Horse Themed Fashion Photoshoot!

Straight off the bat, horses and animals in general are extremely difficult to work with and requires an enormous amount of patience. I wanted to do something with horses since last year and I finally got to organise it this year; from organising a hairdresser to finding a perfect day (where the weather was good) to go up to St Andrew’s to do this shoot with Rachel (the model) and the horses. Additionally, I wanted to do a brown colour scheme that incorporated a bit of black and a light brown colour. I got the perfect suit and then decided to utilise a crazy and extravagant hairstyle, which Mieke Grills (the hairdresser) could do extremely well! Which, I was super excited about. We also incorporated a black and light brown ribbon in the models hair, just to give it an extra spice. The only problem we unfortunately faced was that unknowingly Rachel (the model) feared horses; which she didn’t know about until we started working with the horses on the day of the shoot. This of course ruined the visions I had for poses and potential shots I was hoping to capture. Nonetheless, we had to adapt to the situation and even though I was frustrated and disappointed we managed and got the shots; which came out better than I had expected when first learning upon Rachel’s (the model’s) fear of horses. Not only was this photoshoot a huge learning experience, it gave insight on how you can adapt to difficult situations and still get creative! Thanks to everyone who was involved and making this photoshoot and reality.
