I’m pleased to say I’ve had a freaking amazing summer! And I’ve been busier than I ever could have imagined. Just recently I’ve felt like my photography has got loads better, and I’m glad to say I finally got a laptop (Anyone who’s done the course will remember I used to edit and do everything from my iphone until a couple months ago!)
I’ve also just been able to upgrade my camera lens (happy days!).
I love doing this so much, and it’s so true when people say every photo shoot is different. It’s amazing to be able to give people these images that you know they will love forever!


The Kickstarter Session

Before you start the Art of Equine Photography Course, we invite you to listen to our Kickerstarter Session. Listen and begin motivated and with strength from the comfort of your own home.

This is the perfect preparation to get the absolute most from this course. We go over creating your Current Network PDF (yet another bonus included in this course), how to use this effectively to build your models and client list and getting your ducks in a row before delving into the course.

A little more detail:

Module 1: Plan for Productivity

It’s so important to get yourself, your kit, the client and the horse prepared for their photo shoot. This is one of the highest complaints we hear from photographers. Does this sound familiar?

“My client was wearing old jodhpurs and a hoodie; the images just don’t look good”

“The horse was still in its field when I arrived, what a waste of time”

 “The client cancelled right at the last minute, now what do I do?”

The good news is it happens to everyone, the bad news is it will keep happening forever if you don’t fix it.

Now the next part might sting but we say this with love, this is because your client wasn’t prepared, neither were you.

Let us eliminate these frustrations from your business by teaching you what and how to prepare each element.

Module 2: … And Action

Do you turn up to photo shoots and struggle to get it running smoothly? We heard a great saying the other day:

“I’m like a swan, calm and elegant on the outside but flapping like mad on the inside”

We want to get rid of that flapping feeling, because if you’re feeling it, so is your client and if your client is feeling it, so is their horse.

We have a step by step structure for running successful equine portrait sessions, and we are walking through this with you, explaining how to get the most out of each step so that going forward you show up as your best, most confident self.

In this section, we are also going to start touching on finding your voice. Put your hand up right now if you struggle to shout out your directions to your client and their horse. It’s a super scary thing to do, but by learning to structure a shoot in a way that gives your client confidence, you will grow as well, and the voice will start showing up.

Module 3: Strike A Pose

A common question we get:

“How do I improve my posing? I seem to end up doing the same thing over and over again”


“I need help posing with the horses constantly moving”

Boy do we know this feeling. Which is why we have created a break down for the 12 top poses you can use on your photoshoots. This module will ensure you have plenty of ideas for posing whether you are presented with a 5-year-old and their Shetland pony or a professional rider with 3 horses.

There is a key to creating poses that allows the horse and human to interact naturally to create the connection and bond that can be easily missed.

Module 4: Location, Location, Location

The fear: “getting to a new location and panicking about where to shoot”

After many years of equine portrait sessions, we have both seen a lot of yards and locations.

We have packaged together 14 locations that you will be able to find on a yard, home or on location. After this module you will be able to strut your stuff onto a session and pick the perfect settings for each set of images.

This is another module that will grow your confidence. Knowing what you are looking for when you get to a yard is half the battle. Your client will also feel super settled with someone who knows what they are looking for.

Module 5: Light Up Your Life

Oof, this can be tricky can’t it? Have you ever been shooting the perfect portrait and all of a sudden the midday sun appears and casts a nasty shadow straight across your clients face? What do you do? Turn them? Move them? Well, in this module we walk you through how to effectively use natural light.

Gone are the days that you are screaming inside because you feel like the light is distroying your perfect locations and poses. Learn to use the light to your advantage. Celebrate the grey overcast and dance in the sunshine.

We are also running through the Do’s and Don’ts of light. We want you to understand what matters to you and what matters to your client – as it can differ enormously!

Module 6: Shoot… And Score

If you are struggling with consistent editing of your images, or maybe you don’t know how to get your images looking their best then listen up!

We will walk you through how to process your images in Lightroom to lift them another 50%. Even if you’ve never used lightroom in all its glory, this module can be revisited as you grow your skills.

We are also guiding you on how to present your images and what to leave out.

Shhh – Bonus! We will also be critiquing in this module. You have to be able to view your images with a critiques eye and establish whether you are delivering what your clients want. You will be able to do this with kindness and love to yourself and be able to propel yourself and your images forward.
