Due to very high winds earlier in the year, we had to postpone David and Jen’s earlier shoot, however they came to claim David's birthday Voucher on an October afternoon, and we had a lovely Autumnal day for it. David and Jen had three horses they wanted photographed, and were wanting a mix of black background images, out and about in hand and mounted images. Some group shots, and some individuals, so to be on the safe side, Jen booked an additional 30 minutes so we weren’t rushed!
We began in the field shelter to capture those studio-like black background images, before making our way out into the field with each horse for some more natural backdrops. First up was Archie – their 14 year old ex racer whom Jen events. Archie was a pro model and had clearly practiced before my arrival! Next in line was Julius, who has had an easier time the last year or so, but still likes to show off his beautiful movement around the fields! And last to go was the magnificent 17.3hh Tom who has done it all, from jumping 1.40m fences, to strutting his stuff in the dressage ring!
All three were wonderful models, and David and Jen were complete naturals too – making my job very easy! After capturing a mix of in hand and mounted photos around the fields, we then turned them out for the night, and rounded up the shoot with some photos of them all having a good canter and play!
Thank you for inviting me to photograph your lovely family, four legged and two – was a pleasure meeting you all!
