Early November is a great time to spend along the shores of the Mississippi photographing these amazing animals.

Course Overview

We will being the day with a safety briefing covering the proper and safe way to interact with the animals at the ranch.

After the safety briefing we will spend the rest of the morning photographing the horses long the river, and the collies demonstrating some agility skills.

After lunch, we will begin with capturing some images of the sheep along with some herding by the dogs.  We will then head out to the pasture to capture some photos of the horses and collies.  If the weather isn't cooperating, we may spend time in the stable area instead.

We finish up the day back on the banks of the river with horses and the sun setting in the background.
