Mongolia – The Eagle Hunters
19-28 November 2022

If you have been thinking of a one-of-a-kind photography exploration, you´re in for a wonderful treat. Mongolia, exotic and traditional, promises a truly unique experience. Rugged with untamed landscapes, you´ll capture shots of the rolling steppe, discover the Kazakh eagle hunting culture, learn the daily life of a Nomad family, and have a chance to sleep in a yurt.

Experience all these through our Mongolia Photography Workshop, led by documentary filmmaker and photographer Hamid Sadar. Hamid will guide you to explore and capture iconic landscapes, hidden valleys, wildlife encounters and people rituals. Exploration photography is not just about taking shots but also a learning opportunity to uncover the DNA of a land and its people and letting it become the guiding principle in our art.

Are you ready for your epic adventure? Start planning now.
