Half Day Workshops:

  • The workshops are 3 hours long, and can be given in the afternoon or evening. A minimum of 6 participants are required to hold the course, and a maximum of 12 can be in the course. If you have more than 12 people, consider booking both a morning and an afternoon session.
  • Horse and human models are needed for conformation, under saddle, portraits and liberty photographs.
  • The class will start with some classroom time (about 30 min.) and handouts and showing a dvd, then the rest of the class time will be spent outdoor shooting, with hands on coaching and instruction.
  • The organizer of the course will receive one free registration in the course, and all human models and owners of horses who serve as our models will receive several free 8×10 prints from Carol as a thank you for their participation.

One Day, Two Day or Three Day Workshops:
