equine fine art

Capture your horse’s class and beauty in a stunning portrait on a black, white or watercolour background. These images make for timeless pieces of art to share with your loved ones in your home or online. Your selected images are edited with meticulous detail by hand. 

These sessions require a shaded area. This may be a barn, shed, or even a carport!

All collections include an online welcome pack, travel and session time, print product credit and digital credit. 

Price reductions are available for bookings from four or more equestrians at one location, with the organising host receiving a special discount.

Fine Art sessions are available as an add on to any Horse & Rider session for a reduced price.

horse & rider

My favourite session to photograph, this photoshoot highlights the adoration you feel for your horse. What better way to immortalise your connection and reflect your shared history than through images which will bring you joy forever more? 

Let's work together to find the perfect experience for you, including costumes and locations!

 

These shoots are usually scheduled during sunset to give you and your furbaby (or furbabies!) a gorgeous glow. But even on an overcast day, we will give you beautiful images to treasure.

remember me

Whether we need to say au revoir as our partners start a new chapter in their life, or say farewell as they gallop over the rainbow bridge, we always want to cherish the memories with our horses. A ‘Remember Me’ session can help ease you through your loss by giving you images which immortalise your bond with your equine partner. 

Rainbow bridge sessions will experience a 10% price reduction on compassionate grounds. Equine Fine Art and background replacements not included as part of this session. Please note that turnaround times may be slightly longer than a standard session, due to the tendency for sessions to happen on short notice.

bring your art to life through print

All of the above sessions include a print product credit which may be used on any product except acrylic blocks. Products include archival wall art, albums and more, hand-made here in Australia.

Print credit may also be used towards any product collections on offer.

important information

Travel

30 minutes of travel each way is included, which will cover most parts of the Hills & Hawkesbury. Other travel, tolls or accomodation costs will be negotiated. 

Note that it is a requirement of all sessions that the client has a willing assistant to support in posing the horse. Alternatively, Half Steps Photography may supply an assistant at the rate of $25 per hour - rates cover the assistant's session time and travel fee. This must be arranged prior to the session. The session and retainer will be forfeited should the photographer arrive and the client is unaccompanied after agreeing to source a helper.
