2019 Reindeer Herders, Eagle Hunters and Naadam Festival
We have created a workshop that introduces you to ancient Mongolian cultures in very remote parts of a country that once ruled the majority of the civilized world. These nomadic culturest have been in existence for over 900 years and through years of travelling to Mongolia we have created this trip just for photographers to enjoy intimate photo opportunities. Together we will travel through Mongolia to see first-hand the thousand year old art of eagle falconry on horseback, witness the Naadam Festival, which has origins back to the 17th century, and then travel north to see reindeer herders that only exist in remote pockets of the world and most people only ever read about in magazines or history books.
