Dear Charles,

The mobile lab concept is the only way that I can envision anyone making a living photographing horses at shows. I have had a mobile lab since I started in the 1950's, and I was the first photographer to produce color photos in a mobile unit.

There is always room for a good photographer in our business. You need to charge a fair price and deliver exactly what you promise. I recommend using a 120mm camera and a professional strobe, so that you can photograph both indoor and outdoor shows and have a decent size proof for potential customers to view.

If you need any specific advice on film, or equipment please check my website in the question section or write me again.
