Here is a list of the shoots that we will be doing:

- Stallions playing together
We will be photographing during the best times of the day for light, early morning and late afternoon, and taking advantage of sunrise and sunset.
You do not need to be an expert or professional to participate in this workshop, simply someone who loves horses and photography. It is suitable for amateur photographers who want to learn while photographing spectacular subjects as well as for more experience photographers and artists who want to improve their reference photographs. There will be walking involved, sometimes on uneven ground, and sometimes as long as 15 minutes, so you need to be able to carry your gear that you will be using.
