Photography Workshop with Suffolk Punch Horses
Sat 30 September 2017, 13:00 – 18:30 BST
Spend an exclusive afternoon of photography training with award winning (BWPA 2015, Four Seasons Category) wildlife photographer Kevin Sawford at The Suffolk Punch Trust. Train your skills with rare breed farm animals and Suffolk's most famous horses in the 'Golden Hour' of photography. All levels and camera types are welcome to this outdoor photography workshop.
Our event timings include the best lighting in the afternoon. This will hopefully (depending on the weather) give you the opportunity to get some stunning photos of the horses in the warm light of the 'Golden Hour' and of their silouettes in the sunset sky later in the day.
The group will be guided by Kevin Sawford. A member of the Suffolk Punch Trust's team will support us with the horse, and Monika will accompany the group as well to keep an eye on everyones security and wellbeing.
We will start with a short introduction in the Visitor Centre over a light lunch (buffet) and the Trust's staff will provide you with a glimpse in the history of the Colony Stud. Kevin will make sure you are comfortable with your camera settings before we head off for our relaxed stroll on the extensive grounds of the stud to meet the impressive Suffolk Punch horses. A tea break with some delicious cakes will be provided in the afternoon by the Trust's cafe as well. All catering is included in the fees.
We will stay outdoors on the paddocks with the horses for most of the time, in all weather and cameras always at hand. The meadows may be muddy, uneven or wet and you'll need to have a reasonable level of fitness, and bring sensible outdoor clothing and sturdy boots.
The Suffolk Punch Trust and Wild Adventures under Suffolk's Skies are working together to help protect the future of the endangered Suffolk Punch breed. 30% of the fees will go to the Suffolk Punch Trust.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This workshop is suitable for adults and teenagers. If your booking includes under 16 year olds, you accept that they must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult at any time.
