Explorer Day 19.06.2021

Horse Safari in Thuringia

It is a true experience to photograph horses living in freedom. With a little time you can capture a lot: the herd in its entirety in the landscape, details, portraits, social behaviour, foals playing and especially the stallion looking after his herd. The Thüringeti is home to “typical wild horses” such as the mouse-grey Koniks, which harmonise perfectly with the landscape. But also unique are the breeding groups with German Warmbloods and Freibergers, which were born in freedom and live in the herd all year round. As a group we will explore several herds on foot and capture diverse motifs of free horses in the vast nature.

Impressions of the locations and models

Beautiful horses of all ages and a great and natural landscape await us. Here is a selection of my photos, which I took on site in autumn.

Explorer Day

Join me and fellow photographers for a unique one or two horse photo day. I will arrange photo locations and models and we will photograph them as a group. Some Explorer Days are bootcamps and we will spend the day morning to evening in one location photographing and editing. And some Explorer Days have several locations in a certain area, so we can capture a wide spectrum of sceneries.

The Explorer Days are pretty unique photo days and cover a large variety of sceneries, topics and models and give you a perfect opportunity to build a large portfolio.

Exciting and intense

What to expect

The Explorer Day is no wellness day 😉 depending on the theme and locations I will organise 2 to 4 photo sessions a day. This can be exhausting and we might also spend some time on the road. The small group size ensures that everybody gets a good spot for photographing and best views on the landscape. Each Explorer Day is unique, individual and a small adventure.

Horses & Landscapes

What you can gain

The goal of the Explorer Day is that you will make a rich portfolio during these 1-2 day bootcamps. My focus lies on wonderful landscapes and experienced horse models, so you can get the maximum of photos. In fact, an Explorer Day is just the 1-day experience of an Explorer Tour or Expedition. I have inspected all locations in accordance to the perfect daylight and met with all models before, to ensure the best session experience with you.
