The story behind my pictures of mustang horses and so much more.
Sainte-Marie-de-la-Mer, evening. I have been photographing horses for about four years or so- It never gets old. My heart beats so much faster, my senses become heightened. I can see, feel and sense more when I am in the presence of animals. Every moment also feels like a blessing. My family and friends notice a difference when I return from a wildlife shoot, I feel reborn, It’s always a privilege to photograph these creatures.
Firstly, these two were just playing around. I was also sitting in putrid mud, but I loved every minute of it, just like these two did.
In conclusion, get one with nature; HEAVEN IS ON EARTH.

The sun was descending over the horizon as I came upon some wild horses grazing on saltwater grass.
Two things could have happened; I could have ended up in the ER or ended up with an image like this one.

How to take black and white pictures of mustang horses — tips and also techniques
Equine photography is no magic trick, everyone can take a decent horse picture, but the key to good horse pictures is spending time understanding the horse believer. All animals get a very good sense on our energy, so if we are not comfortable or are scared around them, they will pick up on this energy and react the same way. Treat the horse as a close friend be friendly, make it comfortable around your camera equipment before you start to take photographs, hold the camera and lens in your hand, press the shutter button few times to get the horse familiar with the shutter sound, if it does not like the sound start from far let it get used to it then approach it slowly and you will be amazed by the equine photography you achieve.
Remember if horse photography is your goal, then it’s your job to make your subject is very very comfortable.
