The Masters of Equine Photography is an exciting concept in equine photography workshops. Bringing together three of the finest fine art horse photography specialists in the world today – from the USA Tamara Gooch, famous for her beautiful free running horse photography,  studio lighting expert and National Portrait Gallery king  Mark Harvey from the UK, and Emily Hancock, also from the UK, whose incredibly creative approach to equine photography has won her multiple awards.

This inspiring workshop/seminar offers complete immersion in the art of equine photography. Each client will spend time in very small groups of 4 with each photographer, shooting, processing and of course portfolio reviews. Based at a lovely hotel close to Saintes Maries de la Mer in the stunning Camargue area of the south of France, you will of course be shooting the legendary Camargue horses but also other breeds such as Lusitano and Andalusian. With slideshows and talks from all three professional photographers, workflow sessions, wonderful food, music and amazing photographic opportunities every day, this event is certain to be the equine photography experience of a lifetime. Airport transfers, your own en-suite room and all meals are included in the cost.

The event is hosted by fine art Equine Photographer Jonathan Chritchley, who will also participate in the shoots and with one to one evaluations and critiques.

You can also combine this workshop with a 3 day Camargue Horses workshop with Jonathan Chritchley, starting on the 26th May evening and finishing on Sunday 29th May.

Emily’s Statement:

Multi-award winning fine art equine photographer Emily Hancock has spent many years experimenting with artistic media, but always gravitates back to photography as the catalyst and foundation of her work. “The ability to capture a millisecond of our history that would otherwise be missed, and immortalising it with my camera,” she says, “fills me with a heady elation. I love that I am able to witness these fleeting moments, and once I’ve successfully photographed one, I cannot wait for the next opportunity.”

English-born Emily’s highly artistic, original style has been featured in many magazines and forums around the world, and unsurprisingly has its roots in a distinctly non-photographic area: “The Impressionist period, where artists translated emotions into images and deliberately painted with a lack of detail, is a huge influence on my work. So is abstract expressionism, where the intention was creating pieces that provoke an emotional response from the viewer. I use these ideas and techniques in my own work, deliberately focusing on the broad details and emotions of the scene.”
