EQUINE PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR IN PORTUGAL
25th April 2020 - 3rd May 2020
About this tour
Portuguese horses, Lusitanos and Sorraias will be our models during this photo adventure. The main purpose of this tour is to provide a chance to capture the spectacular Puro Sangue Lusitano - the breed which has been permanently etched into the history and culture of Portugal. This breed becaming a favourite to photograph because of their baroque, fairytale look and extraordinary movement, full of expression and charisma.
As an addition to Lusitano models, we will photograph also a few Sorraria horses - slowly extincting Portuguese native breed.
Participation in this tour is a great opportunity to build your own portfolio and to improve your photography skills through the many opportunities which I hope to provide you with!
Traveling to diverse locations across Portugal, you will have the great pleasure to meet some of the best Lusitano & Sorraia horses, but also to discover the exciting Portuguese culture.
During this exclusive trip I will share with you variety of localisations, horses and photo session scenarios. I want to provide with you an opportunity to capture horses with the spectacular backdrops of beautiful landscape, hills, big pastures, old stables & walls, water, characteristic arenas with an interesting play of light and textures. This tour guarantees a great diversity in horse photography, such as: portraits, herds of horses at liberty, stallions in movement, quiet moments with mares and foals on open fields. Equine models are our priority, but one session with riders in their traditional attire also will be arranged.
