      Jam packed learning experience and photography opportunities! Lisa's workshop is very well organized...with activities tightly scheduled throughout each day. Intensive...informative...fun...great instruction from Lisa as well as all of her assistants. 18 participants, yet plenty of individual help when needed. The schedule is intense...be sure to eat well and stay hydrated throughout the day! And get plenty of sleep that first night because Saturday is a lonnng and intense day!!! Truly...I came away with an increase in knowledge about various techniques...especially high key techniques and panning. And an even better understanding about my camera! Well worth the cost. A great experience!

      Lisa Langell's Magic of Cowboys 2024 has been an excellent workshop. She is detailed and organized with helpful handouts, she provides personal assistance and has plenty of Add'll assistants to also help participants. The day-to day program is well paced. Pre-workshop and post on-line sessions are also extremely useful. The locale is great, the models which she provided very approachable and willing to work with photographers on poses. I am not new to workshops; I have attended many over the years. This is one of the best I have attended. It was so enjoyable I'd sign-up again! Emily M. Wilson /Seattle

      This was a terrific experience. If you're looking to both master your camera and immerse yourself in the awesome culture of cowboys & cowgirls, this is for you. Lisa's staff is knowledgeable, patient, and available throughout the entire workshop. The ranch personnel are delightful. The location is fantastic. Lisa Langell is a consummate professional and surrounds herself with the same caliber of people, from the fantastic food to the handouts, from the staff to the photography activities, this is a first rate experience.

      My sister and I had a wonderful time. I was fortunate that my brother in law had decided not to go and I was given the opportunity to take his place. Lisa was so accomodating in this change at the last minute. There was no additional charge. Which was great! I wasn't able to participate in the zoom meeting that Lisa had and that was ok too. Her staff as well as herself were so great in helping me with settings and the use of my camera. I loved how she would give us settings and suggest what lens to use before each event. The models, the cowboys, and we even got to meet the owner, were so nice and PATIENCE with us. They taught us about ranch life, the horses, cows and surviving cholla attachments(I had several). I must say the weather was coopertive as well. We didn't get our Sunday baked chicken through no fault of Lisa. however, they came up with Plan B and so pizza it was. Funny thing was we had eaten there two nights in a row but never had the pizza. That was good on both accounts. We had a traditional meal cooked like on the range. That was so good! The ladies did a great! This trip was my first workshop. I was very happy with everyone and the other photographers. We seemed to all get along well. Special shout out to the girls who got up early to make coffee at 5 am. they don't even drink coffee. Lisa and her team were just amazing! Loved being there in the open country. Experiencing early sunrise with a rider and saguaro cactuses for beautiful silhouettes. Horses running in the arena, great for panning shots. Sunset with riders running down the road dust and all. Beautiful!!! Learning high key and low key exposures. The only thing I would add is that it would of bee fun to sit around a campfire with the cowboys. However that runs into a longer day and I understand how hard that would be to pull off. The days were early and so full of moments. I can't complain at all. I would do this trip again and highly reccomend it to others. Thank you Lisa and staff for a great experience with my first workshop. :)

      I am so impressed with everything that this workshop provided! From Lisa and her staffs professionalism, the ranch, the instruction, right down to the food served! I went in knowing little about manual settings and left with a good understanding and the will and drive to learn more! Simply put...I loved it!
