On assignment for @natgeo | A story where my first love met my second- horses and photography. This image is from the cover story of the first issue of Far & Away, a new magazine that brings together the photojournalism of National Geographic and the reporting of The Wall Street Journal.

A traditional Omani rider performs at Bahla horse festival, Bahla, Oman.

Unlike Western saddles, Omani saddles have no stirrups making a manoeuvre like this much more challenging.

The horses ridden at Bahla festival are a variety of breeds- Anglo, Arabian, English and Desert breeds (a mix of local Arabian mares with an english blood line).

Basel, a 5 year old Arabian flat-race Stallion in his stable at Al Azraq racing stables, Barka, Oman.
Basel wears a mesh hood to protect his eyes from flies. His stable is cooled by an electric ceiling fan.

The flat racing stable is owned by trainer and jockey Anaas Salem Abdullah Alsapa. They train both Thoroughbred and Arabian flat racing horses.

Flat race horses cool down in the sea after training on the public gallops at Barka beach, Barka, Oman. The training racetrack is nicknamed "Newmarket Barka" after the famous Newmarket racecourse in the UK, around which a large number of racing stables are based.
Every afternoon local racing stables come to the sand tracks to exercise endurance and flat race horses.

I'm running photography workshops at my home in London again. Here's some pictures from the series a few years ago- 1. photo project planning, 2. @olivierlaurent talking about his work at TIME, 3. Lunch with @tom_jamieson in Brixton, 4. Mum @eleonorelind leading a goal setting exercise.

PHOTOGRAPHY MASTERCLASS WITH ANASTASIA TAYLOR-LIND
Dates: 16th & 17th June 2018
Location: London
Participants: 6-8
Fee: £280
Join Anastasia Taylor-Lind for an intimate and highly interactive two-day photography masterclass at her home in Hackney.
The schedule puts participants work above all else, fostering inspiration and creative community while moving forward with a specific project. We’ll edit stories, work on developing ideas and project planning.
At the core of the workshop programming is professional practice- building a brand, balancing personal work with paying the rent, building industry contacts and improving public speaking.

Psychotherapist Eleonore Lind will guide the group through some comprehensive goal setting exercises and we’ll have several guest lectures by photo industry professionals.

Discussions, led by participants interest, will center around the dissonance between photography ethics in theory and in practice, publishing images post digital-revolution, who tells the story and what that means for the people we photograph.
The weekend will be informal and cozy with lots of coffee, long lunches and evening drinks in the neighborhood.
Deadline for applications: 25th May 2018
To apply please send a link to your work and brief statement of interest to taylorlindstudio@gmail.com with the subject heading ‘Workshop’.

This Dutchman by all means wanted to go to a pub, so I took him to the oldest pub of Stoke Newington for some vintage bangers & mash. @timdegier #timwrotethecaption #niemanbesties
