Producer's Notes: We decided to ease into our shoot schedule by capturing a beautiful sunrise at the MTM Ranch in Cave Creek, Arizona. Arriving at 6:30am, it was still pitch dark.
Suddenly, owner and all around wild woman Patricia Motley came roaring down the dirt road, hopped out of her truck and gave us the news: the cowboy she had lined up to do our shot was a no show! But she came dressed and prepared to cowgirl up!
Patricia boasts that she can teach anybody to ride and I dare anyone to prove her wrong. MTM provides guided trail rides in the High Sonoran Desert. The good folks there also provide a variety of services like training and lessons. The area is breathtaking and Patricia is an Arizona treasure!
Shoot Location: MTM Ranch 43001 N. Spur Cross Rd. Cave Creek, Arizona 480.488.4538 | mtmranch.com
Fun Facts: Patricia said an area bobcat likes to chill on her porch. It’s been spotted sitting on the big chair there!
This isn’t the first time Patricia’s MTM Ranch has been a featured location in a 3TV image promo. In 2008, it was used as a setting for Scott Pasmore in our “3TV The Place With More News” campaign.
