“This was a great experience. Love Mo-Ranch!”

-Participant of Photography Weekend Getaway

Hone your photography skills through a variety of guided photoshoots and explore photo software techniques during hands-on lab sessions!


Mo-Ranch is a photographer’s paradise!

Here’s why:

  1. In a beautiful photographer’s paradise on the North Fork of the Guadalupe River with hiking trails and habitats including aquatic, riparian areas, grasslands, oak-juniper woodlands and limestone hills.
  2. Explore the fascinating architecture of the many buildings on the ranch.
  3. Participants can capture wildlife, such as birds, in different feeding and travel patterns.
  4. Weather permitting, we will also try to capture some beautiful sunrise photos and for those willing to stay up late, we’ll show you how to create great images of the beautiful night sky and Milky Way.

Attend/take the workshop with a photographer friend and you can share a room to reduce costs!

Materials Needed:

  • Camera and manual (Not all cameras are the same and this will help if you have questions).
  • Tripod—if you have one (Please rent/borrow/bring if at all possible).
  • Filters- natural density filter—for long exposure shots that allow you to create movement in water & sky.
  • Trigger release—recommended for long exposure shots.
  • USB drive –to store photos from lab sessions.
  • Personal laptop/software –if you prefer working on a personal device with a preferred photo software during lab time.
