Testimonials from previous Ranch Workshops:

The Dryhead Ranch Retreat in Montana exceeded any expectations I had!  Since I was fortunate enough to participate in the first one at Dryhead, I wasn’t quite sure what it would be like….but having taken part in other retreats/workshops, this one was amazing!  Each day was filled with photo opportunities filled with incredible scenery, horses, and riders.  The atmosphere was fun and relaxed and the accommodations were wonderful!  We were taken care of very well….fed great food each day and lived in the cozy bunkhouse, all while being able be around the corrals and horses where ever we went, experiencing day to day life on the ranch. The Dryhead staff was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time and got the shots we wanted….even if they had to do it “just one more time!”  They rode through and worked horses/cattle in a variety of settings that gave plenty of variety in images for the week.  Talented riders they are, kids included….made photographing them all a pleasure! Kim and Phyllis did not disappoint with putting this workshop together and I look forward to next year!  Pam G.   

Phyllis’ Montana photo retreat has been a wonderful experience, Phyllis has great photo opportunities for what each of her participants are looking for-from lifestyle set ups to portfolio building shoots. Beautiful new models and locations. Hilary B.
