The prices below are guidelines for a single day of photography. Multiple days, and scenarios that don't fit any of the parameters below will be priced to fit specific situations.
Travel expenses are additional if the trip is more than 1 hour each way, and may include mileage, airfare, hotels, parking, rental car, and/or transportation of equipment, as applicable.
Any photo session that requires more than 2 hours travel each way will be billed as either a Half Day or Full Day Photo Session, depending on the number of horses. A photo session that requires air travel specifically for the session will be billed as a Full Day Photo Session for the actual day of shooting.
Number of horses/scenes that can be photographed in a day: Portraits, liberty, under saddle are each considered a scene. If you are efficient in your planning and set up, allow 20-40 minutes per scene. It is the rare horse that can sparkle in both a liberty session and an under saddle session in one day. 10-12 scenes is usually realistic for a full day session. Any more than that, and some horses will have to be photographed during the unflattering light of midday. Locations that are at separate farms or environs will of course reduce the number of scenes that can be photographed in a day.
