Photographing animals – in this case horses – is not always an easy task. They have a mind of their own, and when that mind controls a 600kg body, it’s important to keep them entertained and still. Especially when they’re surrounded by big lights and backgrounds in a studio! That results in quite the effort from the humans, who jumps around, waves with plastic bags, lures with both bananas and crackers and other funny actions.

I have collected some of my best “behind the scenes” shots from one of my studio days with western horses, who are quite difficult to faze! I hope you’ll enjoy them, and maybe even shed a laugh or two, admiring all the creative ideas to get those ears forward! In the end is the finished result of all the hard work.
