In this video, photographer Benjamin Von Wong gives a detailed breakdown on how he went about his photoshoot with Olympic Paradressage Rider, Natasha Baker. It seems that the key to capturing the fantastic images he does is all in the planning and preparation. He says, “I’ve found that planning shots in advance rather than gambling on improvisation skills and taking the time to doodle them out (even though they can be quite ugly at times) are a great way to communicated with your clients or fellow artists the image that you’re trying to create.”
