I want to share a secret with you. I did not plan this project. Honestly I didn’t.
It is a product of one part pure chance, one part willingness to experiment without expectation of coming away with the perfect shot. In this post I want to take you through the story behind it, why I think it works and why it is one of my favourite projects.
The first two photos were shot a cold and windy winter day last March, I was at the stables with my wife trying to do a long overdue new portrait of our retired thoroughbred race horse, Zorran. Incidentally, if you have ever done portraits of animals, you know that it is not easy, lets just say that they have no sense of the importance of standing still, posing in a way that makes them look their best.
