When I first learned about the [Cowgirls With Cameras] photography workshop at Art of the Cowgirl, it felt a bit like an out-of-reach dream. I started turning my photography hobby into a business three years prior, and the workshop would be a pretty big investment. I kept checking into the website to see how many spots were left…first ten, then eight, down to six, and eventually down to two spots. After reviewing Kim and Phyllis’s work for the umpteenth time, I decided I needed to commit. I won’t ever regret that decision. My experience at Kim and Phyllis’s workshop was more than I could have expected or imagined. Both ladies teach from their hearts and freely share their passion for their art. Instead of seeing my photography as work, as I had started to look at it, I was able to reignite my passion for creating art. The flexible structure of the workshop made the experience both personal and customizable for me. When shooting events, Kim and Phyllis welcomed and encouraged questions about all aspects of photography, from setting up shots to post-processing to business. The workshop also helped me to build relationships with like-minded photographers, several of whom I’ve kept in touch with. I left Bozeman with a notebook full of ideas, a bolstered portfolio of beautiful images, renewed confidence in my photography, and a heart full of excitement to continue to learn and grow. I highly recommend this photography workshop to anyone who is looking to learn and grow as a photographer.
