Adventure is calling, so we must go


Adventure is calling, so we must go. Equine Photo Expeditionss by The Pixel Nomad are unique photo tours to combine the best horses, photography and travel.

Your photographic adventure of a lifetime is calling you to join this unique photo tour. I have explored the best locations during my travels to take photos: from the highest glacier valley, to dramatic mountain sceneries, perfect beaches, 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 the 6 to 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.

Exciting and unique

What to expect

During the past years I have made many contacts to amazing horses and people in different parts of Europe. For my unique Expeditions, I will put together one highlight after another. Our horse models will be mostly local horse breeds with a special focus on rare and endangered breeds. Each Expedition in unique and I don’t plan to repeat them in the following years.

Think outside the box

What you can learn

The Equine Photo Expedition is not like a 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. Before embarking the tour we will have a preparation call to get to know and clear things up. 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.
