Booking Your Room At The Ranch

All conference attendees stay at the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch.  We have worked out a special rate for the attendees of The Photo Creators Conference.  Better yet, we have worked it out so breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all you can eat, and all are included with your room.  The sooner you book your room, the better the room will be.  
To book your room at the ranch, you need to call:

Hanna Pease: (520) 731-5574.  Email:

Mary-Ellen: (520) 731-5568.  Email:  

Mention that you have registered for the Photo Creators Lighting Conference and are looking to book your room. 
If you come with friends to the conference, the rates per room get lower the more people stay in the same room.  So plan with your friends to stay together accordingly.  The rooms can accommodate up to four people per room. Please speak to Mary-Ellen at the ranch/hotel to help you with your accomodations.  You will need three nights.  Monday night check-in.  Thursday Morning check-out.

Photography Workshops

The Tanque Verde Guest Ranch

Despite the great education and hands-on shooting opportunities, this conference is based on a retreat experience with many opportunities for socializing and all of us having fun as a group. We all have breakfast, lunch, and dinner together. We also have evening social events planned over a big bond fire. Please note that the ranch is 20 miles away from the nearest restaurant.  Therefore, it is recommended to just get your room with your meals included.  It will save you money to do it this way.  

Note: The Tanque Verde Guest Ranch is an incredibly fun place for spouses and children. In the past, many of the attendees bring their famlies with them. If you bring children, there are a large number of activities for them at the ranch throughout the day. Trust me, spouses or children will be very well entertained!  Please ask the ranch about all the activities for spouses and children avaiable.  

Shuttle from Airport to The Ranch and Back

The ranch offers a shuttle service from the aiport to the ranch, and back to the airport.  THERE IS NO NEED TO RENT A CAR.  The shuttle fee is fixed, so the more people that get in at the same time, the cheaper.  There is not that many flights into Tucson, so many attendees will be arriving at the same time.  You can arrange the shuttle by calling the hotel/ranch, and giving them your flight #, airline, arrival time, and date of arrival.  

Who is this Conference For

The Photo Creators Conference is designed to have the instructors teach their skill rotation from the basic concepts, all the way to masterful and creative techniques.  Basic intermediate skill to advanced photographers attend every year without a problem.   We do ask that you know the basics of how to work your camera, how to make an exposure, and know your flashes (on-camera and off-camera).  The instructors cannot possibly know all the brands of flashes and triggers in the market.  It is your responsibility to know how to operate the basic operations of your equipment.
