Christophe Tanière

Totally foreign to the equestrian world, Christophe Tanière first learned photography on his own for sectors such as industry or marriage. It only took one photoshoot realized by chance with horses for him to get the revelation which was going to change his career. Touched by their sensibility, he dedicates now his time to capture their expressions, with an angle and a look that are unique to him. It is this singularity, that makes him one of the most emblematic photographer of the field, and that led him to become official photographer for the International Equestrian Federation.

Hello Amber,

So I'll put your question in order. The FEI assigns different photographers according to the events, the countries and their expectations. I am not alone and fortunately! Many of my colleagues are very good and bring their vision by their style. For my part, I was lucky to have had a contact that put me in relation with the FEI. My work have rained ...

Hello Silvia,

Good question, I don't know, I have no rider and horse in particular. I like horses that have character, presence, sensitivity.

Christophe

Goodnight Rebecca,

For the reason that the horse attracts me by his personality. But I'm not against trying other sports, of course when I speak "sport" to me it's all that is around the sport, atmosphere, preparation, emotions, fans, relationship ...

Hello Eva,

Advice, yes patience and perseverance. We live in a world where everything goes very fast! A short question that leads to long speeches! You have to surround yourself with good people who will advise you on photography and how to improve ... Social networks are not the best place to progress! All the pictures are beautiful lol ...

Hello Will,

Proud that is not part of my language. For those who know me I am rather humble. On the other hand the photos I love are often the last ones realized ... ;-)

Hi David,
INCONTESTABLY everything is around sport, the atmosphere, equestrian portraits, concentration, exchanges groom/horse, rider/horse, details…

Hi Mark,

YES, I love black & white, it focuses directly on the action. It focuses directly on the action. Also in indoor, with horrible lights, this sometimes saves some images. Yes, for the trademark but it’s a part of a combination of how to take pictures and treat them afterwards.

Hi Lauren,
I started photography fifteen years ago. At that time there wasn’t all period all the facility of today. I started in silver, I wasted many films !!! I touched a little to everything like when you start in a field and then gradually I specialized and found areas that I like, industry, marriage ... and then a revelation when I discovered the horse! It was a revelation, my sensitivity was in phase with his ... if you knew and I doubt not all that can be seen in the eyes of a horse ... he only misses the word ...

Hi David, 


I have a Canon 1Dx et 5D MkIII, my lens are canon (70-200 2.8) and sigma art (35mm 1.4, et 12-24). Actually, I realized with the time, I use frequently the same lens and keep only this trio…

Hello Ben,

I particularly like the work of Vincent Munier, Sebastião Salgado but after I like to stop on the work of other photographers I don’t necessarily have the names in mind. Strangely I try not to look too much at the equestrian photographers for fear of being influenced.
