This recent shoot was the second part of an assignment for a local equine business, photography being used to show their facilities and the rider experience available at High Ash Farm which is situated close to Norwich.
One of the things I wanted to show on this second part of this assignment was the environment which the farm concerned provides for equine enthusiasts. The farm is situated in a lovely location and benefits from beautiful environments and great views in addition to wonderful facilities which include a menage, jumps, livery, and lots of dedicated rides away from roads through beautiful countryside and woodland to name a few.
To achieve a good look at the environment I employed some alternative high camera angles remotely operating a camera on a tall stand to achieve some of the results below. The beauty of using a remote camera on a stand is that unlike the use of a drone there’s less likelihood of accidentally spooking horses. This technique was used in the first image below and that of the riders making their way through a bluebell carpeted woodland below.
For the action packed images designed to show how much fun can be had at High Ash, I utilised low angle camera positions and often quite wide angled lenses to both capture the action and again a bit of the space which the farm provides riders to relax and concentrate on their riding experience.
This was a great second part of an assignment which has introduced me to a great team at High Ash who are passionate about equine pursuits. I enjoyed using varied techniques to provide the farm with images for social media and website use to promote their great resources to a wider equestrian audience. I hope you like a small sample of the images produced.
