As a photographer, I’m asked to do some strange things sometimes, and I’m always up for the challenge!
I started getting into photography 3 years ago when my wife told me she wanted some good photos of our kids as they were growing up. She got me a Samsung NX500 camera and I fall in love with photography, teaching myself everything I know from watching YouTube videos.
I’ve done weddings, engagements, maternity, newborns, seniors, family’s, kids, products, businesses, and fashion. Most of what I do includes portraits.
I’m always pushing myself to try new things and I love to be challenged. I’ve found that experience is the best way to learn. So when someone asks me to do something I’ve never done before, I jump right in!
I came to this session thinking I was going to be taking photos of my client riding a horse. But it turns out, she just wanted photos of her horse.
I normally only take photos of people, but this got me excited! I had to think of the style and look on the spot. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. You can’t really ask a horse to pose.
The session went really great and we ended up with some amazing photos!
So here are the results from the session!
