What does an equine photographer do?

Let’s start with the basics of what an equine does. The most basic outline is a photographer who takes pictures of horses. There are a variety of different branches of equine photographer. You could shoot lifestyle and portraits, or you could gear more towards high end art equine art photography. There is also the equine sport world. With so many different disciplines there are no end to possibilities. No matter what photography avenue you go down the basics are the same. Capture the moments, and help create memories.

How do you photograph a horse show?

One of the first steps to shooting a horse show is either get invited or reach out to local shows. The biggest selling point is that the show runner doesn’t have to pay you to be there. You make money on prints that are sold.On the day of the shoot, you’ll need to find an optimal spot to shoot from. I recommend asking to see the courses ahead of time. It’s always good to verify that where you want to shoot from is good with the show runner or barn owner. Always remember – never be in the way!
