September 13 – 21, 2017
The ancient Celtic kingdom of Cornwall is steeped in mythic lore, and is considered the mystical home of the legendary King Arthur and his knights. From its whitewashed seaside villages to its vibrant green countryside dotted with Celtic ruins, Cornwall is also blessed with the wildest coastline and breathtakingly beautiful beaches. It is also considered a landscape of ritual and sacred practices, and conjures up images of the Mists of Avalon and Merlin the sorcerer. Just add horses to the mix, and you’ll get the idea.
This is a new workshop for 2017 that will be both unique and rich in lore. We will begin shooting in the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, home to the medieval monks and where King Arthur and his queen Guinevere were laid to rest. From there, we will travel to the area of Bodmin Moor, which is rich in standing stones and stone circles. We will photograph the horses amidst the stones and ruins, and may also see the wild ponies that live in the area. We will then visit a large Arabian horse farm.
Next, we will continue our journey to a few other remarkable . We will photograph horses in and around the ruins of some old castles, and we are also planning on shooting on the beach as well, before continuing or journey visiting another studfarm in the area of Bodmin.
We are excited about this new adventure, and are hoping it will be an annual event. We think this will be a very popular workshop.
The workshop fee includes private accommodations in a nice hotel, breakfast, travel to and from the airport, plus transportation to all the different locations throughout the week. Emphasis is on shooting, being creative and having fun, as we have found this approach to be much more effective than “classroom style” learning. Tony will share, in his own down-to-earth way, his 30+ years of experience during the shoots, and will cover the many elements involved in photographing horses.
Participants will all stay together.
