Anyone Hire a Photographer for Their Show?

Has anyone ever hired a photographer to come and take pictures at a horse show, just to take pictures of them?

With some shows not getting a photographer, was just wondering if people were taking things into their own hands to have a photographer on site.

Obviously, prices would be different in different areas, but how much would you pay for this? For yourself? Shared with other barn mates?

Would you pay more if you got a package of sorts and all the copyrights to all (or a certain amount) of the pictures?

Looking forward to your replies. Interesting question.

Also very interested in people's responses; I've never shown at more than a schooling show and I'm not riding at the moment, but I'm a photographer and I'd love to expand to shooting at horse shows.

That's why I was wondering Ninth.

I only do schooling shows and a fall fair as of right now, so there's never an opportunity to get pictures of me over fences by a pro.

I am hiring a professional horse photographer for a private session, it's a $125 an hour not including the prints, those are extra. I believe it would be quite pricey for a day at a show. I imagine if several of you got together and pooled the costs it could be more reasonable, might be worth looking into.

I think this really depends on your area, I personaly charge about $150 to attend, this includes all pictures on a cd and either 4 5x7 prints or 2 8x10 prints, but that's just me. If I get four or more people I only charge them $50 each for a cd, no prints included. I used to attend almost all the shows in this area, including schooling and 4h but there is no money in it anymore, I was finding more stolen pictures then what I sold...

Thank you Twilight.

That price doesn't sound unreasonable, although still pricey, but you have to pay for your costs as well.

I love photography as a hobby & maybe next year might be getting a high tech camera. What would you recomend, lens wise for horse photography?

I personally use Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 for my main lens, its a great lens, don't cost a lot, I have thought about upgrading but every customer I have had has been more than happy with the photo's I have done for them so I don't see any point in upgrading at this point, but I will probably get a Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L USM sometime.
