Equine Photographer’s Dream

Tour Leader: Serge Krouglikoff

Descriptif : New improved itinerary for 2024!
Designed for equine and wildlife photographers, we capture the Majestic Friesian stallions in different locations, with contrasting scenery, in Northern Spain. From sunrise and sunset shoots on the beach to striking backdrops at the elegant ranch, you are guaranteed the horses at their best, whether it’s feisty action shots or still and serene portraits.

The second half of the tour is in the Camargue where we will photograph the famous Wild White Horses, a bucket-list dream for photographers from around the Globe. We will capture the white horses in various locations with different compositions in the marsh and on the beach. You can’t beat the adrenalin rush of this noble breed splashing through the shallow waters of the marsh and beach and heading straight towards your camera! This equine dream also includes a shoot with a beautiful black stallion on the beach and an indoor portraits shoot of several different horses with lighting, against a moody backdrop.

This itinerary is a draft only and is subject to change

Day 1 Monday

We will collect you from Barcelona airport at 2pm for transfer to your delightful 4-star hotel, with sea views, in Catalonia in Northern Spain.

We will gather for a welcome drink and briefing meeting.

Day 2 Tuesday

In the morning, we head to the ranch for the first shoot with the young Friesian foals. We capture them playing and running, against a beautiful backdrop, with different compositions, making for a wide range of action shots.

In the afternoon, we return to the ranch to photograph the majestic Friesian stallions, in varying configurations, from single stallion to several at once, allowing you to capture stunning images of their silky black coats and flowing manes, against a contrasting-coloured wall.

Day 3 Wednesday

In the morning we head to the beach, at sunrise, with two Friesian stallions. We capture beautiful silhouettes as the sun starts to rise over the beach and sea. We then change location to photograph the stallions, with the warm winter sun transforming their coats to a shimmering gold, in the soft morning light. Poised and still or dashing through the shallow water of the lagoon, capture exciting action shots and stunning portraits.

Late afternoon, we head back to the beach to capture the horses in both portraits and action shots as the glow of the winter sun sets on the horizon.

Day 4 Thursday

After breakfast, we drive to the Camargue (arriving in the afternoon).

On arrival you are free to explore the beautiful mediaeval City of Aigues-Mortes and enjoy a relaxed evening.

Day 5 Friday

In the morning we head to a local ranch to photograph different horses, including a white Camargue stallion and a black Andalusian stallion. This is an indoor shoot, using both lighting and natural daylight, so you can capture intense portraits of these beautifully trained horses, against a ‘moody’ backdrop.

Late afternoon, we photograph the Camargue wild white horses running through the marsh. We shoot several drives with the horses running across and towards your field of view. We will also take portraits of the ‘Gardians’ (Camargue Cowboys) dressed in their traditional Camargue attire, trident in hand, surrounded by the herd.

Day 6 Saturday

At sunrise, we have another session with the Camargue horses, running together through the shallow waters of the lakes and marsh. We also capture the horses, beautifully backlit, as they run through the woods. After the action, we take close-up portraits of the horses.

In the afternoon, we photograph the sparring stallions – this is a unique opportunity to see the Camargue white horses entwined at full height, in feisty temperament, with their manes flying.

Day 7 Sunday

At sunrise, we head to the beach to capture the Camargue white horses running along the golden sand and in the sea. We also photograph the horses in a peaceful lagoon with beautiful reflections.

Late afternoon, we go to a different beach for a shoot with a beautiful white Camargue stallion. We photograph him running and rearing on the top of the sand dunes, and running on the beach and in the sea, making for striking action shots.

Day 8 Monday

In the morning we photography a beautiful black Andalusian stallion who loves the beach! We capture him running along the beach and dashing and diving in and out of the sea and surf, making for a wide range of dramatic images.

For the final shoot, we return to the beach to photograph the Camargue white horses in the sea and at the lagoon in the golden glow of winter sunset.

Day 9 Tuesday
