I recently had the pleasure of working with Victoria Hammond, an Equine Dental Technician (EDT) based in Somerset. To qualify and become a member of the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians and to be recognised by the British Equine Veterinary Association and also the British Veterinary Dental Association, requires some very serious and significant training [...]

My 2018 Badminton Horse Trials experience continued on the Friday by covering The Eventing Club's course walk (sponsored by Noble Outfitters) with two times Badminton Champion and eventing legend, William Fox-Pitt.  With Alice Fox-Pitt a Brand Ambassador for Hiho Silver, the opportunity arose to be at the walk after Hiho attended the Fox-Pitt Open Day in [...]

When I was asked back in February if I'd be the Hiho Silver photographer for a number of projects for this year's Badminton Horse Trials I was a little bit floored, but it really didn't take me very long to snap off the arm of Emma Warren (Hiho's "Queen Bee") and we soon started scribbling and planning together.

I've long admired the style and simplicity that Noble Outfitters deliver in their equestrian clothing and accessories, so when I received one of their Evolution Insulated jackets to test I was fabulously excited! I'd been looking for a fully waterproof jacket that would technically cope with my photography life but also on the yard. Somehow it [...]

Moving Up and Moving On…

There comes a time in every pony mad child's life when things inevitably change. It really doesn't matter how brilliant the relationship is between child and pony, how much fun they've had, how successful they have been in the competition arena or even how much they love them, it just changes.   Those legs that once [...]

Mighty oaks from small acorns grow…

In the Spring of 2013 Sweet-Images Photography was born.  Initially my role as an equine photographer as you all know was within the events sector as a freelancer and then in more recent times as an equine portrait and commercial photographer.  Today in 2018 after an immensely changing past 12 months for me both personally and [...]

My Season Comes Full Circle

By | 2017-10-23T14:52:13+00:00 October 23rd, 2017|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

My freelance season is over for another year.  Much like last year it ended where the season began, at the same venue… only this year that venue wasn't Bicton Park in Devon, but Pontispool Equestrian Centre in Somerset.  Weird how this same basic situation has happened two years on the bounce!! So, what have I learnt [...]

3 Tips for businesses who need photos

As the demand for visually engaging content becomes more and more important in the progress of any business that has an online presence, then the use of poor quality imagery, and or instances of copyright theft, naturally rises too.  For me there's nothing worse than reading about a great product or service and wanting to discover [...]

7 Reasons For an Autumn Photo Shoot

For many, the idea of an outdoor photo shoot with your horse at any time other than summer seems wrong.  There's something about the warm weather, the ability to wear lovely floaty summery clothes and the sun burning bright. Well, thats all very true, but I'm here to say that actually there's something really rather special [...]
