  • Information

    This will be a 4-day 3-night retreat in Mesa, Arizona. It is $2100 per person for shared lodging or $2700 for a private room. We also offer couple rates, if you would like to bring your significant other! This is our first all-inclusive retreat! We will be able to have all meals together at the resort, and transportation to and from shoots and excursions will be provided. The nearest airport is Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and we will have a pick-up and drop-off for those flying in for the retreat. All you have to do is get to Phoenix, and we will take care of the rest! Throughout the retreat, there will be multiple Western photoshoots and excursions, including a horse-back tour! There will be 6 total photo shoots, ranging in style! Each will have a different focus meant to grow your portfolio in new and creative ways.

    We now offer Shop Pay, which allows participants to break up the ticket price into smaller payments! We are also able to offer two payment invoices upon request, with 50% due up-front and the other half due a week before the Workshop. If you would like to break it into two payments without using Shop Pay, please email or use our chat!

  • Daily Schedule

    This will be an immersive experience in the great outdoors while photographing and experiencing the Western lifestyle! On our first night, we will go over the schedule for the next few days and settle in for a busy weekend. We will start our days early to catch the morning light and will be out in the evenings for sunset lighting. There will be slight physical activity included as part of our shoots, like horseback riding and light hiking. During the day, there will be some free time to visit some of the local amenities. This is a great time to offload photos and recharge batteries for the next shoot! We will also gather to go over post-processing, photo critique, and tips for the upcoming shoot. Days will be long, and full of experiences and learning!
