Black and White Fine Art Horse Photography – Video

I thought I would try something a little different to advertise some of my Fine Art Horse Photography so created this video with a selection of my favourite black and white horse images.  I quite enjoyed putting it together and I think it is an interesting and rather unique way to show some of my horse art and photography. I hope you enjoy and would love to know what you think of the video....

Grey Show Horse In Black And White

Black and white Fine Art Horse photography

There is just something about black and white photography that makes its something really special.  Maybe because the timeless elegance of black and white allows it to suit different styles of decor or maybe its simply because removing the colour allows the true beauty of the subject to shine, especially when the subject is a stunning horse! Here are a few new black and white artistic horse photographs that I have added to my print and product shops....

Dardanup Heavy Horse Show | Horse Photography

I was lucky enough to attend the Dardanup Heritage Park Heavy Horse Show on  June 6, 2010 to watch some  magnificent Clydesdales in action and obtain reference material for future paintings. There was also a riding and tent pegging display by the 10th Light Horse Bunbury Troop and the most amazing liberty horse display by Sam and Sasha Watson of Horses and Horsemen – a performance that every horse owner should see to get a glimpse into the incredible...

My Friend Flicka | Horse Photography

After many, many years without a horse in sight, I have finally ventured back into the saddle after a lovely bay mare unexpectedly came into my life:) Her name is Flicka, and she is an 18 yo Standardbred…I know I couldn’t help myself, but although she needs a bit more condition, she is fit, sound and you know what happens to 18 yo horses that no-one wants:(  Poor girl has had a very hard life until six months ago...

Dramatic Studio Lighting | Horse and dog photography

I have always been a natural light photographer, I've never liked formal studio photography for people and only ever used artificial lighting for 'fill flash' to lift the shadows when natural light was not enough to provide a professional result. My involvement as official photographer for the Lexus Melbourne Cup's Tour of  Boyup Brook in 2018 saw me updating my the studio equipment, softboxes and backdrops and I found myself really enjoying some high and low key (black or...

Horse and Dog Photography Model Database Application

Is your horse or dog model material? While everyone can admire a beautiful animal, looks arn't everything and sometimes the superstars I need are the ones with character, confidence with new people and situations, a great work ethic and willingness to please their handlers, perhaps special skills, tricks or in the case of dogs - a high level of obedience in particular with solid stays or off lead recalls. I require a database of horse and dog photography models...
