Portrait Shoots

The Equine Portrait Shoots are relaxed sessions, personalised to you and your horse, concentrating on your horses natural beauty and capturing their individual characteristics. I have many years of experience around horses and so have buckets of understanding, know-how and patience (and the odd bucket of carrots!). I prefer to use natural light and simple post-processing techniques to create bright and clean images, that can be printed, framed and treasured forever.

Taking place in a location of your choice, the shoots last approximately one and a half hours and can include shots of just your horse(s), you with your horse (ridden or on foot) or a combination of both.

I'm more than happy (in fact, delighted!) to hear any suggestions or preferences you might have for your shoot, which will be discussed prior to the session, whilst afterwards I'll cut down the number of images and post-process to achieve the best results. Your images will then be uploaded into a private gallery on my website for you to choose your favourites and I will go through the many options you have for display - classic coffee table photo books, print presentation boxes, prints, DVDs etc.

Equine Portrait Sessions start at £60, which includes a 1.5 hour shoot in a location of your choice, travel to and from location (for journeys over 20 miles travel costs may occur) and a 10"x8" print of your choice.

Competition Commissions

I regularly attend Equestrian Events across the country and enjoy capturing quality photographs that show off the elegance, power and trust of a horse and rider combination.

The Competition Commissions are tailored shoots for either personal or commercial use, with the aim of capturing a different and more personalised set of images, or a particular required shot. I am available to shoot polo, racing, eventing, show jumping, showing, dressage and any other Equestrian Sports, either for individual or group bookings, be it for an hour or a full day.

As an experienced equestrian competitor myself, I understand the emotions and often strict time-scales involved, and so appreciate the need for a professional yet calm approach where tact and discretion may be required, to capture a natural feel for the day and the competition.

Once the shoot and editing is complete, I will upload your images into a private online gallery so you can go through your collection of images, after which I will go through your presentation options: either a classic coffee table photo book, as 6"x4" prints in a personalised presentation print box, individual prints of various sizes, 'photo set' prints or compilations (see example above), digital files on DVDs or graphics for your website.

Although varied for your preferences, Competition Commissions start at £50, which includes 1.5 hours at competition, travel to and from the competition (journeys over 20 miles way incur travel costs) and a 10"x8" print of your choice. Timings, coverage and presentation are entirely up to you so please get in touch for a personalised quote.
