Push the Limits of your Creativity by
Creating and Using Textures

New EPNet Online Course with Sherron Sheppard
September 23 - October 6, 2013


Photo art by Sherron SheppardAdding textures to your photographs is a very easy way to make your work unique. And you don't have to spend money to buy textures. Learn how you can make your own textures using your camera, Photoshop or Elements and traditional art mediums. This short course provides easy to follow, step by step, course material on how to capture and use these textures. The advantage of creating your own textures is that they are yours and yours alone and not ones that hundreds of other photographers also use.

2014 Jicarilla & Placitas Wild Horses
Based out of Bernalillo & Chama, New Mexico
May 23 - 26, 2014


Photo by Lynne PomeranzJicarilla Wild Horse Territory (Carson National Forest)
This 76,000-acre wild horse territory is home to about 400 wild horses of mixed ancestry. Some bands seem to invite us closer while others flee across the landscape offering a variety of photographic opportunities. The landscape varies from open range, to pinon and juniper dotted woodlands, to tall ponderosa pines as it approaches the Colorado border. In addition to the horses, many wildlife species including elk, deer, bears, turkeys, mountain lions, golden eagles, and others call this home. Tracking and photographing these horses is a true adventure. Read more about this workshop location in the February, 2008 issue of Western Horseman.

Placitas Free-Roaming Horses
These horses have roamed the beautiful rolling foothills of the Sandia Mountains on BLM and private land for at least 50 years. Because of their close proximity to civilization, they have become quite approachable. This often provides an opportunity to accompany them on their daily rituals to observe and photograph the behavior and social dynamics of family bands. Sage dotted mesas under the famous New Mexico sky make a dramatic backdrop for these pretty little bands of pintos, grays, blacks, bays, and more.

Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Workshop
Lovell, Wyoming & Montana
June 30 - July 3, 2014


Photo by Lynne PomeranzThe Pryor Mountain Wild Horses, known for their beautiful Spanish characteristics and colors, offer a unique opportunity to intimately observe and photograph wild horse behavior and social dynamics. Because these horses are habituated to humans, wonderful close-up and action shots are available. June is the ideal time to capture the colorful dynamics of this herd as new foals are being born and stallions vie for mares. From the red rock, high desert landscape of Wyoming to the semi-alpine slopes of Montana, there are beautiful views and photographs to be had along the way. Other species of wildlife that call these areas home are bighorn sheep, deer mountain lions, and bears, to name a few. The magnificent Pryor horses and breathtaking landscape make for an unforgettable workshop experience.
