Northwest Horse Photography Workshop

September 4th - 6th 2020

 Andalusian in the forest

The Pacific Northwest is one of the most amazing places to photograph horses. The beauty of the forest and trees lends way to terrific backdrops and moody scenes as light floats in and out. Our host facility is situated on 100 acres of pristine woodland providing us with an endless number of photographic opportunties.

We will have a wonderful mix of breeds including Andalusians, Aztecas, Friesians, Lusitanos, and Warlanders.

The goal of this workshop is to learn and grow as photographers. I will help you get past your existing boundaries and learn to work with natural light. There is no set agenda as each participant will bring a different skill set to the workshop. You will learn from me, your fellow photographers and your own experiences.  You will need working knowledge of your camera and its functions.

The workshop will begin Friday afternoon September 4th and we will finish with a final morning shoot Sunday September 6th. Saturday during our mid-afternoon break I will offer critiques and post processing for those interested.  I can help editing images and show you photoshop methods I use, but I try to keep it more about shooting and seeing and less about technology.  

What you need to bring: Camera and a back up camera if you have one. Lenses can be anything simalar to the following: 70-200 or 80-400 and a wide angle zoom, such as the 24-120 and any prime favorites you may have. Tripods are not necessary unless you plan on bringing big glass. Most find a mono pod more flexible. A more detailed list will be sent to attendees closer to the date of the workshop. Laptop (if you wish to participate in post processing) back up hard drive, and plenty of memory cards. You will be shooting a lot.
Recommended Lodging:  I recommend getting rooms at either the Hampton Inn & Suites Burlington or the Candlewood Suites Burlington. Both hotels are located next to one another with good restraurants close by.
Cost of the workshop is $1400. 
An $700. non-refundable deposit will hold your spot and the balance is due 60 days prior to the workshop. Workshop deposits can be paid by debit or credit card via the PayPal link below. Fees apply.  If you prefer to mail a check, please contact me at to get a mailing address.

As always I recommend "trip insurance" to all of my workshop participants. I usually use Alliance Global, but if you'd would like to compare rates, will let you look at multiple companies at once. Please visit the Workshop Booking Information Page for additional details.
