Erin Gilmore Photography Equestrian photographer available for private commissions and photoshoot bookings.

As an equestrian journalist for over 15 years, I've always followed my passion for telling the stories in equestrian sport, whether it be through the written word or images. With a specialty in show jumping, I've covered two Olympics, World Championships, many World Cups, and every competition in between. My focus on photography began in 2012 at the London Olympic Games and continues to evolve and develop. For me, there is nothing better than the constant pursuit to capture the perfect image. Whether I'm shooting a major sporting event or photographing a subject in quiet solitude, I do it in my own unique way to produce images with meaning and emotion that you won't forget. I'm available for private commissions and photoshoot bookings. I am based in Wellington, Florida, USA, and I can easily travel to your location.

Seven days, nine stables, 1,297 kilometers, three countries and 33 horses photographed. Today’s group was a stellar one that included this fabulous grey named Kill Bill! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ“Έ

Thank you to all the awesome barns that welcomed me this week, I will now be locked in the editing room for the forthcoming future 😬

Preview for you @vickyklatte - it’s so amazing working with Twilight, if I had to pick a favorite stallion in Germany it is him, no question!
Twilight gave me the lucky one in a million neck twist shot when I photographed him two years ago as a five year old. Now, at seven, he is greying out and is more gorgeous than ever 🀩. Many more to come! #horseportrait #photoshoottime

Day three in Europe was another super busy and productive one! Today we were with @cavalor_horsenutrition in Belgium at the Philippaerts impressive home stable, where the fall colors look like this 😍 and many product photos were made. After a stop to visit some young horses we ended the day at a beautiful small stable nearby for portraits πŸ˜πŸ“ΈπŸ˜΄

So next week I’m returning to this farm in Europe. When I was there exactly two years ago I did what you usually do at amazing farms in Europe and visited with the adorable herds of weanlings and yearlings. I was thinking today, how cool would it be if I get to see the grown up versions of these guys when I return. It’s a big place but I’ll certainly be looking out for this guy and the other young horse faces in my stories. Extra points if you recognize the farm on your own πŸ˜‰

It doesn't get any more peak fall than this! Opening meet with the Orange County Hounds 🦊. Attempting to follow the hunt from a car was an interesting/nervewracking first time experience! But what a setting in the open country around Middleburg.

🌟 Model (horse) call!! 🌟
In search of a locally based Middleburg/Leesburg-area equine & his/her accommodating owner who fit the following description:
A "pure" dressage horse (sorry, eventers) that is fit and show ready, that can and has worn a double bridle, for a brief bridle photoshoot. No riding, just stand there, look pretty & get rewarded!

🌟 For your time you get a brand new free bridle & some amazing photos of your horse. Know someone who fits this description? Please send me a message + share + tag them here ~

Heels Down Happy Hour Podcast 58: Why Are Horse Shows So Flippin' Expensive? - Heels Down Mag

I was asked onto the latest Heels Down Podcast to talk about horse show costs - Morven Park gets a shout out - what it was like for me as an amateur rider outside of a high priced training program attempting to do the hunters this year. . . I do believe I used the word "punishing" πŸ˜† . . . my interview starts at 17:00, check it out!

Horse show costs can be daunting, depending on the level you ride at. But are we pricing out some competitors with all these exorbitant fees?

Well, that escalated quickly πŸ’‹

Next month’s trip to Europe is now fully booked with only a tiny bit of wiggle room during the week of Nov. 10-15! Belgium/Holland/Germany, I’m coming for you! I’ll be driving all over the place in what I hope will be a fun rental car so if you’re interested in horse + human portrait sessions, let’s talk to see if I can squeeze you in

"I’m just grateful that there is another option out there for those of us mere mortals who long ago accepted that USEF-sanctioned shows are priced for the 1%."
