Equine Photography

Hi there,
I just had a question, I figured this was the best place to put it.

I've been taking pictures of dogs and people for friends of mine for a while now, but haven't yet made the leap to being paid for photography. Horses are my true passion, so my question to you guys is this...

Would you be interested in hiring a photographer to follow you around at a show? Just taking pictures of you and your horse, not like the official photographer who grabs one or two shots of everyone. My style of photography is 'photojournalistic', so it would end up being the story of your show day in pictures. My other idea was filming a lesson or something, so that you can see what exactly you're doing while on your horse.

I figured prices would be relatively low, say $50-$100 to follow you at a show all day, and you'd get a CD with images on it then.

Does this sound like something you'd be interested in? Why or why not?

Thanks very much!

Thanks for the responses!

I have a really, really crappy job, and I only make about $200 a week, so $100 for me is about the same as 20 hours of work. I totally understand where you guys are coming from, though, and the last thing I want to do is undercut another photographer who only has that to support themselves.

I think I am going to get in contact with a local barn to see what schooling shows are in the area. I was considering doing that with sort of online ordering system.

Thanks again for your time.
