Shooting The West, one of the West’s most distinguished photography symposiums, features renowned presenters in many different photographic fields. Throw workshops, participant shows, juried contents and vendors like Canon and Epson into the mix, along with portfolio reviews, unparalleled Basque food and lots of Winnemucca-style Western fun…and you’ve got a pretty good idea what it’s all about. Throughout the past 27 years, many of the biggest names in photography have shared techniques and images with over three hundred enthusiastic participants, with diversity as one of the hallmarks of the event.
Bringing decorated photographers to Winnemucca year after year, participants are able to register for hands-on workshops with the pros. Typically held the first week of March, Shooting the West has showcased distinguished guests from the fields of photojournalism, photo-documentary, commercial, portraiture, nature, natural scene, wildlife, fine art, National Geographic and more.
And the workshops? Totally interesting. With options like HDR Photography, Time-Lapse Photography, Light Painting Techniques, and many more, you’ll be a bonafide pro yourself by the time you hit the road. ‘Give It Your Best Shot’ is a juried show featuring Shooting The West participant’s work. The Range Outback Roundup, sponsored by Range Magazine is another vehicle for participants to share their work and test the waters of editorial submissions. Friday and Saturday evening receptions and entertainment provide an opportunity to socialize and network.
