MALIN WENGDAHL

Leading Photographer

Her photos speak by themselves. Malin is a professional equine photographer, who loves inspiring her viewer by discovering and portraying each horse's uniqueness. Passionate about horses and the rich state of emotions they bring us, Malin interprets each horse's spirit and mood, transporting it into her photos. Her work recounts stories about horses, with honesty and passion. 

The spirit of the Lusitano captured Malin back in 2016, and today she shares life with them - both in photography and her personal life in Sweden. She works full time as an equine photographer, now associated with Lusitano World, aiming to promote the Lusitano worldwide and hoping to inspire people with her work. With her experience teaching worldwide photo workshops, she hopes to educate and share her knowledge about horses as our equine partners in the process of making art.

Regardless of your experience, you will take home wonderful images. This workshop is built to suit professional and amateurs alike. However, 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.

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.

Pickup transfer will be on the 21st in the morning, around 10am at Lisbon Airport followed by a welcome lunch; on the 26th the drop off at Lisbon Airport is predicted for 5pm. As we will be photographing around Portugal, please be prepared for traveling from place to place across Portugal.

In this workshop, all packages include double room accommodation with breakfast, transfers from and back to Lisbon airport and transportation to all locations of photo-shoots. We will have bottled water and snacks with us at all time. The price does not include airplane tickets or meals, that are organized by LW but paid separately.

Official workshop language is English – masterclasses, editing sessions and explanations on location will be provided in English.

The 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 full commertial rights of your photos, by paying an additional fee of 1.000€.

You can upgrade from the basic to the extended package during or after the workshop. The extended package grants you the right to commercially use the photos you take during the workshop for an extra fee of 1.000€. You will be provided with all legal documents – model and property releases – to avoid any restrictions of use.

Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons, and this season in Portugal is a simply outstanding to photograph horses. If you are a lover of dust effect, or if you love to explore the red, yellow and first greens you will simply love to visit Portugal at this time of the year. Portugal is the country with largest in Europe number of sunny days, and the rain season starts normally after November - you can expect pleasant temperatures, that can go from from 8ºC (46F) at night to 25ºC (77F) on a sunny day. However, keep in mind that as we cannot predict the weather, so we will photograph and follow the workshop plan regardless of weather conditions.
