Learn to shoot like a pro
Do you want to find out how our images come into existence? There are no secrets in our workshops! We believe in sharing, comparison and growth through the exchange of opinions and the formulation of the right questions.
From the settings of the camera to the preparation of the horse, from the tricks to attract his attention to the right shooting position, we will take you on a step by step exciting journey to discover the secrets of professional equestrian photography.
We want you to go home not just with a great photo in your memory card, but with a piece of our passion and attention to details.
With us you will not only learn to shoot, but also to post-produce your images like a true professional.
And if you don’t trust us, trust those who have already participated in our workshops ..

What happens if the weather doesn’t smile at us?

The organization of a workshop, even if lasting only one day, is always subject to the risk of encountering a rainy day or cloudy sky. And it is often impossible to know it until the designated day. Notwithstanding that our team will be in close contact with all participants to monitor the situation in the days preceding the event, there are two alternatives: 1) if the workshop focuses on portrait, post-production or other activities that do not require necessarily the sunlight, it will be decided by mutual agreement whether to do it or not. 2) Conversely, if for the theme of the workshop it will be necessary to shoot outdoors, either it will be postponed to the earliest possible date or the sum paid will be fully refunded. The decision rests with the individual participants. If the cancellation will result in the failure to reach a minimum number of participants, the workshop will be automatically canceled.

Required Equipment

DSLR or mirrorless camera body with 70-200 mm lens (or similar); laptop with Adobe Photoshop & Adobe Camera Raw / Lightroom.
