This is an equine photography workshop that focus on creating soulful horse photography in beautiful Italy. We will do sessions in evening and morning light both portraits and in liberty.

As always for my photos, nature is going to be a big part of the photos we create.

During workshop we will start with a theoretical session where we go through preparations, safety, communication with horse owner, excecution of the photo session etc. We will talk about different light situations, how to look for good locations and more. Every participant gets to wish for a topic which makes this workshop a little bit more personal. It can be something you’ve been struggling with or are genuinely curious about.
Later the same afternoon/evening we will start our photosessions where we take photos of different horses both portraits and in liberty. During the sessions I will guide you and give you my knowledge and talk about why and how.
On the second morning we will start with photo session in beautiful morning light, both portraits and in liberty with different horses. After this follows a long session of post processing, and later on portfolio review. I will show you how I edit my photos, photos taken during the workshop. I will show you before/after of previous photos. I will also guide and help you when you edit your own photos taken during workshop.
