Let’s Talk Photography…
Here in the ‘Photography Help’ area of My Journal you’ll discover insights into my world of photography. There are posts containing tips and things to consider if you are thinking about booking an equine photographer. Other posts provide some snippets of information that budding equine photographers may find useful.
This is also the place where I may leave reviews on specific events or horse shows I’ve covered in my role as a freelance photographer and you’ll find out more about me, the person behind the camera.
So thats what makes my world go round and what goes round in my head!
So grab yourself a comfy chair and delve in!

When you make the decision to book an equine photo shoot session with you and your equine best friend it's not a decision that you take lightly. Even once you've done some research and worked [...]
You are looking at the most amazing photograph of your horse and you know that it deserves, for once, to be on the wall. What to do next though? Where to even begin with this [...]
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 [...]
