  • 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 edit and rest. 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!
