On today’s episode, Ute speaks with Christiane Slawik, one of the most famous equestrian photographers of Germany. Christiane has travelled all over the world to photograph horses and she is one of the few who can live from her work. Her photos appear in many different horse books, magazines and calendars internationally. In 2019 she published her latest book “A World Full of Horses” describing her travels and of course featuring many of her best photos. Today we talk about the next chapter in her book which talks about her journey to the Shetland Islands and her encounter with the incredibly cute Shetland Ponies on Great Britain’s northernmost outpost. Christiane discloses her secret love for ponies and tells us all the adventures she had on her trip besides passing on some cool information about the Shetland ponies and their homeland. Like what you do, when you want to make some water shots in a 12-degree Celsius cold ocean and why a real Viking man comes real handy!
