Workshop Location: Boyer YL Ranch

Just west of the Continental Divide, in the foothills of Wyoming’s Sierra Madre Mountains, there is a valley that combines sagebrush meadows and aspen groves with stands of cottonwood trees and open fields of alfalfa. In 1905, John and Mary Boyer settled at the north end of the valley. With their eight children, the Boyers built the YL Ranch, a horse and sheep ranch that at one time had more that 30,000 sheep on thousands of acres of land. In 1926, the Boyer Family built three log cabins under the cottonwoods by the Main Ranch House and opened one of Wyoming’s first guest ranches.

Beautifully situated along the banks of the Savery River, photographers can expect to find inspiration in the scenery of the high desert and the surrounding Medicine Bow National Forest.

You will have four full days of shooting, insightful photo evaluations, group meals, and a taste of the Wild West!
