Showjumping Equine family portrait |Professional Horse Photographer |Tipperary |Ireland
April 3rd, 2014

This Equine Showjumping family photoshoot was commissioned as a Surprise gift for the childrens parents and grandparents. I wish I’d videoed this shoot as we had such fun photographing it. We used Tipperary Equestrian Centres Showjumping Indoor arena and I used my Studio lit ‘Signature Lighting’ emphasising the beautiful confirmation of their ponies and the gorgeous children. The children adore their ponies and were so excited during the shoot that I was capturing them with their life long friends.

Equine portrait of Showjumping horse ‘Mrs Quinn’ | Ireland Professional Horse photographer

Equine portrait Mrs Quinn Greg Broderick Caladonia stables

This commissioned professional Equine portrait of Top Showjumping Horse and prolific winner, “Mrs Quinn” who partnered Ireland’s top International show jumping rider, Greg Broderick of Ballypatrick Stables to many of his National wins.
Mrs Quinn was a fantastic mare to photograph. She adores Gregs sister Cheryl and was a supermodel for us during the photoshoot. I used my signature studio lighting set up as it really highlights her gorgeous compact confirmation.

Mrs Quinn
13 yo b m
Sire: Laughton’s Flight
Dam: Kyle flower
Owner: Caledonia Stables
Breeder: John Doyle
“Mrs Quinn is a typical Irish horse with a huge heart and a real fighter in the ring. She has a quirky personality and she’s not a lover of the farrier or the clipping machine, but we get around her. She was bought in Cavan sales as a five-year- old and campaigned in Canada under Alan Kruger before returning to Ireland as an 11 year-old. It took a while to get to know each other but we have formed a very good partnership.
She is a full sister to International showjumping mare Shannondale, so its exiting to see what her foals will be like.
“Since competing at Grand Prix level in Ireland she has clocked up numerous wins”

This was an equine commission from Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show of sisters Charolette and Sarah Jane with their beautiful horses at their home. The girls were fantastic to work with. We had glorious evening light. When I arrived the girls were wearing beautiful blue dresses, the opposite in the colour wheel to brown is blue. It was a great fun session for me and we even took a few family photos with the girls parents & brother as well.

The girls Mum helped behind the scenes at the session.  You can imagine how much work goes into cleaning tack, clipping and washing horses for a photo session:)

I used my signature studio lighting to enhance the conformation of the horses

Family portraits Ireland Tipperary Ni Riain Photography

This family equine portrait was taken on the beautiful laneway of trees on their family farm in Fethard Co. Tipperary. This lovely couple I met at the Dublin Horse Show/. On arriving the trees and light caught my eye. When deciding which way to photograph I always look at the light direction and then view from various angles.  I love frames with in frames when taking photographs. It forces your eye to the brightest part of a photograph. I walked up and down the avenue to get the right light and placement. I was mesmerised by the trees and rustic Irish setting that evening. The winter light is a low angle and I used it as backlight. The studio lights worked as fills and to highlight the ponies coats and confirmation.

It was photographed on their grandparents farm which had the most beautiful old trees which were cover in lichen (a sign of pure air). When the evening light hit the trees and ponies coats – it was picture perfect

Horse photographer Ireland- Showjumping photos in Newtownards Northern Ireland
October 23rd, 2013

Ireland Horse photography Equine Photographers Ni Riain

It was a beautiful day in Newtownards Northern Ireland when I photographed this showjumper and her horse. The area around her home was very picturesque with lovely old trees in the paddock.

When I arrive at a shoot, before I ever start taking photos I not only have to introduce myself to the people involved but also the horse. That time is the key to relaxed portraits. I then walk around the areas and study the light and decide both the angles and composition.

I really enjoyed balancing the studio lights with the available lights in the full lenght photo. The air was so pure the bark of the old tress was covered in lichen, I very subtly rake lit the bark, with out this the bark would have gone dark and their true beauty would have been lost.

Her parents were fantastic assistants on the shoot and made the morning so relaxed and hospitable. When I look back on the Summer of 2013 this morning will hold a special place

Equine portraits – Magheralin Northern Ireland

These portraits were commissioned by Danielle’s Grandmother Betty at Tattersalls International Horse Trials as a gift.

The Showjumping Rosettes caught my eye when they opened the tack room. It summed up the hours spent together showjumping. The red diagonal stripe in her polo shirt connects them to the rosettes. I put an accent light on the horse to light the shadow side.

The light on the long grass caught my eye in the field behind her home and backlighting is my favourite lighting. Seems a simple portrait but timing the walk with the horse and the flow of the girls hair took a few attempts.

Irish Horse Breeders Irelands top award winning equine photograp

This is one of the lovely commissions from Dublin Horse Show of a Father and daughter who both work with young horses in breaking them for top owners and show jumpers in Rhode Co. Offaly. This beautiful avenue of trees was beside their home. I think every stable yard has a terrier as the ‘top’ dog to supervise.
