Horse and Dog Photography Model Database - Three Red Ponies

Horse and Dog Photography Model Database

While I am technically still on holidays (the first since 2007 that I have officially booked into my calendar in advance), I have had the chance to finalise one of the major projects that I have been working on for a very long time.have been working on for a very long time.

One of the services I offer is commercial photography for equine, rural and agri business such as horse, cattle and sheep studs and livestock fodder companies. I am working with more equine related businesses each year and will be offering the same service to dog and pet related businesses in 2019.

Commercial projects are often required on a short time frame which can prove a bit of a challenge to arrange and co-ordinate when models also need to be found, so I have created a database to register suitable applicants interested in modelling for my commercial work. Commercial projects often have very specific requirements for the models needed for the shoot, so having a private database on hand will make it easier for me to scout appropriate talent and also shorten the lead time for my commercial clients.

From time to time I also have need of specific models for special projects, competition entries or testing new equipment or techniques that it is not appropriate to do in private client sessions.

This database is for private use by Michelle Wrighton Photography and is NOT a talent agency.

These sessions are not the normal MWP client experience and depending on the individual shoot, owners are reimbursed with cash, product or watermarked web sized images. Whenever possible owners will be able to see the final photos and have the opportunity to purchase if they like, although this will not always be possible with commercial jobs due to licencing restrictions.

My Horse and Dog Model Database will be an ongoing project, this is not a competition and there is no deadline for application submission. If you have a horse or dog that you think is model material and you are located in Western Australia, head over to the application page for more model criteria and to submit your application.

Applications must meet the criteria to be accepted and there is no guarantee that your horse or dog will meet the criteria or be chosen for a photo shoot – it may take a months or a year or more before your horse or dog has the required criteria for a given project. Previous clients are welcome to apply and whenever possible model shoots will be given to horses or dogs who I have already worked with because I will know if they meet the project brief or not.

Dramatic Studio Lighting | Horse and Dog Photography

I have always been a natural light photographer, I’ve never liked formal studio photography for people and only ever used artificial lighting for ‘fill flash’ to lift the shadows when natural light was not enough to provide a professional result. My involvement as official photographer for the Lexus Melbourne Cup’s Tour of Boyup Brook in 2018 saw me updating my the studio equipment, softboxes and

Best Time of Day for Horse Photography

Time of day is important for photographs The word Photography is derived from Greek words and literally means ‘drawing with light’. Without light, a photograph can’t be created at all, but the quality of the light is also vital to the quality of the finished photograph. This is particularly important with natural light sessions as the sun is only light

Three ways to create Black Background Horse Portrait Photography

I’ve had a few inquiries recently about the set-up required for the black background equine portraiture that I create, so I thought I would write a post to describe the various options and process involved with each. There are three ways that these black backgrounds are made: completely in photoshop, with artificial light or with a combination of natural light,

This includes all portrait sessions and commercial photography sessions for this time period.
