Magical sunset horse photo shoot

Hosted in English

What you'll do

You'll get the chance to learn about horse behaviour and safe horse handling as well as ground work basics. You will also get to brush our horse model Eclipse to get him ready for the photo shoot. We will then go for a walk in the field and choose a few spots where I'll capture some candid shots of you interacting and playing with Eclipse, as well some poses of your choice.

You are welcome to wear a dress or themed clothes if you want the photos to look even better :) I have a few different sets for the horse that I can match with your clothes - brown/blue western gear and black/gold baroque style gear.

Maximum group size is only 2 people so if you book in with your friend/partner/family it will be a private photo shoot (also if no one else books the second spot). Total photo shoot time will be 30-45 min + 15-30 min for prep work and horse handling.

Note: This is a non riding activity but you will have a chance to sit on the back of the horse for some of the photos if you feel confident.
Other things to note
Please message me if you have any concerns before booking.

I have created this experience so I can share two of my biggest passions in life - horses and photography - with other people. I'm a horse riding tutor with more than 15 years of experience in riding/training different kinds of horses as well as the owner of a beautiful Friesian cross gelding Eclipse - he looks like Black Beauty! ;)

I'm also an experienced photographer (with a diploma in Photography). I used to volunteer at RSPCA a few years ago as an animal photographer where I learned to position animals for photos correctly and get their personalities to shine through the photos for better chance of adoption. Since then I've been perfecting my skills taking photos of my horses as well as doing photo shoots for other people with my horses. I've also done event and portrait/family photography.

A unique experience that combines basic horse management skills (getting comfortable with the horse) and photography. I applaud Melanie for giving clear instructions, being patient and adapting to my needs. You'll start the session by caring and grooming the horse. This creates a sense of intimacy, an icebreaker. The horse was well-behaved, not aggressive at all. We even managed to get shots of me on the horse, bareback. It's a nice, straightforward walk from Hemmant station, and Melanie dropped me off at the station afterwards. She sent me the photos less than 24 hours after the session. I wouldn't say the photos are spectacular, but that's probably because I looked tired after a day of watching tennis. The photos are still good; I'm happy with them. Recommended!
