Ehpico D’Atela. Champion Pure Blood Lusitano grey stallion.
Lusitano horses were originally bred for bullfighting, requiring boldness, courage, and strength. Lusitanos can become "hot" and difficult to handle if not properly exercised.
These images of a champion Lusitano stallion running free and untethered, use powerful studio lighting for ultra-fast flash durations to freeze detail to less than 1/6000th of a second.
The goal was to capture both the spirit of freedom and the power of the horse.
