Topic: Let’s explore wild and free living horses. We will visit different projects with free living Konik, Przewalski, Exmoor and Tarpan horses. The horses live free and (semi) wild on vast areas without fences and in different natural habitats. It is a perfect opportunity to observe and document equine behaviour and how the herds live in spring. We will have 6 appointments in 3 days and try to spend half a day in each project.
Photo equipment: The horses live in wide areas and in many projects we can observe more wildlife. I recommend lenses with 200mm or even up to 400mm. It also can happen that the herds are curious and come very close, so a flexible zoom would be a good choice to take portraits.
Outfit and tack: It is beginning of May and we will spend much time outdoor. So prepare for mixed spring weather, maybe rain, maybe even warmer temperatures. Important is to bring good shoes because we will hike to each herd and some live in damp marshlands or and the roads are often sandy. I recommend bringing at least two pairs of boots (so one could dry) and the double amount of dry socks 😉 In case of strong sun, better bring sun protection as sunscreen or a hat.
Your Equine Photography Adventure starts here
Join me on this tour and discover new horses and new locations with me. During this micro photo tour I’m on the constant search for new exciting models and breathtaking backgrounds. Therefore we will travel together for a few days and schedule multiple interesting photo sessions.
Each Explorer Tour is unique! And each tour is a micro adventure. Discover rare equine breeds, free horses, golden Haflingers and other horse beauties with me.
Exciting and intense
The explorer tour is no wellness holiday 😉 depending on the distances I will organise 2 to 4 photo sessions a day. This can be exhausting and we will also spend a lot of time on the road. We will meet horses who have never had a shooting before and are unknown to the community. At the same time I also enjoy meeting experienced horse models which are a dream to work with. Each explorer Tour is unique, individual and a small adventure.
Perform photography on a new level
Do you know how to handle unexperienced horses? How to check out the location and search for the best spots? How to instruct the owner, models and helpers for the best poses? How to work flexible and spontaneous in a short amount of time? How to tickle the best out of a situation? And would you like to learn how to process the photos a whole session in Adobe Bridge and Lightroom? How to tackle hard-to-edit pictures in Photoshop? How to manage and secure all the data?
I can teach you in a broad field of techniques and efficient workflows or guide you through your photographic problems.
No teacher-student situation wanted? Don't worry, we can also meet at eye level and inspire each other by sharing our photographic secrets and enjoy the tour.
