PREPARING YOUR PROPERTY FOR EQUINE PORTRAITS

If you have booked an equine photoshoot with me then yay!!! I’m super stoked to be taking photos for you and I’m gonna try my hardest to make the perfect portraits for you but it’s more than likely that we will be taking the photos at your place or wherever the horse is grazing which means I will be showing up with little to no idea of what I have to work with in terms of lighting and backgrounds. There are a few ways you can help me out so that I can prepare myself and my camera to get the best photos without mucking around fixing eyesores and we can just concentrate on you and your horse and getting the most out of the session.

Backgrounds

When I’m taking portraits, I prefer my backgrounds to be very simple with absolutely no eyesores to distract from the subject. So before I turn up to the photoshoot, take a look around the barn/ paddocks and get rid of anything that might ruin a photo (or make my life harder by having to edit it out). Look at your property through the perfectionist eyes of a photographer and fix every blemish you can see. This may include: 

FEED BUCKETS

BLUE BARRELS 

WEEDS

BAILING TWINE 

LEFT OVER HAY

POOP 

HORSE COVERS OVER FENCES

HOME MADE JUMPS 

It could be anything! So spend as much time as you need to fix these things up and then it will make my job a lot easier as well as making your photos a lot more beautiful!


Lighting

Once you have booked your session with me, I will ask you if your property is set up better for SUNRISE or SUNSET. Have a look around your property - do you get a lot of sunlight in the morning or does a hill get in the way of early morning light? I like to use the light that's around an hour or two before/after sunset/sunrise so to ensure I can take the most beautiful photos, I will require you to let me know the lighting conditions so we can book the best time.
