Sonoma California Lusitano Horse Photography Workshop April 22nd - 25th 2022

Our host facility located in the beautiful wine country of Sonoma California and is home to some of the most beautiful Lusitano horses you will ever lay your eyes on. Here you will capture their extraordinary movement, amazing spirit and spectacular baroque bodies. You will have 4 days to be inspired, learn, and experiment while immersing yourself in your photography. We will start Friday afternoon April 22nd and finish with a final morning session Monday April 25th.

The goal of this workshop is to learn and grow as photographers by pushing past your existing boundaries and comfort zones. There is no set agenda, as each workshop participant will bring a different skill set to the workshop. You will learn from me, your fellow photographers and your own experiences. Saturday during our mid-afternoon break I will offer critiques and post processing for those interested. I can help editing images and show you photoshop methods I use, but I try to keep it more about shooting and seeing and less about technology.

This workshop is open to all levels of photographers and beginners are encouraged to attend. You will need working knowledge of your camera and its functions. Make sure to bring your camera manual if needed.

Information on lodging will be given upon sign-up via email.

Cost of the workshop is $2199. A non-refundable deposit of $1133 will hold your spot. Taxes and fees apply. (Trip insurance is recommended). The final balance is due 60 days prior to the workshop start date.

Terms and Conditions

Covid-19 possible precautions: Proof of vaccination or a negative 72 hour Covid test may be required by all participants if still recommended by the CDC.

Itineraries: 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.

Reservations: To reserve your place on any of my workshops you may use the PayPal link at the bottom of each workshop description.(Fees apply). If you prefer to mail a check please contact me for my mailing address. Some workshops fill early so I suggest booking as early as possible.

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: Your non-refundable deposit is required to secure your place on any workshop, with the remaining balance due 90 days prior to the start date. (See Insurance section) 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.

Insurance: We 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.

Luggage: 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.

Tamara Gooch Photography reserves the right to substitute hotels, and other previously outlined arrangements if necessary.
