Yard Photo Shoot – Behind the Scenes

Are you ready to take your equine photography to the next level?

Creating the perfect equine photo-shoot can be difficult as the entire experience hinges on your ability to set the scene, interact with clients and shoot great shots, all at the same time. It takes some photographers years to master, but time is a luxury not many people have. That’s why we have created this video for you.

In this on-location training, Emily takes you behind the scenes of a recent shoot to show you how to master everything from selecting perfect locations and making the best use of lighting to posing your model and horse. This is a great opportunity to work with and learn from one of the most skilled equine photographers in the industry. 

When your videos appeared and I had seen some of your fantastic work it inspired me to consider Equine photography. After watching your videos several times and taking notes (not only on the posing, but also the etiquette side with horses as I have no experience there) I arranged my first equine shoot yesterday.

I’m delighted to say it went great, I was so pleased with the results and the owner is ecstatic with the photos too. I still have a lot to learn in this field but without those videos I would have been starting from a much lower level and struggling for specific posing plans and technique.

So, just wanted to say a huge thank you for your great videos as they really helped massively and it has given me inspiration to progress into Equine photography, which I already love doing even after just one shoot!”
