TBH, For me it doesnt make much difference as most show photographers I have come accross are useless and don't seem to understand what makes a lovely equine photo. There are a few of the big name companies that do (in UK off the top of my head the only ones that stand out are bluprint studios and Equinational).
Very often my mother gets far better photos then the photographer. The amount of times I've gone to the photo stand, and seen odd angles, wrong timing in canter, very odd shots is phenominal. Honestly I don't want a photo that makes my very well put together pony look narrow in front, nor do I want a photo of the down stride of the canter, and If I am at a HORSE show I do not want a photo of my ugly mug without a horse in sight or with half a horse head in the side of the photo.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
