Why does your show need a photographer?

I offer two main services as a horse show photographer. Private Client Photography and Official Photographer Coverage each provide a unique set of benefits best suited to different types of events. Below, you can read more about how each format works and view a portfolio of my past work in a variety of disciplines. I am a licensed and insured business, and can provide paperwork as needed for show management or venues.

Why Private Client Photography?

Your horse show days do not start and end as you walk through the in-gate- why should the memories stop there?

Private client photography allows your competitors the freedom of bringing their own photographer or choosing the one that best fits their personal style, budget, and needs while at a show.

Focusing on individual riders also in turn allows me to focus on going beyond the traditional shots and bring fun, new, and creative art into the show ring.

Why an Official Photographer?

Official photography coverage ensures coverage of every horse & rider. This is greatly beneficial for large championship shows, breed shows where the photographer needs to be inside of the ring to shoot, or if there are more than two or three rings running throughout the duration of the show.
