“I’ve been a rancher all my life and wanted to be able to share beautiful western scenes with others. Working with Cowgirls With Cameras at the Cottonwood Ranch exceeded my wildest expectations. I learned so much about all the special things to make western photography even more beautiful. We had sessions with splashing water and reflections. We did silhouettes and dust scenes with the cavvy and cowboys. We learned about portraits with and without horses, various editing techniques and marketing methods. I came away from this experience with thousands of images, many new friends, happy memories and a new love for photography. It was an experience that changed my life.” -Keri Pommerening

“Last year I attended the Cowgirls with Cameras event at the Cottonwood Ranch and it was the farthest I have ever traveled to attend a workshop, let me just say I don’t regret it one bit!!  Lodge is gorgeous, feels like home with wonderful food, fellowship and endless learning!  Cara, Kim & Phyllis are all wonderful, they had numerous photo locations and models picked out, they fielded oodles of questions, and never once did I feel out of place or over my head!  It was a relaxed feeling, where there are no “dumb” questions, all you had to do was ask it. We all made new friends, found old ones and learned lots of new photography tips and tricks whether in the field or behind our computers, or about business in general!!  I would recommend to anyone interested in a great adventure coupled with a phenomenal learning experience to attend this workshop. It is a jam packed week!  There is nothing else like it!!” -Becky Finney
