New “East meets West” II Photography Workshop


East meets West ~ Western Horses & Cattle Photography Workshop

Betty Wiley and Susan Candelario are pleased to announce our second “East meets West” Western Horses and Cattle Photography workshop on Saturday, January 26, 2013. The last fall workshop was very popular and this one promises to be an action-filled afternoon with great photo ops and lots of fun as well.

We have arranged for this private workshop to be held indoors at a Rodeo Arena which not only provides a great venue, but will also allow the participants to escape the typical outdoor snippy temperatures during this frigid winter month. We have reserved the Arena exclusively for our workshop participants.

We will have several riders who will be working and riding a herd of flashy horses including some very exotic Paint Horses. Aside from the horses we will have cattle, which will provide plenty of photos of hooves flying as well as lots of dust and dirt being kicked up as the horses and cattle are driven by the riders thru the dirt filled arena. Aside from the action filled photo session we will  have plenty of western tack available for detail shots and the opportunity to create beautiful portraits of the riders and animals, just to mention a few.

The riders will will be dressed in the usual western attire and will perform several wardrobe changes during the photography workshop in order to afford us with a variety in our photographs.

This workshop is not only for intermediate to advanced photographers looking to photograph the action and details up close and personal, but also for beginners which are looking for special attention with one-on-one instructions with camera settings, compositions, etc in order to learn and capture great images of their own.

If you wish to attend the shooting portion of the workshop only you can deduct $100 from the total cost of the workshop.

After the photography session part of the workshop we will enjoy a quick early dinner together which is included in the cost. The post processing session will follow. Participants will have an opportunity to upload their images from the workshop and process them using various creative techniques which will be demonstrated by Betty Wiley and Susan Candelario.

Please note that we are limiting the number of attendees in order to have a manageable group in which participants will have plenty of space to capture the images without having to jockey for position and in order to be able to provide adequate instruction to participants that may require it. We already have several RSVP’s prior to this announcement. So if you are interested in attending early registration is highly recommended.
