Adventure is calling and we must go
Travel dates: 07.-16.08.2020
Start & End: Munich, Germany
Featuring the best locations and horses in the mountains of Bavaria, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
Your photographic adventure of a lifetime is calling you to join this unique trip. I have explored the best locations in the alps to take photos: from the highest glacier valley, to dramatic mountain sceneries, free roaming horses and beautiful stallions — each session is a highlight and many locations will literally blow your mind and will make your flash drives glow hot. During this 10 day Expedition we will visit my favourite places and discover their horses in a small and diverse group, so the adventurers can inspire each other, exchange knowledge and share experiences.
The Equine Photo Expedition is open to talented international photographers or videographers, who are tough enough to hike up a mountain before sunrise, can adapt to new sceneries and locations and don’t expect a wellness or luxury holiday.
Exciting and intense
During the past years I have made many contacts to amazing horses and people in the Alps. In this unique expedition, I will put together one highlight after another. Our horse models will be mostly local horse breeds, but I have worked hard enough to organise more than just Haflinger horses 😉 August is one of the most beautiful months to visit the Alps
Think outside the box
The Equine Photo Expedition is no classic workshop. We don't have any theoretical classes, but focus on travelling, exploring and discovering new locations, amazing horses and the best scenery the place offers. But this doesn't exclude any learnings! We will share experiences and give each other insights in our workflow, by spending time with each other and work together. Each participant will have a tiny homework and we will have a preparation call before we start our Expedition. A harmonic and social group is crucial to a successful trip together as a group. I strongly encourage you to step out of your photographic comfort zone and experiment with new techniques, lenses and angles during the tour.
Arrival & Departure Munich, Germany
We will meet in Munich on the morning of Friday 07.08.2019 and be back in the evening of Sunday 16.08.2019. This way we will be able to use the full first and last day. Make sure to arrive one day earlier to Munich and maybe enjoy another couple of days after the trip in the area. You won't regret it, it's a wonderful city and there is plenty to see and do.
Drive & Sleep Epic Roadtrip in 5 countries
We will spend much time in the car and change our location often enough. To be prepared for this epic road trip, you shouldn't have too large luggage or be able to pack and move it quickly enough. Our accommodations will be a variety of hotel, pension, cabin and whatever suits the travel plans best, so we can maximise our time with photography.
Eat, Money, Time
Breakfast and Snacks are included, we will decide during the day where to eat. Please tell me if you have any food restrictions or are Vegan.
Currency in Germany, Austria and Italy is the Euro €, in Switzerland and Liechtenstein the Swiss Franken CHF. There will be mostly 2 sessions a day, but also some free time in between in case you need some alone time or quiet moments to reflect.
The Expedition is very intense and we will spend much time together. For this reason I reserve the right to pick the best candidates for a diverse and international group of talents, to ensure we will get along well and inspire each other.
