TWO Workshops in Newzealand!

26 Jan 2024

Frequently I get asked, which locations were the best I have visited so far photographing horses around the world. Newzealand most definitely belongs to the top Five!

I am so thankful to have the chance to go back to some of the most stunning landscapes and horse people on the planet.

The love for horses, skills, talent and creativity of the Wilson sisters are out of this world. 

We will spend an unforgettable, fantastic time together, enjoying breathtaking landscapes and their horses.

You can meet us in TWO workshops on TWO different locations in Taupo and Hawkes Bay.

After 10-years away, I'm excited to welcome European Master Equine Photographer Christiane Slawik Photography back to New Zealand!

As one of the world's best equine photographers, this 3-Day Photography Workshop is one you will not want to miss. I began my professional photography by doing a workshop with Christine Slawik in Austria in 2010, then again in New Zealand in 2013, and wouldn't be the photographer I am without her insight, knowledge and camera settings (which I still use to this day)!

What to expect from a photo course with Christiane Slawik?
You're an amateur photographer with passion for horses?
You want to take beautiful images of these fantastic animals, but you have no idea how to do it and have already failed many times?
You want to learn how to use your photo equipment properly?
You would like to get tips from a worldwide known professional in equine photography with decades of experience?
Christiane’s workshops are made especially for you!

The award winning German photographer stands for intensive and individual care, the joy of taking pictures and of course for the love and understanding of horses. But she also knows a lot about camera-technique and explains everything about TV, AV, S or ISO. Previous knowledge is helpful but not required.
These events contain an intensive theoretical and practical instruction in equine photography. Step by step, Christiane teaches you professional knowledge and tricks. See, how a professional develops surprising images out of nothing. Get involved into the creative process of planning and preparing a perfect shot. Christiane gives you ideas, how to make each location special and every single horse looking at its best.’

Before photos are taken in portraits, liberty and riding, Christiane will discuss everything about each location, the horses and their individual tack or behaviour. During the photoshoot, she will assist you and answer all your questions. The results of the shootings will be discussed in the group and every participant will get copies of the shots taken throughout the day.
With her tremendous knowledge and experience, Christiane will inspire and motivate you more then you can imagine.
After these workshops you’ll see horses, riders and stables from a different angle. No more snapshots! You’ll start taking photographs.

Photo workshops with Christiane Slawik:
Workshops are available in English, too. They have to be organized by stud-, stable- or hotel owners who book Christiane Slawik as an instructor. At the end of the workshop, stables, riders and horse-owners receive some photos from all participants who can take home lots of knowledge and inspiration. Because of legal problems, photos from Christiane’s workshops and journeys cannot be published, sold or used for portfolios or in any commercial way by the participants. Thank you for your understanding.
