The Golden Stallion

Here is the video I shot in Spain of the golden Stallion Pearl Of Peace ahead of my 3 day shoot.

It was a unique experience to study a horse in such a way, almost like a painter may take preliminary sketches to better understand their subject.

That night in my hotel room I studied over 2 hours of footage in total to fully understand this unique horse. It was fascinating to see how the sun light effected his beautiful golden coat and it really prepared me for the shoots ahead. It also totally changed my opinion of what lighting modifiers would work and which would not work and that really surprised me.

27 years into this career of mine and I am still refining my craft in order to fully master flash lighting with horses. All this preparation I feel was very much worth the time and I can not wait to launch these images later this week.
