Maybe you dream of showcasing the rugged beauty and profound traditions of ranch life, but something stands in your way, like a sturdy barn door that just won't budge no matter how hard you push.

Maybe you’re putting in the hours, trying “all the things,” yet it feels like you’re spinning your wheels, and the relentless hustle is leading you straight to burnout.

Or perhaps, every time you scroll through Instagram, you compare your work to other photographers who seem to have it all figured out—they’re booking dream clients, raising their prices, capturing jaw-dropping shots, and spending more time with their families because they’ve mastered the art of “shooting less & making more.”

…And all you can think is:

I want that

But I don’t know how.

Imagine a weekend where you’re not just learning photography techniques, but immersing yourself in the heart of cowboy culture, guided by someone who grew up living it every day. This is more than just an educational opportunity; it’s a chance to capture the soul of a way of life that’s rich in history, love, and resilience.

The cowboys and their incredible partners who raised and mentored me deserve to have their stories preserved through the lens. Photography here is about more than creating beautiful images; it’s about documenting a legacy for future generations. Each shot taken during this weekend will tell a story of hard work, deep connections, and the unwavering love shared between couples on the ranch.

This is your chance to experience and photograph the authentic rhythms of ranch life, learning from those who live it. Beyond the photoshoots, you’ll engage in 3 interactive workshops led by industry professionals, designed to elevate your photography business.

Think of this weekend as an immersive mastermind—a blend of hands-on photography and deep, meaningful education. Together, let’s capture the essence of cowboy life and the profound love that sustains it. This is more than just a workshop; it’s a celebration of the values and traditions that make ranch life so special.

In 2016, Todd Kane purchased the property with a vision to preserve its historical essence while adding modern comforts. Reminiscent of Northern Wisconsin’s dairy farms where Kane grew up, the farm has been fully renovated, maintaining its historic exterior.
