Walter Workman: "The Cowboy Portfolio" Photograph Collection
Walter Workman is an Americanphotographer and photojournalist, based out of Texas. Known for his location photography, he has photographed everything from haute couture fashion in Coco Chanel’s apartment in Paris, raging wildfires in the Idaho wilderness, and extreme sports for Sports Illustrated to dramatic cattle drives in Arizona.
After attending the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Workman lived and worked in New York, Paris, Athens, Aspen, Sun Valley, and Jackson, Wyoming, before returning to his home state of Texas.
Since returning to Texas, Workman has been documenting cowboys throughout the West, from Mexico to Canada. His work has appeared in many magazines and advertising campaigns around the world. Currently, he is producing a photo book of his cowboy images and producing a documentary film -- interviewing many of the old-time cowboys he has met on his travels these past few years. You can find some of his photo essays on cowboys and feature stories in Western Horseman, America’s Horse, and American Cowboy.
