Service Description

Highlights - Rugged, Western Landscapes - Dark Skies (Bortles 2 Scale) - Engaging Cowboys - A fun chuckwagon experience - Wildlife such as prairie dogs and bison Description Saddle up for a West Texas adventure! The Cowboys and Canyonlands itinerary is a unique one. Come and join us as we explore the rugged cattle country of the Texas Rolling Plains.  When people think of Texas, this is the part of Texas they invariably think of big, vast open skies, fat cattle grazing on grass, and rugged landscapes that you see in Western movies. As such, this workshop is full of photographic opportunities. For five days, we'll photograph austere canyon lands, wildlife such as prairie dogs, bison, and maybe a snake or two. We'll explore small towns that time has forgotten. We'll take in the night skies in a part of Texas that's dark and mysterious. You'll see stars so plentiful you can almost reach out and grab them! Finally, we'll explore the cowboy culture by photographing real working cowboys doing their daily chores. To add to the charm of this one-of-a-kind workshop, we'll even treat you to an authentic chuck wagon meal served out on the range. Based in Childress, Texas, you will have five days packed with photographic opportunities. You'll get great shots, learn a lot about photography and the area's culture, and, most importantly, make friends with like-minded people from around the country.
