2007-2014 Archived Horse and Dog Event Photos

I have finally had time to go back through my archives and compile a list of horse and dog event photography from 2007-2014.  This includes all portrait sessions and commercial photography sessions for this time period. I’m not planning to upload all these photos to the new photography website because a) there is unlikely to be much call for them and b) during this time period only purchased photos were fully edited so it would take me months to edit...

Bunbury Photography – Horsemans Gymkhana

All photos from the main arena Show Jumping and Show Horse classes at Bunbury Horseman’s Gymkhana on 19 June 2016 have been uploaded to my event photography website http://equine-photography.com.au For something a little bit different, I have created a video slideshow of some of the photos from the Show Horse and Show Jumping classes. Congratulations to everyone who participated, especially seeing as the weather was less than co-operative, especially for the bigger heights in the showjumping! Here are a...

Warren Agricultural Show – Horse Event Photography

We attended the Warren Agricultural Show in Manjimup last weekend for both horse photography and competition purposes. All of the photos for the Show Horse and Show Jumping events are now available for viewing and purchase on my photography website http://www.equine-photography.com.au/. My daughter is focusing all her efforts on Show Jumping and Eventing and is no longer entering hacking events so I had an easy morning watching and photographing the Show Horse and Pony rings. Unfortunately her mare is...

Palomino Horse Gold In The Mist

Palomino Horse Fine Art Photography

This is something totally new and different for me – composite photography to create an entirely new scene that didn’t actually exist anywhere but inside my head.  The trick with composite photography is to create an image that is believable and doesn’t look like the subject is cut out and pasted onto a new background. In this image, the palomino horse is a photograph that I took quite a few years ago, with some additional painted mane and tail....

Horse Photo Art

I normally process my photos for standard edits required when you shoot in RAW format (contrast, brightness, sharpening, levels etc), and have edited a few with added texture backgrounds in the past, but limited time to get my art studio has me craving to create more artwork and this looks like a good way to satisfy those creative urges.  While I do see photography as art, these edited photos take photography to a whole new level somewhere between painting and photography, and...
