I have recently had some questions asked about my location days, so I thought I would try and answer them all here.

Dates and Location
Throughout the year I will release dates and locations for you to bring your pony/horse, for an hours slot with me and enjoy a relaxed portrait session on a one to one basis. You will NOT be sharing your slot with anyone else on a location day. Although it’s impossible to have a ‘closed set’ at a public location, my attention will be on you and your horse only. This hour is a portrait session and although it is structured and carefully planned, this is fun and relaxed.
The current release of dates are priced at only £50 each. This holds your 1hr spot on the day and covers the permit (if needed). Once we have had our fun at the photo shoot, I contact you to book in your private viewing. This is also part of this wonderful experience, you can invite friends and family to the viewing of your images and this is your opportunity to purchase prints, frames, mounts, albums or digital files. There is no obligation to purchase any images you do not want. If you would like my full Location Day price list please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Like a full equine portrait at home, these sessions are about capturing stunning portraits of you and your horse. My style is not to set everything up too much, however, I will place you in a position that works, and your horse will fit into nicely. The love and connection that comes after this is what I am interested in.
I use the beauty of the surrounding views I have chosen, for example; Studland Beach has enchanting pathways from the lorry park leading onto the top of the hill before dropping down onto the sandy beach. We don’t miss any of this, the pathways, the top of the hill, the view, the sandy beach and the playing in the water is all captured in a portrait form. I am not there to snap away and hope that I get something, this is organised fun!

Who do you bring?
If you would like to bring family members or dogs to appear in the photo shoot, please do. The more the merrier!
A group of friends together is also a super opportunity to have your individual portraits done, group images and a day out at the beach with your horses. Pack a picnic and its a dreamy day out.
If the weather looks awful for our booked date, I will contact you 2-3 days before the shoot and we will reschedule for the next convenient date for you and I.
Before the shoot date, I will call you to go through your outfit and styling options. You are very welcome to bring a couple of outfits with you, to give variety to the shoot. This can be a simple change of coat or jumper or a full outfit change.
Assistance and friends
I will have my assistant with me, who is very experienced with horses and my way of working. She is on hand to hold your horse while you change or get yourself into position. I would also suggest that you bring the help of a friend or family member.
