Mexico - 2 Day Charro Cowboy Private Photoshoot Workshop

+ More details


The iconic Charro has a fascinating history that goes back over 400 years. But these Mexican cowboys aren't just skilled horse riders, they are also masters with the lasso.

This Private Photography Workshop is set in the picturesque mountain town of Compostela, just a few hours from Mexico's popular Puerto Vallarta airport. This workshop is split over 2 days, so that we can enjoy 2 half-day photoshoots. One in the scenic mountains that surround Compostela, and the other inside the rodeo arena (where we can shoot our Charro model doing tricks on his horse).

Before each photoshoot, we will spend time planning our shots, and covering any technical or creative tuition required to ensure the shoot goes off perfectly!

We will use a mix of natural light and artificial lights. I will teach all you need to know to use artificial lighting to create stunning cinematic photos. Myself and my team are always on hand to help - so you never have to worry about being overwhelmed. You can just concentrate on being creative and taking great photos!

This is a private workshop, which means you will not be sharing the experience with anyone else. We’ll work together to ensure the workshop is built around you, and the photography skills you want to improve.

  • Our photography group thoroughly enjoyed this presentation. JS's images were amazing and really told a story. He explained his ideas and processes in a clear and concise manner. It took us out of our usual realm of Irish landscapes to see some stunning Mexican cultural images
