All you need to know

Photography

Best equipment to bring is a DSRL camera and a 70-200mm lens or a mirrorless equivalent. If you have other lenses feel free to bring with you as well. For correctly depicting horses we advise 100mm lenses or over. You will also need a computer with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop installed for the editing masterclass and sessions.
Regardless of your experience, you will take home wonderful images. This workshop is built to suit professional and amateurs alike. Yet, if you already understand the basics of your camera – shooting modes, ISO and exposure compensation – you will benefit from a more efficient learning curve. The same goes for editing software - we strongly advise our participants to start exploring editing programs - we recommend Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Basic package allows you personal use of photos only: portfolios, social media and exhibitions without selling prints. Photos may not be used for commercial or editorial purposes. If this is not enough for you – check our extended package, where you are granted with full right of your photos.
You can upgrade from basic to extended package until the last day of the workshop. The extended package grants you the right to commercially use the photos you take during the workshop for an extra fee of 1000€. You will be provided with all legal documents – model and property releases – to avoid any restrictions of use.
