How to photograph Dressage

This is a post for Members.

Dressage is a stylish and accurate discipline which deserves our attention as photographers. However it also presents challenges which put off a lot of photographers who can’t get the timing of their shots right or spend time trying to photograph movements which are hard or impossible to shoot in a way which flatters the horse and rider.

In this post we will discuss how to photograph dressage effectively and what you need to do it effectively.

We will look at the priority list for choosing your position from which to photograph dressage, as well as which movements we want in order of importance. This is based, not only on experience from shooting dressage events, but also from market research where I actually asked riders of all levels what they wanted photographs of.

We will look at how to set your camera up to best capture the correct moment in each movement or gait.

We will study the timing required to photograph particular dressage movements and the missed timings which should not be published!

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.
