Frequently Asked Questions       & Answers!
 

 

 

  • Where are you located?  I currently reside in Middleburg, FL.  If you are located out of state and are interested in photography options for a Wedding or Equestrian Event contact me directly to discuss options.
     

 

  • How much will a CD of my images cost?   A Photo CD with your images on it is $250.00 this includes exclusive Copyright release to print and use your images anyway you want.
     

 

  • The photography package I want says it last one hour, when does that hour start?  Ideally, the hour starts when you scheduled time begins; just like a lesson!  Though I understand with animals (and children), sometimes unforeseen circumstances prevent this.  If your scheduled from 3-4 I will start shooting as close to your scheduled appointment time as possible.  I will arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to familiarize myself with the location, and offer assistance if it is needed in helping you prepare.  If there is an unexpected delay before the start of your appointment time please let me know as soon as possible!   In the event that your appointment will run over, or interfere with another client's schedule time slot you may be asked to reschedule for a later date.

 

  • My appointment is scheduled for 2, but my horse rolled/is running away from me in a huge field/is trying to buck me off-- does this mean my appointment is ruined?   No.  Horse's are, well horses!  And sometimes despite the best laid plans they just don't cooperate!  I'm a horse person myself with 24 years of horse experience, I know this all too well!  If you run into problems before your appointment please call me so we can discuss our options!! 

 

  • How do I schedule a photo horse photography session?  All you have to do is ask!  I love talking about horses, and I love photographing them!  You can message me on FB, Send me an Email at: E_A_Photography@Outlook.com Send me a text or call at 904-962-6668.  Tell me what you envision so we can make it a reality!
     

 

  • I have two, three, four kids (bless you, you brave soul!) that all ride and I want to get photos of them; do I have to pay for a session for each child?  No.  If you have multiple kids that ride, or if your whole family rides we can photograph everyone at the same time!  Extra time can be added to any equestrian or family portrait session to accommodate your families size or needs.

 

  • I'm a certified horse trainer looking for photos to promote my business, Can I use your photos on my personal website or ad?  Photos on Equestrian Aficionado are under artist copyright until purchased with a copyright release, if you are looking for photos to use please contact me to discuss options.
     

 

  • Do you have a portfolio that I can look through in person, besides the galleries available online?  Unfortunately carting around 6,000+ photos with me would be nearly impossible to do, not to meantion costly to print! Every gallery on my site is open to the public unless requested by the client.  Simply Select 'All My Photos' from the menu to view my previous and current portraits.
     

 

  • I'm going to a horse show at 'X' Why can't you take photos of me there?  Most large horse shows have an "Official Show Photographer" which means the vender there has paid for the exclusive right to take your photos at that event and then sell them to you.  If you would like 'Show' photos but hate the thought of shelling out 50 dollars for a single 8x10 consider having portraits done with your horse braided and your show clothes on at your home facility or even at the horse park or other location.
     

 

  • I scheduled a photo session to do riding photos and my horse's pasture mate spent all this week biting him, will this ruin my photos?  No, minor scratches, scrapes, and bites are a part of horse photography and can be edited out of your final images.

 

  • I scheduled a photo session but now my horse is lame, can I reschedule?  Yes, You can reschedule.  Horse's don't always work on our schedule; anyone who's ever missed a big show because of a thrown shoe knows that!  If you find that your horse is not sound for riding on the day of your session please call me as soon as possible!  We can reschedule your appointment based on your horse's needs.

 

  • The package description says you'll travel within "X" miles before a mileage charge, how is this calculated?  The mileage charge is calculated using area code 32068, please contact me with the address you would like to use for your portraits if you have any questions regarding milage charges.
     

 

  • I have a horse! I also have some short people that keep calling me Mom/Dad; will you take photos of them too?  Children?  Yes, I  can photograph them too!  To see sample Family Photography and Children Portrait options please go here.

 

  • How do I pay for my session?  I accept payments in cash, personal check, or money order; you may also pay online using a PayPal account to purchase your session with a credit card.  (Please Note you will be charged an additional returned check fee of 35.00 for non-payment and your photos will not be released until payment is made in full.)  If you wish to pay using PayPal please let me know before your appointment so that I may send you an invoice prior to your scheduled session.
     

 

  • There are photos on your website of me/my horse and I'd like a copy of them all, how do I do this?  Individual photos can be purchased off the website as prints or digital downloads directly from the gallery they are listed in.  If there are several images you would like a copy of contact me for CD or multiple download package options.
     

 

  • There are photos of my child/me/my horse and I'd like them removed! How can I make this happen?  This sometimes happens when shooting in a public place! If you or your horse have been photographed on-location and you would like the image removed from a public gallery please send me an email with the gallery name, and photograph number(s) and I will work promptly with you to resolve the matter.

 

  • I'm trying to sell a horse and I need good photos for my ad, Can you help me?  Yes!  Trying to sell a horse in any economy (let alone this one!) is tricky business!  Great photos can do a lot of the talking for you!  Please contact me for fees and rights to use photos for horse ads/business advertising purposes.  Please do not copy images from galleries for your ad, this is stealing and makes your photographer cry.
     

 

  • Do you do Family/children Portraits?  Yes, I offer informal/candid style portraits of families and children of all ages.  I do not offer  'Studio' photography as I find this type of portrait to be too rigid and forced especially with children.

 

  • Looking for a Wedding Photographer?   I am happy to do Bridal portraits before or after your special day, Engagement Sessions, Trash the dress photos, and 1st anniversary portraits and Weddings.  Please contact me for date availability.
     

 

  • Is there a deposit required for Wedding Photography?   Yes, reserving a date for your Wedding requires a  20% deposit.  Payment plans are available for Wedding packages.  Full payment of the remaining balance is due two weeks before the event date.
