Private photo shoots

Award winning photographer Linda Finstad has over 20 years experience working with horses and dogs, as a show rider, trainer and photographer. She will gently guide you and your animals into a variety of poses to create exclusive on location portraits. All you have to do is smile.

Whether you want casual portraits that capture that special relationship between you and your horse, or Family photos that include your animals. Linda will strive to achieve the image you have in your mind.

Action shots either ridden or at liberty, are always a fun part of any equine photo shoot. We guarantee your horses will be photographed in a way that enhances their natural dignity and grace.

Capturing your animals unique character takes time and patience, more of both are required if you want to add children to the picture ( we love kids)

Linda will spend time becoming acquainted with the animal and discussing what you would like her to achieve in this special portrait. The animal’s owner is required to be present throughout the session to keep their animal relaxed and assist in the photo shoot.

"Ninety percent of the time, I travel to wherever my client keeps their horses, for the photoshoot. However, I am more than happy if you'd like to take your horses somewhere more scenic, such as the beach, a forest, local cross country course or a country park that allows horses to meet you there".
