On Location

With a narrow aisle available with these beautiful yucca plants in the background we got a nice bright and clean background to contrast the colors in the products. Its always a treat to find a spot like this in California.

“Product shoot locations are rarely if ever ideal, especially when horses are involved. Finding that magical setting in what may seem like an impossible location takes a keen eye.  If you can make those situations look pretty, the sky is the limit on what can be achieved in a truly gorgeous setting.” 

“The person behind the camera is what really matters”

“Like so many, life carried me far away from the horse world. The camera brought me back.”
