Equine Fine Art Photograph of Bugs the Horse For Coup Detat.

Not just for hay.

I was recently asked to photograph a horse inside a showroom, the client, Coup d’tat, is an interior design showroom that features an visual ethic that I like to  call ‘steampunk meets industrial design chic’. However, while the white bookshelf in the image is more Kubrik than Steampunk, I feel the the over look of the showroom is still fitting of my description.

The shoot was for an ad featured in California Home and Design and Chrysta Giffen of CG retouching did an outstanding job combing three variations into one final image. Great work Chrysta!

If the term Steampunk doesn’t ring a bell, one of favorite all time movies, ‘City of Lost Children’, is a good example as are the visuals described by the 18th century science fiction author, Jules Verne. My client wanted to feature the white bookshelf unit, one of a pair, that were custom built in the 80’s for the Macy family. The one of kind pair of bookshelves have a $300,000 price tag and it was obvious that Bugs, the horse, sincerely appreciated his fancy feeder..

And a behind the scenes video of the photo shoot as well can be seen here.
