Guidelines for taking photos:
It is best just to spend a bit of time around your animal with the camera. If it is a horse, following it around the field at a distance can get some very good results. Even if you want a head shot, take some photos of the whole body, as these can be cropped in at a later date. For small animals, try to get on the same level as them so the angle is not affected by looking down on them. Similarly, try not to look up at horses.
Try to get the animal in good light - not to bright or too dark. If the flash comes on, turn it off so the eyes can still be seen. The flash also gives a colour which is not true of the animal. The background of the photo does not matter as long as the animal itself is clear.
Make sure that the photo you send in is clear, not too small and accurate in colour in order to achieve the best results.
Photos must not be copyright, unless written permission from the photographer has been obtained. This must be enclosed with the order.
