'Gym Horse' Series

Landscape, series

This series, like the ‘Bench’ series, provides a wide range of possibilities for creative artistic models. The horses are heavy and well built, and allow a range of gymnastics to be accomplished whilst giving the re-assurance that they are not going to fall over. Because they are padded leather, they also provide a relatively comfortable base to support the figure.
The use of a gym horse gives a natural advantage to models that have done some gymnastics training, even if that was in the distant past. For obvious reasons strength poses are transient and some practice and planning is helpful to capture such images.

Those who can harness the solidity of the horse, as well as its shape, can create poses that would otherwise be impossible. The result can be a fusion of grace, strength and imagination.
These images were taken in our home studio using studio lighting and a Canon 5D camera.
