This year’s event features three exciting offerings: the Member’s Workshop at the Sombrero Ranch, and by special invitation, the opportunity to photograph the 800 horse, 60 mile Great American Horse Drive. Nikon rep Mark Kettenhofen will be attending with gear for participants to try during the workshops and horse drive.

Scott Trees and Carien Schippers will lead the workshop session photographing working cowboys at the Sombrero Ranch for two full days followed by a day of photo and portfolio reviews and guest speakers. Special exclusive access will be granted to the participants of the workshop with herds of horses, cowboys and cowgirls working in the corrals, water crossings and lots of action as well as shoots with a chuck wagon and stage coach. Photoshop guru will be leading two photoshop sessions to round out the event.

By special invitation photographers may go for a two hour trail ride with the cowboys and wranglers on Friday afternoon at Sombrero Ranch and enjoy a meal at the ranch afterward. This is the perfect opportunity to see some of the vast back country surrounding the ranch from horseback!

The Sombrero Ranch Workshop will be followed by an extra special photo event. EPNet Members have been invited to photograph the annual Great American Horse Drive hosted by Sombrero Ranch. Photographers will have the chance to shoot this spectacular three day event and have once in a lifetime photo opportunities as a herd of hundreds of horses are rounded up and driven 60 miles to the home ranch over two days. Transportation will be included.

Professional and amateur photographers, equine or otherwise, able to attend will want to mark their calendars for this great opportunity.
