The current Corona crisis is affecting everyone, so much is clear. We therefore spoke with one of the most well-known photographers in equestrian world, Leaonje de Koster of Digihots, about how this virus is affecting his life.
"Nobody knows how this will evaluate but I'm afraid that a lot of companies won't make it", De Koster says. "I think a lot of equestrian businesses are facing difficulties right now. Several countries are closing their borders and it's not possible to travel from one country to another like before. This make it very difficult to do my job. I'm not worrying just yet, but I hope this will be over soon. I'm not going to deny that I will face some difficulties as well if this takes too long".
"If I have a back-up plan? No. I'm convinced that you should do what you're good at. I'm not changing that opinion given the current crisis. I remain with my specialties but I know other photographers are desperately looking for work. No events can take place and because of that, I'll have to work on different projects as well. I can also count on my partner Monique, she has other specialities so she can do other things".
"The only thing I can do right now is wait and see what happens. I can make articles for magazines but the most important thing is that everyone stays home until events can be organized again. If I can give any tips? Stay Coronafree and we will see each other soon!".
