By | 2017-10-06T09:41:34+00:00 June 21st, 2017|Categories: Client Stories|Tags: , , , |

On a beautiful summer's evening I headed out to meet a very special young man for an equine photo shoot. A very very young man at just 4 days old whose arrival has been eagerly anticipated by a large number of people for a long time. Everyone loves a foal so for me it's been a [...]

Where Gingernuts, Jaffa Cakes & Marmalade on Toast are just some of the favourite treats for some show horses! I've just completed my first ever trip to the Royal Bath & West show and it's was a great event. I'd go so far as to say that despite the heat encountered over the 3 days I [...]

Racing Away with a Personal Touch

By | 2017-07-09T10:30:51+00:00 May 27th, 2017|Categories: Photography Help...|Tags: , , , , , , |

I was recently asked to go to Newmarket in order provide some lifestyle blog images for a browband company attending the yard of one of their oldest and best customers. I jumped at the chance as I've been a racing fan all my life. Much of my equine love, and certainly racing knowledge, came from [...]

In this second part to my 'Show Life' (Part 1 can be found here) I look at how my day developed... To recap, it was Day 1 at the Devon County Show and I was covering showing all day in one of the purpose built equine designated rings. The ground was good with a lovely covering [...]

Show Life as an Equine Photographer – Part 1

One of the most asked questions from budding equine event photographers to me is: "Just what is a typical day at a big show like?" Well, that's actually a really difficult question to answer most of the time as there are many factors that can influence the answer you'll get from me. I decided that with [...]

When photographs really do mean the world…

By | 2017-07-09T10:42:30+00:00 May 13th, 2017|Categories: Photography Help...|Tags: , , , , , , |

Never say you'll do it tomorrow… for sometimes tomorrow never comes…   A recent shoot very poignantly reminded me of just why I chose to make equine portraits such an important part of my life today. So I've decided it really is time that you got to know a bit more about me, the person behind [...]

Anna & Benji

She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails...   I first spoke with Anna in the New Year, her photo shoot had been a well executed surprise Christmas present to her from her boyfriend Stephen. We made plans for the summer, around her birthday in June. [...]

An Equine Photo Shoot for Laura & Eric

In autumn of 2016 Laura was the successful highest bidder during a fund raising auction to have an equine photo shoot with me. Ever since then we've pretty much had this date in the diary and so it was with great pleasure that I headed out of Somerset to the South Hams area of South Devon [...]

Shooting the drama, just for the record

There are times as a photographer when you are obliged to shoot the whole story, and not just the bits you want to show or reflect. Now let me start by quantifying that statement a little. I'm not talking about the press style, chase your round the countryside to create a story or entice you to [...]

No Foot, No Horse!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Mat Meek, a farrier covering parts of East Somerset, whilst out on his rounds. I was looking for someone in the equestrian industry to follow for a few hours/day in order to really capture what their role in this ever growing leisure industry is and the impact their role [...]
