FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you just an Equine Photographer?
No, I specialise in Equine photography as horses have a special place in my heart. I am however more than happy and equipped to capture images of your dog, cat, sheep, pig, hamster - I even photograph people!
What happens when I book my photoshoot?
Upon booking, I will first discuss with you what you would like to achieve from your session. I will then advise the best time of year and time of day for you photoshoot. I will also arrange a pre-consultation with you, so we can go into this planning in more detail. I will talk to you about clothing, horse turn out, the ‘look’ and ‘style’ of your images, and also go through what size images you might like printed and through which medium you would like them presented (framed prints, canvas, albums etc).
How do I prepare for my photoshoot?
This greatly depends on what ‘style’ and ‘look’ of images you would like taken. The overall image is greatly affected by the presentation of horse and rider, so I do suggest speaking to me if you have any questions or concerns! I am more than happy to offer advice about clothing/outfit choices, hair/make-up, and of course the turnout of your horse.
I do not have any nice location for the images - is it still worth investing in a photo session?
Absolutely. With a bit of imagination, most locations are suitable for photo shoots so long as they are safe and you have the permission to be there. Local woodland or a country estate, for example, give wonderful backdrops for your images. Alternatively, stable and yard blocks can often make for interesting image. I also often just photograph horses at liberty in their own fields! Background replacement is also an option, and I am more than happy to discuss this with you.
What happens after the photoshoot?
I will sort through and edit your images, which all take about 2-3 weeks. After this time, they will be ready for a personal viewing in which you can view the entire gallery in high resolution. We can also again discuss how you would like them printed and presented. If you are a long distance away from me, you can opt to have your images uploaded to a private on-line gallery and we can discus your order over the phone.
Do you only cover Herefordshire?
No, I am more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK! Fuel is charged at 35p per mile outside the Herefordshire border.
