Fine Art Horse Portraiture - Scotland
by Gareth Easton Photographer
Thank you for visiting my Equine Portraiture Home Page.
I have been a professional photographer for 18 years. Following 10 years shooting for National Newspapers, I now shoot for commercial clients throughout the UK and lecture in photography at Edinburgh College.
I moved to the Scottish Borders in 2004 and found myself surrounded by horses! Over the years, in between commercial work and lecturing I started photographing them. I now divide my photography life between commercial photography, lecturing and horse portraiture.
This is a unique opportunity to immortalise your horse in a beautiful fine art photographic print. The information here is a general guide to the services I offer. Ultimately it's all about your horse and you. Anything is possible.
The Portrait Session
No two horses are the same and no two horse portrait shoots are the same. Flexibility and the ability to adapt is key to my success in achieving a stunning portrait of your horse. A standard portraiture shoot comprises of two successive portrait sessions: a mobile studio set up for head shot portraits and an outdoor environmental portrait shoot. The full portrait session will take approximately 2 hours.
The studio set up is dependent on accessing an indoor space, or at least covered space. The environmental portraits will take place immediately after the studio set in an outdoor area.
The shoot would ordinarily take place at the yard where the horse is stabled. However, the location for the shoot is ultimately your choice. If you choose a location shoot ( a beach, woodland) it may not be possible for a studio set up and the shoot would involve environmental portraiture only.
Both the studio and location shoots will use a professional lighting set up.
The finer details of the whole portrait experience are really up to you. From your initial enquiry, we will build an itinerary for the shoot together that suits you, your horse and maximises the chosen location.
