Horse Portrait & Photography Service

We can photograph your horse in any setting that you would prefer, whether it is in the field, stable or walking along a farm track. We would suggest getting a range of horse pictures in a variety of backgrounds to provide a diverse range of images. 

In addition, Mark makes use of post-shoot techniques and equipment to retouch your horse photographs to ensure they are of high-quality and meet your expectations. Get in touch to discuss your requirements and Mark can help you plan the perfect photography session for you and your horse. 

Professional Equine Photographer

We provide a high-quality animal photography service by ensuring we set up the perfect photo session by considering things like pose, backdrop and lighting. Mark will work closely with you to discover you and your horse’s personality to bring it out during the photography session. 

Horse lovers and horse owners can have a deep bond with their horses. You might think of your beloved horse as a best friend or a pet, or maybe you hold a deep respect for your working horse and admire their strength and determination. Whoever they are, Mark will capture their beauty and unique character with high-quality horse photography. 

Black and White Horse Photography

Black and white photography removes any distraction of colour and helps the viewer focus on other aspects of the photo, such as the subject. A black and white image can be striking, especially when the subject is something as powerful as a horse. 

Black and white photography is especially beautiful when shooting contrasts. For example, a black or dark brown horse set against a light background in the morning sun can create a beautiful image. Winter is a great time to take black and white images and can create a beautifully bleak image that can help create a natural or rustic feel during winter horse photography sessions. 

High-Quality Horse Photos

Mark is an experienced photographer and has the knowledge and equipment to produce high-quality images of your horse. Mark makes use of a combination of fast shutter speed, natural light and a telephoto lens to capture breathtaking action shots of your horse outside. This also allows Mark to keep his distance which helps keep your horse calm and happy during the photo shoot. 

When it comes to taking close up portraits of your horse, Mark can use a wide aperture to provide a large depth of field that keeps most of the horse in the frame while also blurring the background, ensuring your horse is the centre of attention. 

Capture The Unique And Beautiful Relationship Between Horse And Owner With Professional Equine Photography

We understand that each horse is different, which is why each horse photography photoshoot is individually tailored to your needs and requirements. Not only does this provide high-quality bespoke photos of your beloved horse, but it also ensures that the experience is stress-free for both you and your horse.
