Birthday Shoot for Joy - Lover of Horses

Last week I was contacted by a client who wanted to give her very shy and introverted younger sister a photo shoot for a birthday present. The shoot would take place at the Pearl Valley Golf Estate, Equestrian Centre as the sister's life revolves around horses.

I spoke to Equine Photographer Supremo, Tracey Robertson who gave me a few tips about photographing horses. I used to ride when I was a teenager, so also have a feel for horses and am very comfortable around them.

In view of Joy's shyness, I decided that it would not be comfortable for her to do conventional poses but rather to just try and capture natural and candid shots of her interacting with the horses at the Centre. The results were very rewarding.
