How to photograph cross country fences

Introduction to cross country photography

In this Members Only post I will discuss how to photograph cross country in general and, more specifically, the different ways to photograph particular types of cross country fence.

If you are gaining experience by working for an event photographer - and I highly recommend this to accelerate your learning curve - then some of the decisions laid out in this article will be taken for you. You will be placed where they want you and asked to take a particular shot, but there are still factors consider to make the shot as sellable as possible.

I will outline the general differences in how I would photograph fences, depending on whether my client is an editorial client, a rider client, or a sponsor.

“Working” the course is something experienced equine photographers refer to. This article will explain what that means and how to plan for your day on cross country to make the most of the light and the course.

We will examine the hierarchy of control on the cross country course, in case we need permission to use remote cameras or operate from areas which are more unusual.

We will discuss each type of cross-country fence and how we might photograph them to make the most of the features and shape of the fence.

About Nico

I am an equine photographer, website designer and hosting provider living in Lincolnshire.

I work with clients who are sole traders and others which are FTSE companies. They are equally important to me.

If you need commercial photography, editorial photography, event photography, lifestyle, equestrian or wedding photography, then I can help you, with over 30 years experience in these areas.

I also teach photography. I mentor photographers with a range of experience, from beginners to working professionals and run an equine photography course which gives members access to articles about the business of equestrian photography.

I have a varied set of skills, having worked for well known web design and web analytics companies in parallel to my photography.

I design, host and maintain websites for clients as varied as farms, interior designers and equestrian centres, as well as for bloggers and sportspeople, including many riders.

I am the Public Relations Officer for the Midlands Point-to-Point Association, a role which utilises my PR and social media skills to promote horse racing both online and in the National press.

If you think that I could be the right person to help you, whatever your project, then please get in touch and we can discuss what you need and the ways in which I can help.
