Hannahs beautiful equine portraits awarded her an Associateship in 2018. An established equine photographer for over 10 years, she is going to be sharing her tips and tricks of creating beautiful fine art portraits of horses. She is a great example of someone finding their niche market and defining a strong client base - this workshop is worth attending not only if you are working with animals, but looking to find your own niche. This will be a practical demo and tutorial with horses on location.
