Photography Workshop and Scavenger Hunt

Capture Montana on Camera


Hidden Gem

Explore our 6,600-acre photography studio

Bring home the best souvenir, a great story. Our photography program helps you capture that story using the cornerstone techniques of the National Geographic Society’s world-renowned photographers. Choose between our smartphone scavenger and our privately guided photography workshops. Begin at the Rod & Gun Club to receive instruction on equipment and image composition or download a scavenger hunt onto your smart phone. Then, venture across our 6,600-acre acres to capture Southwest Montana’s wildlife, ranch life and seasonal beauty in flux. Our photography program is a wonderful complement to your ranch stay, allowing you to employ narrative techniques that chronicle your adventures in the legendary West.

If you would like to utilize the talents of on-staff professional photographers, book a private photography session to document your stay. Leave The Ranch with your holiday card checked off your to-do list. Contact your Ranch Ambassador for more information.

“Even a simple activity like photography was made exceptional by our guide Pat setting up a chance to watch the horses run into the pasture while we had our cameras ready. ”
