Horses on the Beach Morro Bay CA April 21st -April 24th 2023

There is something extra special about photographing horses on the coast. Crashing waves, sea birds, salty air, and pounding hooves. And we may even throw in a few horses on rolling hills with oak trees for fun. Horse breeds will be a mix of everything, Gypsys, Haflingers, Gypsians, etc.

Full! Please send an email if you like to be put on a waitlist.

The goal of this workshop is to learn and grow as photographers. There is no set agenda as each participant will bring a different skill set to the workshop. Beginners to advanced photographer's are encouraged to attend. I will be there to help you grow and find your creative inspiration. I will help you to find light when you think there isn't any and capture a portfolio full of amazing photographs. You will learn from me, your fellow photographers and your own experiences. Beginners will need a working knowledge of their camera and its functions. Bring your camera manual if necessary.

The workshop will begin Friday afternoon April 21st and we will finish with a final morning photo shoot Monday April 24th. Saturday during our mid-afternoon break I will offer critiques and post processing for those interested. I will show some of the photoshop methods I use, but I try to keep it more about shooting and seeing and less about technology.

Cost of the workshop is $1600. A $800. non-refundable deposit will hold you spot. The final balance is due 45 days prior to the workshop. For those wishing to pay with a debit or credit card there is a PayPal link below (taxes and fees apply). If you prefer to mail a check please email me for my mailing address.

Lodging information will be given upon sign up.

and Tamara Gooch Photography reserves the right to cancel or change a workshop at any time due to lack of required number of participants, or reasons beyond our control that might create unsafe or undesirable travel conditions for the participants.

are intended as examples only. Actual itineraries may vary depending upon weather, horses, models, contract service providers, logistical decisions and forces beyond my control. Participants must be prepared to be flexible; schedules may vary depending on conditions.

Grace Period:
I offer a 48-hour grace period on new registrations. If you have second thoughts about participating in your workshop within 48 hours of your registration, I will refund your payment, less a $60 processing fee.

Deposits and all monies received:
Your non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place on any workshop, with the remaining balance due 45-90 days prior to the start date depending upon the workshop. All monies once received are non-refundable. This is because many arrangements and payments are made prior to the operation of all workshops, regardless of the number of attendees. If you have paid for the workshop in full and you have to cancel at any time, you will not be entitled to a refund. In the rare case I decide to cancel a workshop, I do not and cannot promise refunds, credits, or re-scheduling to another workshop at a later time. Trip insurance is always highly recommended. It is possible that I may decide to issue you a refund, minus any non-refundable deposits and a $65. administrative fee. This decision is entirely at our discretion. Under no circumstances will Tamara Gooch or Tamara Gooch Photography be liable for any costs incurred by a participant in relation to a workshop.

I strongly recommend trip cancellation insurance. Life happens, workshops don't fill, snow storms shut down airports, people get sick. Be prepard. In addition to cancellation insurance some may want to consider medical insurance or medical evacuation insurance for international workshops, as some personal medical insurance policies do not cover your expenses while traveling abroad. You can also purchase "Cancel for Any Reason Coverage", which expands the list of reasons for your canceling to an infinite list, from a sudden work or family obligation to a simple change of mind. Do note that many plans require that you purchase your travel insurance within 14 days of signing up for the workshop.

Tamara Gooch Photography request that workshop participants limit their luggage to the equivalent of one suitcase, one computer bag, one camera bag and tripod. All personal luggage is the responsibility of the owner so please keep the weight to a limit you can handle and be aware of airline weight limitations.
