All about me…

Providing horse lovers with authentic emotional images that capture the beautiful relationship they share together.

My name is Rachel Bragg and I specialise in Equestrian photography, offering both personal equine portrait shoots and bespoke equestrian & country based commercial images for your business. I’m based in heart of the beautiful West Country in Somerset, but I travel all over the UK.

Want to know more about the person behind the camera?

I’ve owned and ridden horses for most of my life and this has always helped me to really understand the relationships between horses and their owners and riders,  and of course to be able to confidently work within their environment. Around horses I find myself as a very relaxed and easy going person and I just love to sit and listen because engaging with clients to build an initial rapport is important for both parties and this helps provide the best photographic scenarios later on too.

My equine photography journey started in Event Photography. I still work a bit with some of the country’s leading Equestrian Event Photographers as a Freelancer, covering everything from grassroots Pony Club shows through to International Horse Trials and I love every second of it, come rain or shine.

Away from the camera, my world is light-hearted but professional & organised. Taking a closer look at myself, here are some things you might find amusing/interesting or things I’m often saying:

♥ If you need a list, I’ve got one already… possibly two or three…
♥ You’ll often see me with our Spaniel – you’ll discover him on Instagram Stories with #DiaryofWills
♥ I’m proudly married to a man in a uniform. We’ve lived in many great places but a home should always be rural.
♥ We own a VW Camper & get away whenever our joint diaries allow!
♥ I’m a sucker for a fabulous coloured sports horse & I’ve owned many for a number of years now.
♥ Toast crumbs in butter or butter blobs in jam pots are WRONG!
♥ I once had a lock of hair from the 1983 Derby winner Teenoso, until my brother flushed it down the loo!
♥ I’m a people watcher. Give me a brew, cake and a cafe window.
♥ You’re never too old for Jelly Tots. Ever…
♥ The path will twist & turn, but it’s your path, no-one else can tread it.
