Celebrating the Horse Through Art

For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.
~ Henri Cartier-Bresson

Art Equidae offers photography services for personal or commercial use.

☆  Portrait photography of you and your horse at your stable or on location.

☆  One-on-one exclusive service at a horse show or clinic.

☆  Commercial shoots to serve your business. Stableyards, breeds, stallions, mares and foals. 

Equine photography is my specialization. Since 2010 my lens has focused on photographing horses and riders in Canada and Europe.

My technical training includes two years of photography coursework, at the University of Alberta, Canada, and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

I love to photograph horses and their people! I am passionate about capturing creative, beautiful and timeless images. In my work I strive to catch the unique essence of things, whether it be your passion for your sport, your horse's distinctive personality, or the very special bond that you share with your equine friend. I take pride in meticulous presentation, and in delivering a timeless, quality product.

Contact Diana at Art Equidae to book your photo shoot. I look forward to working with you to create artistic, engaging, and meaningful images.


Art Equidae is based in the horse captial of British Columbia - Langley, Canada. The presented service charges are calculate for photography projects within Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

Time Factor

☆ I take a lot of pride and care in the images that I present and therefore spend a great deal of time selecting and editing photos before presentation to the client.


☆ Location is an important factor in your photo shoot. Location tells a story, and evokes sentiment and mood. Sessions can take place at your stableyard, along your favourite trail, or at a picturesque location such as a beach, field, or park, or horse show.
☆ Within your choice location we will make use of various perspectives, moving around to capture different light effects, and backgrounds.

Event Photography

If you are interested in booking a photography session at an equine clinic or horse show, please contact me in advance, as my photography services are only available at events where I work closely with the show committee and facility management. Event photography must be booked early, so that I can guarantee my services, and ensure that the appropriate accredation has been obtained.

Creative Vision

☆ Photoshoots can focus exclusively on the rider, or solely on the horse. Or we can capture images of the unique relationship that you share with your equine friend.
☆Consider props and accessories that you might like to include to personalize your images.
☆ Bring as many outfits and tack changes as you like.


☆ If rain is imminent on the day of your photo shoot, I am happy to re-schedule. Sometimes clients have to re-schedule multiple times, but it always works out in the end!
