So, I've finally decided to start writing a little bit about my photoshoots, and mainly those I create for my portfolio. Some of you who have followed me for a while knows that every spring and autumn I have a photoshoot with handpicked horses and a model. Tomorrow will be the 4th model shoot and I thought I'd try something a little bit different :)
The previous shoots have all been kind of romantic, with girls in pretty dresses. This is going to change. I have found a gorgeous, alternative model with lots of beautiful tattoos. She goes under the name "Marion Massacre" and lives here in Oslo. Sounds a bit more drastic than it is ;) The look and feel of the photos should be a bit more playful and maybe even dark at times. But mainly we're just looking to have some fun! The result will hopefully reflect on that.
Marion has worked as a model for several years, and I'm looking forward to learning from her experience. Allthough she does not have any particular experience with horses, so maybe we'll have to teach her a thing or two aswell ;) The horses participating in this shoot is the wonderful P.R.E (Pura Raza Espanõla) Baco and the very handsome Pinto Duke.
Baco is quite the youngster. He's 6 years old and was imported from Spain 2 years ago by his owner Lisa. She uses him for Academic riding, treks, liberty training and a little bit of classic dressage.

Duke is a 12 year old gelding owned by Thea. Duke is rather versatile as Thea uses him for Academic riding, show jumping, carriage and treks :) Thea has had him for a little more than 2 years.

- Hopefully they'll go easy on Marion ;)
