Spring Prairie Burns in the Flint Hills

March 19th  AND  March 26, 2016

Craig McCord Photography Workshops and Manhattan Kansas photographer, Jason Soden, team up to offer a unique photographic opportunity. This photo workshop experience is centered on the spring prairie renewal pasture burns on the Kansas Prairie.

Workshop participants will engage in a day of photography on a working 1000 acre family cattle ranch in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas, just 20 minutes from Manhattan, Kansas.    You will enjoy  capturing fantastic images photographing  as the hills light up as the sun sets and the night falls.

The workshop day will include both a day burn and a night burn with a cowboy meal. Opportunities may also be available to photograph cowboys and ranch activities. This workshop will be limited to 15 participants. This will allow Craig and Jason to provide close hands-on attention and guidance to assist you in making the most of this photographic event.

Dates:  The  dates for the 2016 burns will be March 19th  AND  March 26thThe ranch has identified a makeup date of April 2nd.     Due to unforeseen conditions including wind, rain, snow, etc., the ranch may require a burn to be postponed and rescheduled for the makeup day.  Should any last minute conditions prevent a burn, Craig and Jason will have alternative photographic opportunities in the Flint Hills area to still offer a valuable workshop experience.

Lodging: This is a one day event. However, some may wish to secure lodging overnight before or after the event, depending on individual plans and travel distance. Wamego, KS is close by.  One recommendations would be the Wamego Inn in Wamego, KS .  Another option would be Manhattan, Kansas  which has a number of options.  Participants will secure their own lodging, if required.

Fee: Workshop fee is $225, which includes the cowboy meal.   Because of the limited number of workshop slots you are encouraged to sign up soon.  Last year this workshop filled up within 4 days.  A $100 Deposit will reserve a position on the list, based on first-come first-served. Any balance due must be paid NLT 30days prior to scheduled burn.   Don't wait as this event will fill fast.
