Description: The photographic adventures at Creek Ranch are designed to provide a one-day immersive retreat for photo enthusiasts interested in taking their photographic skills to a new level. Designed with the amateur or new enthusiast in mind, the experience allows attendees to work in small groups shooting in a variety of Ranch environments with each instructor. Adventure participants will master composition and natural lighting for wildlife and landscapes and also work with strobe lighting for location portraits of Florida cowboys and ranch hands. The Creek Ranch Photography Adventures are an escape, an opportunity to pull yourself away from the cares of the world and into a tranquil, inspiring place to hone the craft of imagemaking.

Creek Ranch protects pastures, forests and wetlands along Lake Hatchineha in the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and headwaters of the Everglades.
