Ranch Calls

 Equine/Livestock – Ranch Call 
 
 My ranch calls typically are in the morning or late afternoon. That is when the light is the best. You get up to three hours of photographer time. There are no limits on how many horses we shoot. If we are doing promotional photos for a stallion, it does take longer- I would allow at least an hour per stallion. I usually do portraits first, then action and performance shots afterward. We can customize your shoot to fit your needs. I will always try to get extra candid and fun shots to use on your website or ad design.
It is best to have at least two people available to help at a shoot- one to handle the horse, another to help get ears up. I will bring props and things to help get their attention. Do think ahead about your halter and equipment you will want to use. It is critical to have your horses cleaned up and ready to go when I arrive. Your session will begin at the pre-determined time that we agreed on. Time you spend grooming and preparing after I get there will take away from your session time. I will arrive a few minutes early to scout out a good location. If necessary, you may want to clean up or mow an area to stand the horse up on. This area should be as far away as possible from clutter and trees that would distract from your horse. Keep in mind I will need the sun directly behind me. You are welcome to haul your horses here to the ranch as well- I have several great locations for portraits as well as a large arena for turnout.
