Join Hunt’s Photo Education for our second year traveling to photograph the Wild Horses of Utah! We had such a spectacular time in 2019 that there was no way we couldn’t return in 2020! Join us for four days of in-field photography and instruction as we search out and photograph one of this herd of wild horses in Utah!
This is a unique photography workshop right out of “The Old West”! Wild Horses have occupied this mountainous region of Utah since the late 1800’s. The herd is approximately 200 – 250 horses and is the largest herd of wild horses in the west. Mares and stallions average around 800 to 1000 pounds. The colors within the herd are brown, bay, paint, sorrel, roan, buckskin, black, palomino, and gray. The variety is endless due to the frequent breeding within the herd. There are many foal, yearlings and colts that roam with the herd. The horses are in good condition and are frequently seen in the vicinity of the Pony Express Trail in the valley floor. On this workshop, we will photograph the wild horses as well as other local scenes and wildlife.
On this workshop, you will want to bring a variety of lenses, from wide-angle to super-telephoto. The distance to your subjects can vary, as the horses can be right next to you or far in the distance, but it is certainly recommended to consider bringing a super-telephoto in the range of 500-600mm. Please keep in mind that you can always rent lenses from Hunt’s Rentals and at a decent cost!
We will maximize our time in the field shooting a multitude of subjects as well as incorporating classroom instruction, critiques, and photographic assignments each day.
