Retta Collins: Western Photographer

By Judy Wade

“I want my photos to show cowboys in a working environment, to show
what they actually do and the authentic tack they use. I don’t photoshop, don’t add, don’t delete, just crop when necessary,” explained western photographer Retta Collins.

Growing up on a farm, moving to a ranch, being married to a cowboy and actually helping with cattle work “Helps me to know what is going to happen so I can set up a shot sometimes,” she continued. She also promises the cowboys she photographs that she will never show their horsemanship
in a negative light.
