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 [...]

Some of the best equine photo sessions I'm privileged to shoot come through the kindness of others and through the giving of gift packages or vouchers. The response from those receiving the gift is often one of sheer delight at the prospect too.  I know from my own horse owning days that rarely would I buy myself [...]

A few months ago I had a very lovely conversation with Alan, a man clearly wanting to give the girl in his life, Polly, a present he knew she’d love… pictures of her beloved Thoroughbred heartthrob, Archie.
