We’re here to make a real difference to your life.
The Training Barn was started 12 years ago by Emily Hancock. After starting a successful equine photography business Emily was inundated with questions from other photographers about how she had created this success and sustainability, and so the Training Barn was born. in 2017 Hannah Freeland, another successful equine photographer joined Emily and together they help 100’s of delegates create the business of their dreams. Find out more about the girls below.
Over the past 20 years I created and developed a successful equine photography business, that was innovative, creative, and stood out from the crowd. I was and continue to be one of the leading equine photographers in the country. My business gave me a very nice lifestyle and allowed me to push my creative boundaries day after day. Over the past 10 years I have been building a career in the art world. Exhibiting at world class art fairs and being represented by renowned agents. I have sold art globally and within famous circles. My art website is www.emilyhancock.co.uk.
Over the years I have invested hugely in creative, personal, and business development and continue to do so. I have been training equine photographers from concept to accreditation for the past 12 years. I continuously drive my businesses to new levels.
I have been awarded the highest accolade, 2 Fellowships for my fine art equine photography from the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP).
Since being involved in training I have received encouragement and accolades from various clients both professional and amateur with regards to my training courses. I feel proud and privileged to be able to pass on my knowledge and experience to other like-minded creative people.
I have been an established equine photographer for the past 16 years. Having adored, ridden and owned horses since I was 3 it was inevitable that whatever my career path, it would involve these incredible animals.
Over this time, I have built up a very successful and sustainable equine portrait photography business. I’ve had 7 magazine front covers, 100’s of featured and editorial images in print and online for digital campaigns. I’ve been published worldwide, and my client list includes stars like William Fox-Pitt, Mary and Emily King, Harry Meade and many more.
My current private commissions hire me for luxury photoshoot experiences, beautiful lifestyle portraits and timeless images to cherish as heirlooms. My current clients spend between £2,000 – £20,000 and I am regularly flown abroad for private commissions.
I achieved my Associateship with the British Institute of Professional Photographers in 2018 and continue to learn and grow as a creative alongside teaching with Emily to help others achieve what we have.
It’s a privilege to inspire and motivate like-minded people and show them the path to owning and running a successful photography business.
