Last February I participated in a workshop held by Elizabeth Knight in Post Falls, ID. She had beautiful equine models for the workshop lined up... an Appy named May, an Andalusian named Damsel, and a Friesian named Raphael. They were all gorgeous and such great models! Merissa Clark modeled with Raphael in a blue dress towards the end of the workshop, sitting on him bareback bridleless.
We did black background photos with May and Damsel, then horse + rider portraits with Raphael and Merissa, then some liberty shots with Raphael running through the pasture with the perfect backdrop!
