Platinum White Horses of the Camargue
26th - 30th September, 2024
The Platinum White Horses of the Camargue Equine Photography Workshop. This particular 'platinum' event differs from our usual workshop as we have extended by one day, with more shoots and processing and image reviews, and are offering a smaller group size of 8 guests. Our regular, slightly shorter workshop will continue every May.
Join experienced equine fine art photographer Jonathan Chritchley in this new, extended 4 day photo tour that gives you a thoroughly unique experience – photographing these wild horses running together through the warm waters of the Mediterranean, through the lakes and marshes, and nurturing their foals in fields warmed by the sun. We stay in a lovely hotel with pool and superb restaurant in the middle of the Camargue and close to the historic town of Saintes Maries de la Mer. With this as our base we set out at either end of the day to photograph these beautiful animals, each session involving 5 or 6 ‘gardiens’ or cowboys/cowgirls who will herd the horses as Jonathan and his team direct the shoot to give you the very best possibilities for some amazing photography.
Photograph a herd of 10 horses as they charge through the lagoons towards you. Join a single white stallion on a secluded beach at dawn as he stands proudly, gallops along the dunes and in and out of the water. Spend some intimate time with the mares and foals, getting to know these lovely, gentle animals whilst shooting close-ups and portraits. There will also be slideshows, editing and processing sessions and photo reviews by Jonathan at the hotel. In this extended version of the workshop there will be special attention given to minimalist photography techniques, including compostionand high and low key processing
This is not an equine experience you can buy ‘off the peg’, but rather one especially created for lovers of photography and wildlife, to capture these moments that will stay with you for a lifetime.
