Eyehorn Farm, Business Portraits

We recently had the privilege of being asked to take some professional portraits of the extremely glamorous Ksenia Jones, on behalf of the Russian Equestrian Magazine ‘Gold Mustang’.

Ksenia is the Company Director of Eyehorn Farm (www.eyehornfarm.co.uk), a prestigious racing yard in Sittingbourne. Eyehorn Farm hosted the Russian riding team while they were in the country for the London 2012 Olympics, which helped to bring this fantastic facility to the attention of the magazine.

We shot a mixture of indoor setups in the clubhouse and outdoor, more equestrian-themed images.

The trees in the orchard were covered with red apples, which added a wonderful splash of colour!

We took a number of portraits of Ksenia with her very handsome racehorse, ‘Big Whiskey’. He wasn’t quite sure about starring in a photoshoot to start with, but a bit of bribery soon brought him around…

At this point the weather changed for the worse, so we headed indoors to use some more of the interesting spaces. The straw bales in the barn added some great textures, and we used our studio lights for a more polished finish. We were followed in by an army of small dogs, who were totally adorable and all competing for Ksenia’s attention!

We then moved into Eyehorn Farm’s clubhouse, a very luxurious environment to create some striking portraits. Our brief for the shoot was to create glamorous, fashion-style shots, and we were inspired by the colours of the Union Jack in the furnishings and styling…

Ksenia’s formal outfits tied in really well with the patriotic colour scheme, and added a regal edge to the photos…

Lastly, this image is the one that will be featured in the October issue of Gold Mustang! Ksenia looks radiant, and the flash really highlights the shine on her tumbling curls…
