This is where my heart is… {David Stoecklein Workshop at Saunders Twin V Ranch}

Two weekends ago I had the opportunity to attend a workshop with David Stoecklein, a photographer known world-wide for his incredible images of the American West.  Cowboys, ranchers, livestock, landscapes, etc. are usually the main subjects, but he is adamant about telling a story with his images, and capturing a way of life that is too soon dying. 

He set up his workshops at the Saunders’ Twin V Ranch in Weatherford.  This family has been ranching for many generations and strives to preserve the “cowboy way” in everything they do.  Thomas went above and beyond to set up some incredible shots for us with his great crew.  Many thanks to the family for putting up with us and all their hard work. 

I mostly enjoyed hanging out with photographer friends and taking in the whole lifestyle experience.  Most of the time I wish I was the one horseback cowgirlin’ instead of behind the camera- that’s where my heart is, and the reason why I got into photography 🙂  

These are just a few of my favorites, but please click here for the slide show to music of the entire weekend…  it will take a few minutes to watch, but worth the wait!
