Horse Photography

Investment Package

Our first gallery is dedicated to Investment Package. Not because this incredible stallion is a 3-Time World Champion Halter horse, but because the campaign we realized for him represents, on our side, a new way of reading the equestrian photography. More sophisticated, more refined, far from barns and pastures, and closer to a studio and to fashion magazines. Not a golden rule, this must be clear, but surely a desired meeting point between Tristan Dark Horses' reality and the much more artistic approach of Tristan Dark Photography [www.tristandark.com]. The mediatic success of these photos, created in collaboration with Christina Hermann (art direction) and with the For Horses fashion brand, defined the validity of the project and of the necessity of continuously innovating to honor our well known "obession for excellence".

US Legends

During our career we had a chance to work in the United States often, in close contact with some of the world's most pretigious realities. An immense honor, that we hope is well proven by these shots of some of the world's reining and pleasure legends, from the mythical Gunner [Colonels Smoking Gun] to Simmons Show Horses' champions.

RS Nebbiolo Blue

One of the toughest challenges in my career... Hiding the halter from this photos was incredibly complex. Every single fur has been painted. But, as usual, the challenge was won. Glory to the brave!
