MEET THE BLACK PEARLS OF MENORCA
Next international workshop:
5th - 11th April 2018
When I visited Menorca for the first time I immediately lost my heart to this beautiful island. I fell in love with its unique culture, how the locals treat horses, and of course I fell head over heals for the island’s own horse breed - Pura Raza Menorquina. Even though their coat is pitch black I’m convinced that their hearts are made of pure gold. Never before have I met horses this brave and expressive. Be prepared to fall in love with these elegant animals and their home: Once you’ve been on Menorca its charm will never let you go again.
If you want to improve your equine photography skills while experiencing a rare horse breed on its origin island this workshop class will be perfect for you. In cooperation with my partners Spanish Horse Boutique and the Menorquin Breeding Association it was created to inspire and to teach.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Each year we put a lot of effort into the concept of our workshop classes on Menorca. You will be able to improve your skills and learn from my experience as a renowned equine photographer. We offer a lot of photo sessions visiting the most beautiful places on the island to shoot Menorquin horses and also other breeds like Lusitanos in several settings (liberty, staging, traditional and classical ridden). The workshop includes theoretical and practical classes as well as a post production lesson (Lightroom & Photoshop). It’s open for all levels of photographers.

GEAR AND KNOW-HOW

The workshop class is open for photographers any level. The lessons will be individually adjusted to the group. You can also wish for a certain topic that I will discuss during theoretical class.
