An Equine Photographer’s Paradise

Three Bars Ranch is home to over 100 head of horses, 1000 acres of land and an incredible backdrop with the Rocky Mountain Range to our East and Purcell Mountain range to the West, making the ranch the most incredible equine photographer’s paradise. Last Spring we hosted a group of photographers for a week long seminar on Equine Photography and it was such a success, that we are offering another week of fun, excitement and learning. Three Bars Equine Photographer's Paradise This year’s instructor is Professional Equine Photographer, Ryan Courson (Horse and Hound Photography ) An award winning Canadian equine photographer, Ryan’s images grace the walls of homes and businesses throughout the world. In addition, his work has been featured on the National Geographic website, and has also been used by The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft, and various horse publications throughout Canada. Three Bars Guest Ranch Photography Ryan’s passion for teaching has led him to present the “The Art of Equine Photography” at various organizations throughout Ontario, and he loves sharing his knowledge and experiences with budding photographers. “My goal is to help my students and workshop participants grow as photographers. It’s a two-fold process. To educate and inspire while at the same time, give photographers of all levels an environment where they can put to use what they’ve learned. By putting all of those elements together, the end result is that people come away with some pretty incredible images that were better than anything they’ve taken before!”
