Last weekend the WYHW team got together in Putney, VT, with Human Kinetics photographer Neil Bernstein (amazing professional and all around nice guy) plus a small group of dedicated volunteer riders and grooms (thank you all so much!) to shoot the photographs that will illustrate Gincy’s next book, due out in the spring. Here are a few behind the scenes shots from the weekend.
The location is Caryl Richardson’s barn and ring in Putney. We did 260 shots in 3 days – each shot requiring multiple takes, plus different horses, equipment, riders and locations. To get the perfect photo for each shot could take less than a minute, or almost an hour!
The shots covered all kinds of different ground and mounted techniques and equipment, using 6 different horses and 16 models.
Many of these photos are from one sequence, late Sunday afternoon, because no one had time until then to pull out a camera and shoot all the activity, we were too busy being in it!
Despite all the hard work involved, we had a good time, mainly because everyone involved was so cheerful, hardworking and fun to be with. Thank you, everyone!
