"Shooting West Texas Photography Workshops at the historic Kokernot o6 Ranch"

April 8-11, 2021 (tentative) - 4 days of workshop.   Pick and choose as many days as you like.

    1st workshop day = $750, each add-on workshop day is $350


The Kokernot o6 Ranch is one of the largest ranches, covering 2 of the largest counties, in Texas.  Founded in 1912, this ranch is worked the same as they did 100+ years ago with cowboys rounding up and working cattle on horseback.  The o6 Ranch is some of the most beautiful land you will see with its deep canyons and tall mountains.


This is a private ranch and family owned.  As an attendee of the Shooting West Texas Photography Workshop you can be one of the few that get to experience and photograph the West from once upon a time.


We will arrive o6 cowboy camp before dawn: the campfire will be roaring with all the cowboys gathered and waiting for breakfast, which is served from the chuckwagon by the cooks.  After the cowboys eat, we will partake in the wonderful, authentic cowboy breakfast.  When the dawn light starts to shine, the cowboys will go to the “catch” pens to rope their horses that they use for that day.  After they catch and ready their horses, the cowboys ride off to find the cattle.  We will travel in trucks to the gathering locations to photograph the cowboys driving in the cattle from the mountains and canyons.  Some of the days will include the cowboys driving the horses to a different camp.


You will get to experience the historical cowboy way of life and document it through the lens during this unique opportunity.  This is a real working ranch, no staged shots!
