Testimonial from past participant:
I am so excited to have connected with these ladies. After years of admiring their work from afar I made the decision to register for AOTC. What a great decision it was. I immediately felt comfortable and knew I was in the right place. All my insecurities about being with such well known and talented photographers in the equestrian world washed away because of how down to earth, friendly and welcoming everyone was.  The entire week I shot with Phyllis, Cara and Kim and also had the freedom to wonder and shoot anything that caught my eye. All three of these ladies were open books and happy to share their knowledge and experience the entire time. One of the really awesome things about them is that they all bring different expertise and experiences to the table so I could get all the help I need with me business. I found such a value in what they offer I have already signed up for a week long workshop and will definitely be a part of  Cowgirls With Cameras for years to come.
So excited for more.
