The Training Barn: Session One


TB Day 1 -9TB Day 1 -9


Back in September I decided it was time to really level up my skill set when it comes to my photography. I started a year long mentorship with the Training Barn down in the New Forest in Hampshire. 

It's a year long course designed to go through every aspect of an equine photography business, from the photography itself, to the marketing, branding, shoot structure, lighting, composition, settings, you name it we learn about it here. 

I'm on the course with 5 other amazing equine photographers, and the course is ran by Emily Hancock & Hannah Freeland, which are two of the top equine photographers in the UK. 


It's been amazing to connect and learn from these wonderful people, and luckily I've got another 5 sessions down there between now & July 2022 to look forward to. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me, I always come away from the Training Barn Studio feeling so inspired and fired up to create more beautiful images for my clients. 


Here are some images from the first day. We worked on shoot structure, and dealing with bright direct sunlight (which is something I can sometimes struggle with). We went just outside the studio into the New Forest National Park for this one, which was a fab experience as it was different to the normal yard setup.. Models are the gorgeous Harry (dun) & Meadow (chestnut) with owner Jadde & her friend.

For the second day we met with the lovely Emily with her 28 year old gelding Charlie at their home in the New Forest for some photos. This was a great location because we just had a field & a field shelter to use. So it was a great challenge coming up with a variety of shots. Here are some photos from that morning...
