We’ve all heard the saying, “You can’t please everyone – you’re not a jar of Nutella.” And when it comes to horse photography, that saying holds true. As a horse photographer, I’ve come to realize that not every potential client is the perfect match for my style and approach.

Sometimes, the best way to serve them is by being honest and recommending someone else who can meet their specific needs. Allow me to elaborate.


The Need for Speed? Not Here


Let’s address the elephant in the room – quick turnaround time.

If you’re searching for an equine photographer who can snap your photos today and have them ready for you by the end of the week, I must confess: I’m not Speedy Gonzales.

And that’s not a bad thing.

You see, I believe in working closely with my clients to ensure a truly personalized experience.

From the initial consultation to the final delivery of your equestrian artwork, I invest time and effort into every step of the process.

This dedication takes time, as I meticulously plan the session, design exquisite finished pieces, and collaborate with professional photography labs.

So, if you’re in a hurry, I may not be the right photographer for you.

Perfecting Every Pixel


When it comes to creating one-of-a-kind equestrian art, attention to detail is paramount.

I frequently work with large-scale photographic art pieces that demand perfection. That means I take the time to pixel-peep each image, ensuring that every detail is flawless.

After all, the artwork that adorns your walls should take your breath away.

Given the meticulous nature of my editing process, it’s no surprise that it takes a bit longer.

But trust me, the result is worth the wait.


Quality Over Quantity


To provide the utmost care and attention to each client, I limit the number of clients I take on each month.

This allows me to dedicate ample time to understanding your equestrian vision and the story of you and your horse. I work closely with you, and creating truly exceptional equestrian art.

By focusing on quality over quantity, I ensure that your experience with me is nothing short of magical.

So, if you’re seeking a photographer who pours their heart and soul into every project, you’ve come to the right place.

Perfecting the Art, From Capture to Print


When it comes to delivering the highest quality equestrian art, I leave no stone unturned. That’s why I collaborate with professional photography printing labs that exclusively cater to professional photographers like myself.

These labs uphold the same standards of excellence that I hold dear, ensuring that the final prints are nothing short of exceptional.

These labs are renowned for their commitment to using top-of-the-line equipment and premium materials. Which results in stunning prints that showcase every intricate detail and vibrant color of your horse’s beauty.

Whether it’s a gallery-style wall art or a beautifully crafted photo album, these labs specialize in producing high-quality products that will stand the test of time.

The labs I work with are located in both the United States and in Europe and it’s important to note that the production process at these labs takes time. Each print is meticulously handled, ensuring that every aspect, from color accuracy to texture, meets the highest standards. So, while it may require a little extra patience, rest assured that the end result will exceed your expectations.

By working with these professional labs, I can guarantee that the art you receive is a masterpiece in itself, crafted with passion, precision, and an unwavering dedication to excellence.

Your equestrian artwork will become a cherished heirloom that will adorn your walls and captivate your heart for years to come.

If speed is your top priority, I won’t pretend to be the photographer who can deliver lightning-fast results.

However, if you’re searching for one-of-a-kind equestrian art that captures the essence of your horse and brings you joy every time you look at it, then I’m here, ready to work my magic.

Reach out today, and let’s embark on this enchanting journey together.
