Witcombe Farm Stables – Jen & Sophie

Something a bit different on the blog this weekend!  I needed a little bit of assistance for a photo-shoot that I have coming up in the next couple of months that will involve photographing a horse.  Thankfully, my able assistants Jen and Sophie very kindly offered to be my models for the morning!

As with all my portraits (whether involving humans, animals or inanimate objects!), I really want to get to know the subject and the environments that I’ll be shooting in, so I always go the extra mile to get a bit of ‘practice’ in beforehand.

I think Sophie set the benchmark very high though as she was impeccably well behaved and did everything that Jen asked her to do…I almost wish some human models were this co-operative!  Here are just a few shots from our session on a rare beautiful wintery morning at Witcombe Farm near Gloucester.
