Pacote Fine ART

Photo Session

In the past few years, my black backgrounds have become a signature style and very much in demand.
One of the first photos that ask me to capture in any session is usually a “black background” portrait.
I’m developing a style that captures not only the character of the horse or pony in front of my lens, but also a way to create a real piece of art, something different from the typical portrait.
Often an abstract image can also be very interesting.
These mini sessions will create a custom piece of art, with your horse as your theme.
From the soft expression, to the whiskers on the velvety nose, the swirl of hair between the eyes.
These are sessions about the little details that make your horse yours.
In addition, the most traditional poses will be taken.
Manipulate natural or artificial light around you to paint a fine art photographic portrait, capturing your horse’s shape, markings and soul.
It is not capturing what the camera sees, but what your heart sees.
