Horse Photoshoot!

My barn manager asked me to take pictures of all the horses at the barn. She wants to have a really nice framed picture of each horse outside their stall. I'm really excited, because I love taking pictures and summer is definitely the time to do it! Do you guys have any ideas? I was thinking maybe getting a good head shot of each horse. How can I get the best out of each horse? Any ideas??

Wow, I would be totally psyched to do that! Sounds like so much
fun! As a photographer myself, you gotta be patient to capture
the best of every horse. I think a nice conformation picture
of every horse would look stunning outside the door, but also
professional.

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

i love horses at liberty...but for a more polished look, we put polos on everyone with a reinless bridle and trot them along the fence at liberty

you could always take a confo shot with the horse looking at the camera. or i like the idea of having the horse all tacked up right before a ride. then is a good time to snap a photo.

WOW, I am jealous!!

Well, make sure the horse is clean lol

Try some weird angles for cheeky looking shots like moo...



Funny shots like yawning or sticking tongues out are cute for cheeky ponies, could you get jumping pictures?

Thanks for the ideas everyone.

Moomoo - My barn is primarily western. Lol. My mare Jubilee is basically the only English horse. So there wouldn't be any jumping pictures unfortunately.

I was thinking though if these pictures are kind of identification then they would have to look pretty normal. Like either a nice head shot or whole body shot. Not sure yet though ...

Another question --- should I do all one type of photo? Like all head shots? Or mix it up??

Try and get one of each of each horse and see which the owner likes best
