Ultimate Dude Ranch Photography Retreat

What do you get when you combine the splendor of Montana scenery with majestic horses, authentic cowboys, and wildlife? The answer is a photographer’s dream vacation.

Escape to the Bar W on Spencer Lake, in the fall, for a photography vacation of a lifetime. Catering to amateurs and professional photographers, the Bar W is offering an all inclusive 6-night photography week package – complete with a professional instructor.

This full week of unparalleled photo opportunities, both on and off the Ranch. This is your chance to photograph the splendor and beauty of Montana nature, as well as the wildlife provided by the Triple D Game Farm. Triple D’s facilities include over 120 exotic animals, typically including mountain lions, grizzly bears, wolves, and a variety of young cats. The week also includes a herd of running horses, cowboys and cowgirls in full regalia, fly fishing scenes, action shots, and incredible landscape photo opportunities.

After a full day of photography, relax with our informal cocktail hour by the fire, or loosen up in our hot tub before a homemade dinner you will not soon forget. So grab your camera and prepare to be awed!
