    Ideas for cowboy/western portrait shoot

    I am scheduled to do a cowboy/western portrait shoot with a male model this weekend, and I was wondering if anyone knows any good websites I can look at to get good ideas for poses and settings/landscapes. Sorry for the short notice.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't know of any websites, but when you're shooting, don't neglect the fine details. For example, here's a drawing I did of a cowboy that doesn't even show his face or horse :


    Maybe you can have him bring his ropes, saddle, etc and use them for props!
    Bokeh, bokeh, bokeh....

    Wow, you are good! Nice drawing. We will have access to a horse ranch too. I just need posing and composition ideas. I'm pretty excited about doing this.

    This is a good pose: Link Though I would put more light on his face...

    You can also play with the lighting with a cowboy hat, making interesting shadows!

    Haha...we're probably both using the same search parameters. Can't wait to see the results. It sounds like such a fun shoot!
