Welcome to Henry Szwinto Equine Photography.

Horse Portrait Photography by Henry Szwinto 

A little bit about Henry Szwinto Equine Photography.

I have been involved in photography for over 40 years and try to keep a very broad range of work including wildlife, travel and landscapes but I get most reward out of working with people so portraits are always fun for me.  Both my wife and daughter owned and rode horses and so horses have always been part of my life.  They are a natural subject and can look fantastic when photographed well.

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.  Using your best equine photos from our shoot 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 selection of my best images are available on general sale.  Click here to take a look.

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


Last night Aldo in Motion won the “PRINT OF THE YEAR” award and Mario the Whippet was runner up at Southampton Camera Club.  This is a competition of all the photos that had been awarded a Seal of Merit in club competitions during the year and they were up against some lovely photos of all kinds of subjects.  The judge especially loved the control of light and the quality of the print production as well as capturing the essence of the horse’s movement and eye contact of the dog.

This is the way I like to do all of my photography and it’s this attention to detail that you pay for when you commission a photographer.  Is there something I can do for you?

P.S. large format prints and acrylic prints are available from my website. https://www.szwinto.co.uk/equineportraits/product/aldo-in-motion-acrylic-photo/ 

My First Yard Shoots of the Season

How about having some lovely photos?

Now that the world is starting to open up again I’ve been getting lots of enquiries about my photography and it’s great to have got the first couple of Yard Photo Shoots already done for this year.  The first day was very long with a 7.00am start out the front door and not getting back till 9.00pm but we did get to photograph 12 horses.  There is a lot of organisation, travel, setting up and packing away involved in a single photo shoot so if friends can club together it allows me to pass on considerable savings to the individual customers.  The horses are also looking in great shape with their new summer coats so this is a great time of year to photograph them.  Here are some of the photos I took.
