ranch House are still open to the kind of guests who want more than just another Western vacation. The Ranch is part of the real west where essential things like breathing the fresh air, enjoying the scenery, eating a home cooked meal and creating amazing photographs are the main attractions.
Just west of the Continental Divide, in the foothills of Wyoming’s Sierra Madre Mountains, the YL Ranch combines sagebrush meadows and aspen groves with stands of cottonwood trees and vistas so beautiful they almost hurt your eyes. Our workshop will combine the stunning natural beauty of the YL Ranch in our landscape imagery. The Ranch hands, stock and buildings offer great subjects for journalistic style shooting. The ranch setting and land form the backdrops for artistic figure photography. Every photographer will find the location and instruction informative and inspirational. Each day photographers will have the choice or subjects and locations. Each evening will feature lecture, discussion and critique.
Easy to Moderate. Outdoor clothing and hiking boots recommended
Five days of photography, instruction and critique, lodging, meals and modeling fees
