your traveling equine photographer.

International portrait & equine photographer based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

"Timeless images of your once-in-a-lifetime horse"

I believe it takes a horse person to truly capture the close connection between a horse and their human. I've been where you are, I understand the fulfillment, worry, the rollercoaster of emotion that is having a heart horse. Your story and partnership is unique, and I want to tell that beautiful story through my images!

I love telling stories of life around me. The people I meet, the animals I cuddle, the small, simple moments of everyday life that are too often forgotten. And I especially love doing so through the images I take. Hi there. My name is Kreeta. I'm a traveling equine photographer based in The Hague, The Netherlands!

I love more things than not, including but not limited to a good night sleep, tea, psychology (which I study), and travel!

The Experience

The Experience

In today's digital age, a handful of images are posted on social media platforms likely to have been forgotten by the time the next generations start searching for their stories. Archival quality albums and wall art on the other hand become family heirlooms, passed on through generations -held dear for years to come. This is why the sessions below include some form of printed product. These sessions are more time-consuming and artful in nature, and deserve to be present in your home in physical form. Additional prints & products can of course always be ordered, also for the session types that typically don't include any. Scroll down to get to know the different collection options available, and even further down for digital-only collections.

NOVEL / all inclusive collection
1250€ 

Not everyone is after printed heirloom products & wall art from every session they get. Branding images have their biggest impact on social media, and sometimes we just want digital memories from day-to-day life to share and savor. Maybe you'd even like to collect a year's worth of images and create a collective album of them! For this purpose, I have created specialized collections for the equine professional, a "short story" portrait collection, as well as a documentary-style take on a moment in time shared by your horse and you. Keep reading to find out more!

Digital Collections 

A small taste of the Kreetales Photography portrait experience! 

The Short Story -collection includes 1 hour of photography time, with your choice of either outdoor Horse & Rider portraits, or black background, fine art style images of your horse alone. Out of a private online gallery you can choose 5 of your favorite digital images! Additional images may be purchased.

-Mia

"We had a really nice photoshoot with Kreeta. She was looking for a horse to do a commision for a client, so I offered her to take pictures of my mare. Besides taking the pictures for her commission, she took the time to take some pictures for me as well! She produced very high quality pictures, and is an excellent photographer with a lot of patience and feel for the horse. I will invite her again to take some more pictures, I can really recommend her!"

-Els

"My heart hurts with how lovely and perfect these pictures are! Absolutely incredible! And the colours!"

Shipping expenses, as well as BTW/VAT is included in all collection and product prices. Travel fees may be added on for sessions, depending on location. The standard travel fee is 0,44€/km from my base locations (such locations differ in Finland). Travel fees will be disclosed before booking and are divided among clients photographed in the same general area.

Are travel fees, shipping & tax included in the prices?

I speak English and Finnish fluently, and have a basic understanding of Dutch. My contracts, invoices, and all business-related communication will take place in English. 

*Suomalaisten asiakkaideni kanssa kommunikaatio, sopimukset, sekä laskut hoidetaan toki mahdollisuuksien mukaan aina suomen kielellä!

What languages do you speak & in which language are the contracts in?

You may use your images on both personal and professional platforms, as long as you do not directly profit from the use of the images.

This means that you can use the images to advertise your person & business in online (website, social media etc.) and printed material (flyers etc.) created by yourself or your team, but you may not sell the images digitally or as a part of a product (such as a calendar). 

Additionally, you may not transfer publication rights to a third party, such as a magazine or a contest. If you are interested in having your images published in a magazine or a contest, please approach me for a separate licensing agreement. 

Can I use the images from my session commercially?

This is the number one question I get asked by my clients before booking, so let me set you at ease! By the time we reach your session date, you will know everything you need to know about getting ready for a photoshoot.

After your booking has been confirmed, I will send over a complete preparation guide to help you in the process. This guide goes over everything from hair, makeup, outfit selection, and color palettes to best preparing your horse. The guide also provides some information on how my sessions generally work and gives numerous helpful tips + tricks for mentally and physically preparing for the experience!

If you still have questions or need help with narrowing down outfit options, we can 100% have a chat about preparation before your session!

How can I best prepare myself & my horse for the session?

100% -no question about it! I have a long background with horses and believe me when I say, I have seen it all. As a professional, I have a number of tips and tricks up my sleeve to make the session a comfortable experience for both people and horses. Horses will always be horses, and I take a very relaxed and patient approach to photographing them. We can always allow an eating/peeing break in the stall to calm down, or give your horse a little lunge to get rid of excess energy. This is also why I reserve up to two hours of photography time for my Horse & Rider -sessions. I always tell my clients that I only need a split second where everything falls into place, and you can trust me to catch that moment!

My horse can be difficult to handle -can we still do a photoshoot?
