FINE ART EQUINE PHOTOGRAPHY
BY MATTHEW SEED
THE HORSE PHOTOGRAPHER
In the world of fine art photography, Matthew Seed is acknowledged as one of the leading practitioners in equine portraits. His work, which has been exhibited at home and abroad, has earned favourable comparisons with those of history’s leading painters, including George Stubbs and Théodore Géricault, who have chosen to make the beauty of horses their principal theme.
Matthew’s artistic studies are the product of true craftsmanship. A mastery of the camera honed over more than two decades as a successful fashion photographer and an even longer affinity with his equine subjects mean that he is able to realise truly exclusive pieces in the blink of an eye, using a pioneering and skilful mix of natural and artificial light without relying on post production software.
It is no wonder then that he is commissioned by royals and celebrities across the globe to capture a lasting and unique impression of the majesty of the horse.
