ELEVATING HORSE SHOW PHOTOGRAPHY TO FINE ART
Introducing "Showpieces" - a unique collaboration that blurs the line between competition photography and show stopping fine art. This custom process transforms captivating horse show images shot by Bethany P Photography into one-of-a-kind works of art collaboratively edited with master retoucher Beth Chadbourne of Pictorial Tales Photography.
These works of art ensure every detail and every emotion of your show is preserved forever in the most extraordinary way. The final hand painted canvas is a more elegant method of display beyond a framed show print.
