The Black Hills Photo Shootout is a photography festival which brings photographers from across the country to South Dakota for photography, education, sightseeing, camaraderie, and fun.  The event showcases the natural beauty of South Dakota along with the photography expertise of highly respected professional photographers.  The Shootout is organized and managed by Outdoor Photo Workshops (OPW) in conjunction with Black Hills State University.  With this partnership, we are able to mesh the expertise of instructors who have a variety of photography backgrounds with the expertise of a professional photography workshop and tour leader and the resources of a top-notch college photography program to create a fun and educational photography festival!

The Black Hills of South Dakota is one of North America’s gem’s for outdoor and nature photography, abounding in wildlife and beautiful scenery. Through this event we are able to showcase the beauty and diversity the area has to offer both visitors and residents while providing attendees an outstanding weekend packed full of informative workshops, great networking opportunities, unbelievable outdoor photography subjects, and most of all, fun!

We look forward to seeing you in the Black Hills for lots of photography and fun!
