Explorer Tour

Join me on one of my horse photo scouting tours and discover new horses and new locations with me. During my micro photo tours I’m on the constant search for new exciting models and breathtaking backgrounds. Therefore I’m travelling for a weekend or a few days and schedule photo sessions: from the vast beaches of the North Sea to the panoramic summits of the Alps, in forests and fields, in castles and barns. Each Explorer Tour is unique! And each photo tour is a micro adventure. Discover rare equine breeds, free horses, golden Haflingers and other horse beauties with me.

Exciting and intense

What to expect

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 on a new level

What you can learn

How to handle unexperienced horses? How to check out the location and search for the best spots? How to instruct the owner 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? 

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.

Camper Adventure

Experience the freedom to roam in combination with all your favourite equipment. Travelling by camping car allows us to explore longer and wider, with more comfort. The best thing: bring your family or partner! While we are off for horse photography, they can enjoy themselves in their field of interest. This way you can combine a horse photo tour with a family holiday. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your dog too 😉


The Camper Adventure is limited to max. 3 active photographers and/or 3 camper vans.

Micro Adventure

Let’s go off for intense 2-3 days or extended weekend to roam in a specific area. All days are packed with photo shootings and interesting experiences. We will travel together and spend the nights in hotels or hostels. I will pick you up and drop you off at a station, all you need to bring is your dear and some Wanderlust.

The Micro Adventure is limited to 1 photographer.

Informations & Basic conditions

Each Explorer Tour is highly individual and I don’t intend to repeat identical tours. Compared to a planned and scheduled Photo Expedition, we will be confronted with the unexpected and some Explorer Tours can be surprising. This is why the Explorer Tours have reasonable prices and are mainly calculated to cover the costs. Please contact me for price and detail of a tour.
