Straight From The Horse’s Mouth..

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 [...]

Sarah & Bob

Earlier in the summer Sarah got in touch as she had been recommended my style of photography by one of my previous clients, Jackie.  They both stable their beloved horses at Moreton Equestrian Centre between Dorchester and Weymouth in Dorset and have been friends for sometime now.  I was delighted to be making a return to [...]

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 [...]

Polly & Archie

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. We hatched a plan together, he presented the gift and then this summer I got to meet Polly, her [...]

Alice & Sunny

One of the first really horsey people I met when I first moved to Somerset was Alice, she answered a plea for help with something and since then we've become good friends.  Having already photographed her Connemara gelding Paddy last year I was utterly delighted to be able photograph the old pony she's pretty much had [...]

Walking in the Footsteps of Legends

By | 2018-05-13T17:31:17+00:00 May 13th, 2018|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

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 [...]

Hot to Trot – The Hiho Silver Badminton Trot Up

By | 2018-05-11T15:10:07+00:00 May 11th, 2018|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , , |

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. [...]
