Champ | By Michigan Professional Equine Photographer Laura Adams
It was a brisk fall evening and the sun was just getting ready to go down, We’d planned our shoot to take advantage of the warm sunset light and soft color palette of this marshy area, and I brought my studio lighting along so we could *really* capture the unusual color of this gelding while taking advantage of the beauty of the environment we were in.
One of the joys of being an equine photographer and working with horses is that I am lucky enough to have access to a pretty vast clientele that own everything from backyard companions, trail horses, and pleasure horses to competitive equine athletes. Champ is a nicely gaited trail and pleasure horse, with a color we don’t get to see every day, and combined with the background we were working with, I just fell in love with this image of him.
This is but a small example of some of the images I capture during my equine sessions, and is a fantastic example of an image that deserves to be printed L-A-R-G-E on museum-quality canvas and be a predominant piece of art on a highly visible wall or over a fireplace. There are usually so many shots of this caliber to choose from that it’s often hard to pick which one to invest in – of course, my answer is always ALL of them!
Go out and hug your horses today, and may everyone be enjoying the beautiful weather we’re having now that our horribly long winter is over with!
