As a professional equine photographer, this is one of my favourite books.

Yes there are lots of photographs of model horses, but these are there to explain how to take better images of real horses, and if you do the exercises suggested will go a long way to explaining how to use light and angle the camera for the most flattering image.

Well written, easy to follow and with some lovely pictures - I would recommend this book.

I'm a keen amateur photographer, so the basics of landscapes and portraits (my thing) are OK. However, when my wife acquired her tall, black Arab (horse, not toy-boy) I snapped away happily, but everything looked a bit weird. I was looking for composition and profiles, but she didn't like them (heads too big, too much backside, legs looking strange, etc). I don't know horses, so I don't know what made them look their best. This book was really good. It's simple enough to take you through the subject but doesn't patronise people who already know photography. It was well structured to allow me to skip elements that were well known to me, but put across the key parts of horse photography that helped enormously. I loved the use of horse models, which showed the effects of different aspects (how else do you get an animal to stay so still?), and the photographs were realistic for those of us starting out to be able to relate to. A useful purchase, and now used as a reference as the shots get better.

I bought this book wanting to know how to get stunning horse photos. This book is useful to a degree. It explains how some some lenses can make a horse look distorted ( to the owner- I found some of these hard to see! ). The recommended stance is a profile and there is useful advice about getting ears and feet in the correct position. The author strongly recommends practising with a model horse. A novel idea which I am prepared to try. At least a model will keep still, but type of photo you are able to take would be limited.
I would not say that this is a horse photography 'bible' but it is a useful addition to an animal photographer' s library.

I like this book. It is a useful guide for a photographer unfamiliar with equine photography. Just the right amount of images and text

.Photographing Horses: How to Capture the Perfect Equine Image

I think this was one of the more forgetable books I've owned. I don't think I even kept it. As I remember, many of the photos were of models.
To my way of thinking, if you want to show people how to photograph horses, then you should show photographs of real horses that have been taken in the manner being described.
Far from impressed

Interesting for amateur photographers who may be unfamiliar with horses, but not enough detailed information eg image exf data, for those who are familiar with them and more experienced photographers.
