an ode to the Lusitanos beauty, character and presence
Portugal | 1-6 October, 2024
This tour is an ode to the Lusitanos beauty, character and presence.
The horse through history is known for being described as art; for me the Lusitano is the epitome of this. Through the purpose and breeding of this horse, the selection of traits has made them walk this earth with a special presence. The Lusitano horse is something you must experience through your lens.
We will travel through different regions of Portugal to visit breeders and go to special locations where we can create unique photos of these baroque horses; such as stunning landscapes, typical arena, beach and historical architecture.
During this tour I will also offer a guided editions session and portfolio review which normally is only offered during workshops.
Do you love to explore the culture of new places? Portugal has a strong culture and delicious cuisine that must be experienced!

The Lusitano Horse
What will be part of the experience?
guided organized photo sessions
During the workshop we are organising several photo sessions with something unique at every occasion. We will mix different types of Lusitanos, locations and scenarios to bring you a wide range of possibilities. Mostly focusing on horses in freedom, we will also take the opportunity to create living portraits of both horse and riders in traditional tack. During the whole process I will share how I work with the horses, how I think about light situations, composition etc. and I am continuously supporting each participants during the process. In the end, everything will be a group decision because I do want everyone to feel included.
guided editing session
During the tour we will have time for a guided editing session. During this session, I will share my workflow and editing with the participants. I will also guide and support you while you edit your own photos taken during the photo tour. It's a great opportunity to ask those editing questions you always was curious about!
I offer a portfolio review during this tour for everyone who want it. I will give you my perspective as an observer of your work and I offer constructive feedback and tips for the future adapted after your own personal situation and goals.

Of course we have to enjoy the Portuguese culture in more ways than through horses! We'll make sure to make time to enjoy both delicious cuisine, typical pastries, Portuguese culture and history.
