Here in North Carolina, Dr. Fernando Cardenas and his stallion, Quincy Car, are something of local heroes. They compete at the highest levels of showjumping, and even represented Colombia in the most recent Pan Am games, qualifying them for a trip to Rio.
So it was definitely quite the honor to have them in front of my camera. This was my second shoot with a stallion, and Quincy was fit as a fiddle and just as shiny and conditioned as a horse ever could be.
While I was there, Fernando’s sweet family also joined in on the fun, rounding out a field of highly photogenic subjects!
The other addition to our shoot was a recent import from Denmark, and the latest addition to the 3H team. Calvin is a hunk of a guy, and I definitely couldn’t leave without snagging a couple portraits just of him!
This was a very exciting session for me, and a real treat. Here’s wishing the Cardenas family lots of luck as they compete in Wellington this season!
Happy Friday, everyone!
