Recording light is a relatively newer medium that has gained popularity among the photographer community and photograph clients. Featured in Shutter Up Magazine and a participant in the renowned Equestrians of Color Project, Maureen Friedly is a multi-dimensional photographer who aspires to capture the moment between horse and human through the art of photography. She aims to preserve the moment rather than planning a formal composition as it will not seize the relationship in the required intensity, hence her photographs are unique, intimate, bright, spirited and customized.
The custom vintage style logo we designed for Fox Trot Photography is on the border of old west and modern vintage with the connection between the horse and the fox resembling the interrelation between Maureen’s shots of fairytales and cowboy cultures.

“I was absolutely blown away with what I was shown! I felt like my logo encompassed everything about me, my art, and my clients. It was gritty, a touch feminine, and very Old West; exactly what I wanted to capture...
I met Jackie at The Equine Photography Retreat in 2020. I had seen several of her logos before and always loved them, but wasn’t sure if she would be willing to take on my brand. Most of what I had seen from EQ Graphics was geared toward the English equestrian world, and I mostly cater to the Western demographic. I approached her, shared my work, and told her a bit about my style. She was excited to give it a go. I had no idea about exactly what I wanted as a logo for my photography business, but I knew I wanted it to reflect my brand, my work, and me as an individual. A quick phone conference and a couple months later and EQ Graphics emailed me the first draft. Working with EQ Graphics was not only simple, but fun! They helped me see a side of my business I hadn’t noticed before which then allowed me to better brand myself to potential clients. I finally have an eye catching logo that tells people exactly what I’m about and what to expect from their time with me. I can’t thank EQ Graphics enough for their amazing work.“
