Equestrian Portrait Photoshoot

Check out my last snapshot post here of Equestrian Vaulting! I love equine photography, it is the main reason I started this blog way back in 2016, so sharing little Equestrian photography snippets is a little nostalgic to when the blog was horseandsport!

Had a very short little shoot with these two after a display of liberty dressage. It’s so nice to see such a wonderful connection between horse and rider!

The editing process of this I have made into presets as part of my Ultimate Equine Preset package available for purchase on my Etsy store here.

Due to time constraints, it was difficult to get the kind of shots I wanted, as well as Fantine, was restless after working so hard on the display. This lovely mare still managed to get her ears forward for the camera for a split second.

I will post a more comprehensive post on the basics of Equestrian photography, find my other posts on the topic here!


Camera Body: Canon 6Dmarkii, Canon 6D
Glass: Canon 70-200mm f/4.0, Canon L 24-105mm f/4.0


If you have a basic understanding of the Exposure Triangle, you will know that outdoor photography is very much weather-dependent.

I was lucky to have a bright sunny day with blue skies, meaning I could use an Automated ISO setting with a limited range of 100-800, a constant aperture of f/4.0, and a variable shutter. To get crisp action shots I prefer to have a higher shutter speed – the minimum being 1/1250.

ISO 100-800

I am currently taking bookings for shoots local to me (up to 80km) so feel free to get in touch for information!
