Region 13 Photography with Jeff Janson Equine Photography


Mike and I were both on the road last week at the Arabian/Half Arabian Region 13 Championship show in Springfield OH. Friday it poured buckets of rain all day, but (lucky for me) I can still feature some amazing photos in my blog post. Certainly not through any skill of my own, but rather because Jeff Janson is the official show photographer for Region 13! At this particular show that means pictures by not only Jeff, but Mary Janson and Mike as well.

One of the really fun aspects about working the booth for Jeff Janson Photography is that the Booth Gal (i.e. She-Who Runs the Sale Booth) is the person that hears all the comments! The "oohs and aahs" and (I kid you not) the occasional gasp when people get their first look at their proofs! OMG is frequently heard as well.

Saturday afternoon was a perfect example. Several groups of people commented on the fact that, in addition to fantastic win photos, there are really unique art shots as well.

Jeff really enjoys creating lighting designs for each arena, and each ring presents challenges. As a rule, Jeff provides 2 to 3 photographers for the main ring of a Regional or National Championship show.

Each photographer has their own angles and "shoot" zone and each of those has specific lighting to create the different effects that you see in a Jeff Janson photo.
