Life is full of stories and everyone has one they are waiting to tell…
Every single one of my personal equine shoots is full of individuality, full of interest and emotion. Stories that make them different from the next person and yet they each have one common theme – a love for their horse. You can find some of my fabulous ‘Client Stories’ here.
Within ‘Tog Blog’ you’ll discover more about me, the person behind the camera. You’ll find out what makes my world go round and what goes round my head too. Some of these journal blogs are, hopefully, an insight into the equine photography world and will provide answers to some of the many questions you may have regarding equine photography too. Some of my posts may be of a more light-hearted view.
So grab yourself a comfy chair and delve in!
