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
