There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.

You can see what man made from the seat of an automobile.

But the best way to see what God made is from the back of a horse.

Join us as we at Over the Hill Outfitters team up with renowned photographer and workshop instructor Christopher Marona to offer an opportunity to improve your photography skills while experiencing the spectacular Weminuche Wilderness from horseback.

Christopher Marona grew up in cowboy country and has spent his life learning the western ways and documenting them with his photography. He is a staff photographer with ‘Cowboys & Indians’ magazine and his work often adorns the pages of ‘Western Horseman’ and other western magazines. His work is vividly displayed in the coffee table book ‘Colorado Cowboys’ by Westcliffe Publishers. He is also accomplished and has earned national awards in fashion, studio and architectural photography. Largely self taught, he sees teaching as an integral part of his work as a professional photographer and leads workshops throughout the west from the canyon country of Utah to Colorado fall color trips.

'First Loop' by Christopher Marona

This is a five day workshop with one day in Durango at the Palmer Quarter Horse Ranch and at Christopher’s studio and four days of horseback adventure out of the comfort of Over the Hill Outfitter’s high country basecamp. Horses will transport us and our equipment to remote and wild areas of the Weminuche Wilderness. Christopher’s enthusiasm and patience will fire you up to expand your horizons in outdoor photography while you are completely submerged in nature. Wranglers and horses will be available to create authentic western scenes in the most beautiful mountains anywhere. Gourmet meals await at camp as you take in the last shooting opportunities at dusk followed by fireside question and answer sessions, far out stories and general mayhem.

Digital photographic techniques are encouraged and all types of equipment are welcome. Christopher has experience with everything from large format to pocket digital cameras. He keeps abreast of the rapidly advancing digital photographic field and is a wealth of knowledge for both those overwhelmed by the capabilities of this new medium and those who want to push its limits.

This trip is limited to eight participants for undivided individual attention.
