This course is meant to be a hands-on class and you will be encouraged to participate by shooting each week or better yet, every day, posting your work, asking questions and helping class mates. If possible students should have access to horses to practice what they learned at a minimum of once a week.

What Do Past Participants Say About the Course:
"I have enjoyed the course very much and have learned a great deal from it. The readings and assignments have encouraged me to rethink my style of shooting. I am now approaching shoots in a new and better way thanks to the material from this course and feel I have improved as a photographer." Dave Boege
"I would like to say first and foremost how happy I am to have taken this course. I explained in my intro my absolute fear of shooting manually and by week two, after getting to know my gear more, I was actually excited at what I started seeing in not putting everything on auto. I have learned a lot and see things differently now, more creative control of the image you try to portray. I hope that I have succeeded in doing so and I know I will continue to learn. Thanks again Carien for all your inspiration. I would highly recommend anyone to take this course!" Dorothy Puddester
"This course had many eye openers, I was always told I could take good pictures, but I want to take great pictures. I know that my equine photographs have improved and can only get better using all the information you provided us with. Your input was always clear and pushed us to try harder and different areas. Amazing Course"! Catharina van Leeuwenkamp
