Winter horse photography workshop with Galloping Dreams

What is more majestic than a horse running through a field of freshly fallen snow? Two weekends ago we had the most beautiful we’ve had all winter here in Minnesota. It was sunny and just above freezing. Warm enough to be outside for hours but not too warm for the gorgeous snow to melt rapidly. The perfect day for some horse photography!

I love working with horses but have never had the opportunity to photograph them out in the winter like this. Getting to really dive into photographing several horses in different scenarios was so awesome.

We started the day off letting the group of horses run around on the fresh fallen snow. Once they’d gotten a little exercise we moved in to get some closer photos. They were enjoying rolling around on the snow. After that we gave them a little time to relax and we headed to the barn. We got a few silhouette shots inside. It was a the perfect day for that since their breath really showed up against the window light.

The rest of the workshop was spent photographing the horses with 2 young ladies. Stay tuned for that blog post later this week! It was such a great experience and I thank Rise & Shine Stables for having us on their beautiful property with their gorgeous horses. Also thank you to Katie Nolte of Galloping Dreams Photographing for putting on such a great horse photography workshop.
