Bespoke Horse Portrait Photography by Henry Szwinto

Welcome to Henry Szwinto Equine Photography.

Horse Portrait Photography by Henry Szwinto 

A little bit about Henry Szwinto Equine Photography.  

I’ve had the privilege of photographing some amazing horses and you can see some of the results here.  I hope to make your eyes pop because I am applying my portrait experience to photographing these beautiful animals and the results are different to the usual horse portrait you would normally see.  I can order beautiful acrylic mounted prints to display your stunning horse portrait.  These can come in very large formats.  If you have the home that will take it imagine a life size horse portrait.  For the traditional home I have a full range of canvasses and I also print and frame my horse portrait work up to A2 using a variety of fine art papers.

A bespoke horse portrait provides a lasting memory.  Ring me if you would like a stunning horse portrait of your own.

Photography and horses are 2 different worlds but there’s no reason why they shouldn’t meet.

Christmas Present Equine Portrait Photo Shoot

Last Christmas Lisa was given a present by her sister of a photo shoot of her and Jimmy.  We did the shoot a couple of months ago and this one was chosen to be printed as a fine art dibond.

If you can think of a person that would like a special gift like this for Christmas then why not take a look or why not share this with someone that is looking for ideas of gifts for you?

Equine Photo Shoot Gift Voucher

A Horse named Goose.

horse portrait photography equine portrait

Natasha Blest gave me a great challenge few weeks back.  She wanted a photo of her horse “Goose” which essentially mirrored an image taken of her other horse by another photographer several years ago.  By looking at the previous photo I was able to work out how the lighting was done and we set up in the outdoor school on a windy day which kept blowing my studio lights over.  Anyway this is the result which Natasha was very pleased with and on top of that this scored the perfect 10 out of 10 in the last camera club competition with a seal of merit.  Also the judge said it was his favourite image of the evening.  Thanks Natasha.
With Christmas coming up could a photo shoot make a great present?

Photos with Charlotte

These are a few recent photos from a shoot with Charlotte Elliott and Trooper.  We started outside in the early morning light before switching to indoors with studio lights.  Charlotte and Trooper having been doing well in competition recently and it was clear that since my last shoot with them Trooper was looking stronger and his movements were more consistent.  When shooting movement with studio lights consistency helps with the timing.

Foals at Dawn.

I was out early this morning trying to photograph some rather un-obliging fallow bucks.  This foal reacted like he had never seen a person with a camera before.  His back lit fluffy main and chin fluff saved the day.

Playing with my new lens

I had just taken delivery of my new wildlife lens so I thought I would go over the local pond and try it on a few swallows but then along came Christina riding western on Braveheart, her lovely Rocky Mountain horse.  Quite a good test fro a 400mm handheld shot.  Very different to my normal equine portrait lens but I still find a 400mm useful when trying to photograph horses that like to crazy when they are first turned out
