Explorer Tours

Explorer Tour

Your Equine Photography Adventure starts here

Join me on one of my 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 in Germany or in the neighbour countries 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 tour is a micro adventure. Discover rare equine breeds, free horses, golden Haflingers and other horse beauties with me.

  • Weekend or extended weekend tour
  • Around 2-4 photo sessions a day
  • Personal coaching in your field of interest (optional)
  • Only one (or max. 2) spots available

WHAT TO EXPECT

Exciting and intense

The explorer tour is no wellness holiday ­čśë 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.

WHAT YOU CAN LEARN

Perform photography on a new level

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? 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.

Upcoming Explorer Tours

Have a look at my plans and don't hesitate to contact and book. I usually have only one spot available!

Basic Conditions

Each Explorer Tour is highly individual so it is impossible to make a general price and I don’t intend to repeat identical tours. But 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. Please check the detail page of each tour for the individual price.

Some tour dates are available earlier, some tours are published rather spontaneous because they are dependent on weather conditions or on the availability of the owners. I generally don’t publish any schedules because details are subjects to change until the travel date.

My two dogs travel with us and it is important that you are not afraid or allergic of dogs.

Use of photos

All Photos can be used for your portfolio, your website, social media accounts and your private usage. For the owners and models you need to send 3 edited photos per session not later than 6 months after our tour.

Do you want a commercial use? Commercial use is possible, if you send 10 photos per session not later than 3 months after our tour.
