As we are both professional equine photographers we can give you all attention you’ll need and help you with the points you are struggling with, Whether it is how to set your camera or to which details you should focus on to make the perfect photo we make sure you will get the most out of this wonderful afternoon.

The workshop starts at 4pm in the afternoon. We’ll start the workshop with theory, this to prepare you for the photo session that is to come. To start off nice and easy we’ll first take some portrait photos so you can get used to the horse models and adjusting the settings in your camera. Before we’ll ask the horses to show off some great action, we’ll go over the theory briefly again so we can make sure you get the most out of the session. Of course, both Lisa and Merel are available during the whole workshop for questions.

Once the sun is down we’ll gather to go through the photographs you made and provide you with feedback. We end the day with a nice dinner.
