Please find our basic options for Photographic Services. We offer a range of packages and services, from private shoots at your property or arranged location through to show/event/clinic photography with prior bookings or freelance.
Bookings ensure that we will take photographs for you at the show/event/clinic that you are attending. Without arranging images prior to the event - you may still be photographed but it is not guaranteed - a small deposit is required should you wish to guarantee your position in our gallery of images taken from the event.
Please note that all images are protected by Copyright and use without permission is prohibited. Breeches of Copyright and unauthorised use will result in an invoice being sent which will be payable within 7 days. Once you have purchased images you will be able to use them as you wish - and Copyright will transfer to you, with me retaining the rights and permission to use them for examples of my work in my advertising/website/social media. Use of images with the Copyright and 'Stolen Proof', or just a water mark is prohibited - so please be patient for a short time when you have ordered your images - they will be sent out to you much quicker than you will find a lot of photographers will have them ready for you - I apparently have no life other than getting images sorted when it comes to having done an event... lol
Payment of non refundable deposits, and of invoices are to be made via Direct Deposit into my account and please dont forget to send payment advice via email at firstname.lastname@example.org - alternately, I also accept cash on the day, and a receipt will be issued.
Clinic Photography For Individuals
Heading along to a clinic with your horse is an exciting thing - but somewhat annoying if you do not have someone to photograph your lesson, or worse still - you do have someone but the battery is flat, the card is full, or they only have a phone to take a couple of snaps on and you have to really squint to see you and your horse!
We understand that there is a lot of expense involved in getting to a clinic to begin with, the cost of the lesson and all that goes along with travelling with your horse. Keeping this in mind, we keep our prices as low as we can, without compromising quality.
Rather than paying 'per photograph' - you will receive the images from your lesson on a DVD or USB in high resoloution as well as Email/Web size, and you will be able to use them as you wish.
Single Lesson Clinic: $150
Two Lesson Clinic: $220
Additional lessons at the same clinic: $90 per lesson
This package does not include edited images, though you are welcome to let me know what you would like done with any of them and I can certainly do that for you. This pricing is of course applicable to clinics I am attending already - I am not going to drive across the state to photograph just one person as I am sure you will all understand and appreciate.
Photographs from clinics are in the lower price bracket due to not having to sort through and separate as I would need to do if at a show where there are a dozen or so entrants in each class, and varioud classes throughout the day. This is a great way of getting some lovely images of you and your horse, retain the memories of the day and to see how you are progressing with training.
Going to a show or event with your horse is loaded with fun, excitement and a little bit of fear for some! - however if you forget the camera, or do not have someone to photograph your lesson, or worse still - you do have someone but the battery is flat, the card is full, or they only have a phone to take a couple of snaps on and you have to really squint to see you and your horse!
It is pricey enough to get to an event to begin with, the cost of the entries and all that goes along with travelling with your horse. Keeping this in mind, we keep our prices as low as we can for you.

Stud Photography & Private Shoots
If you would like a photographic shoot exclusive to your Stud at home, or a location shoot, we are more than happy to attend your property and have a great day doing a bit of a tour and taking images of your stock for you.
Whether you are breeding Horses, Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, Alpacca, Dogs, Cats or Unicorns, we can tailor a package to suit your individual needs.
As a general guide for pricing though, the following will hopefully give you an idea of what you would be up for though depending on location etc and what you are after - we can begin from about the $150 mark..
All you need to do is let me know how many horses/cats/dogs/alpacas/cows/sheep etc you have that you are wanting photographed and I will tailor a price to suit your needs.
This package includes images cropped and rotated and approximately 15 - 20 images basically edited.
You have the copyright for these images and may use them in any way you see fit. I retain the right to use a few for promotional material and examples of my work.
I can then edit your images further if you require adverts done, images prepared for stunning canvas or poster prints to put on your walls etc. I can edit single images or a collection of them together for you to showcase your animals.
Should you require prints on canvas, glass, framed photographs, phone covers, coffee mugs, banners or signage etc, I am able to do this for you. Just let me know what you would like done and I can give you a quote tailored to suit your specific needs!
There may be a small travel charge - depending on distance that needs to be travelled to get to your property or location of shoot. Shoots within 50km of my home base have the travel fee included. Unfortunately fuel is not cheap these days and sadly I cannot absorb the cost of this as a general rule.
Here you can see some examples of images that may end up in your collection from a stud shoot.
I find the best images are those that are most natural. This can be of the horses just playing in the paddock, foals sleeping, ewes and their lambs, the dogs hanging out around the place etc.
The kids (or yourself!) with the animals always make for great images too.
Along with shots of them in the paddock - we can also stand the horses up nicely for photographs suitable for identification/registration and sale.
While my mobility may be limited at times - I tend to travel with my milk crate and walking stick in the car so that I can take that around the properties I visit and take a seat when needed.
I also have my walking frame and my mobility scooter dependent on how the body is behaving at the time so am covered for most situations.
Being able to get down a little lower, I find that the horses are a little more interested, it gives a great perspective and youngsters tend to come up closer to see what I am doing.
Having patience is the most important thing when it comes to photographing animals & children - and some adults!
