Equestrians of Color Project
The Equestrians of Color Photography Project (EOCP) was created to amplify the voices of equestrians of color who have stories they want to share with our community. First and foremost, each of us is an ally before a photographer and is here to listen, learn, and evolve from the stories that are shared with us. You can learn more about about the project's inception at equestriansofcolor.com.
We aim to provide a safe space for BIPOC equestrians to feel welcomed and comfortable in front of our camera. Through a group blog, we will strive to shed light on these challenging, uplifting, and inspirational stories. By raising awareness and supporting an inclusive and diverse equestrian community, together we will bring positive and developmental change to our industry on a global scale.
HOW IT WORKS
Approved photographers from around the world will submit stories to be published on the main EOC site in blog form. Stories will include photos and a narrative in their own words about their experience of being an Equestrian of Color. I am one of these allies and I pledge to listen, learn, and help in any way I can to elevate these challenging, uplifting, and inspirational stories. The process itself is simple – an interview and a photo shoot.
The first part involves a set of heartfelt interview questions about your experience as an equestrian of color that will help bring your story to light. Your responses will be used to write a blog post which will be posted on the photography project’s website.
The second part is your photo shoot with your horse designed to capture you as an equestrian. We’ll discuss the details of the shoot prior to the date, but this shoot is completely free of charge and you’ll be gifted 10 high resolution digitals of your choice for participating.
