Black Background Photoshoots

My Black Background photoshoots have become increasingly popular over the years and can often be found proudly displayed on customers walls around their home. These sessions are perfect for capturing striking photos of your horse or horses looking their best and are created without the use of any artificial lighting. All we need to create a Black Background photo is a barn, stable or indoor school with access to natural lighting from the outside. Each photo is taken in a certain way to achieve this artistic effect and I will help you position your horse in the most eye-catching way, ensuring that every photo is special to you. If you're looking to have a mixture of photos taken and would like to include some Black Background photos, please take a look at my equine photoshoot packages.

Below you will find a summary of what is included in the Black Background photography package. The package comes with the flexibility to photograph up to three horses. If you have four or more horses, there would be an additional cost of £30 to include an extra 30 minutes. Lots of examples from previous Black Background photoshoots can be found below and my diverse photoshoot products price list can be found online to browse at your leisure. I now offer a payment plan option for any of my photoshoots valued at £100 or over. A small transaction fee will apply, please click here to find out more.

Since I started my photography business, I have attended over 100 photoshoots and built up a large & diverse portfolio, which I am delighted to be able to share with you. Below is a slide show of my favourite Black Background photoshoot images for you to scroll through. You can also view the photos in a gallery style window by clicking here.


Recently, I photographed the lovely Max for his owners! It was a brilliant photoshoot where we managed to capture some stunning Black Background photos at the end of Max's barn. Here's what Molly had to say after seeing the final photos. If you'd like to view more testimonials, please click here.

"We had an amazing equine photoshoot done by Caitlin, and could not recommend it enough. Caitlin was lovely, suggested some great locations and had plenty of tricks up her sleeve to get the dreaded ears forward! The photos are absolutely stunning and the biggest problem is working out which are our favourites! Thank you!"
