Your ideal client is out there, ready for you to capture portraits that make their horse look like a million bucks while paying you the big bucks (see what I did there? ;))



Learn my proven system for black backgrounds that will attract your ideal client!


Why do black background portraits make so many of us want to cry & throw in the towel?

The first time I opened photoshop I actually cried - like legitimate, puffy, red eye tears.

I know I'm not the only one who feels like this, but I am here to tell you it does NOT have to be this way...

So you get to a black background photoshoot, excited to capture stunning portraits of the horse in front of you buttt...

The horse won't stand still.

The aisle is a mess.

There's light coming from every direction.

And all you can really focus on is how the heck you're going to edit the lead rope out of every one of these shots.

Then you get home, upload your files, and crack open photoshop only to be overwhelmed by the seemingly 6,087 buttons & what the heck any of these really do...

Let me let you in on a little secret though... 

Photoshop is actually like your very own magic trick once you learn the secret recipe ;)


Black backgrounds were the #1 source of revenue & more importantly NEW clients in my business for the first 2 years. 

Black backgrounds have been all the rage in the equine photography world for a few years now & they aren't going to be falling off the face of the Earth any time soon...

Let's be honest - what horse owner DOESN'T want glamour shots of their horse to hang on their walls & post on the 'gram?! 

Are you ready to serve the abundance of clients out there dying to have portraits of their horse, checkbooks in hand?
