But my horse is a total fidget!

By |2019-06-03T14:42:24+00:00June 3rd, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , , , |

I’m frequently sent messages from potential clients that start with something like.. ”Oh but Billy is such a fidget. He’s awful at standing still, I’m really not sure he’ll cope with it all!!” (Obviously not all horses called Billy are in this situation 😉 ) So here’s my take on it all... ♥︎ ♘ ♥︎   [...]

Spring Shoots to Savour

By |2019-07-09T20:22:31+00:00May 8th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , , |

Spring has sprung and if your horse is anything like mine right now, the spring grass is giving them spooky feet and silly moments!  Nice, thanks guys! That aside it's a fabulous time of year for a Spring shoot. I'd venture to say it's my 2nd favourite season actually.  It's always a firm favourite for many when [...]

Flat Lay Images for your Business

By |2019-07-09T20:26:19+00:00April 3rd, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

Flat lay images are a really simple and very versatile way to showcase products and services.   This style of photography is created by placing a number of items on a flat surface and shooting them from above.   Simple in definition and highly effective when done well. I've been using flat lay images in my [...]

Hiho & Co “All You Can Be” Instameet

By |2019-05-18T06:56:00+00:00February 15th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , , , , , |

The huge success and enormous post event interest created from the Hiho Styles, Skills and Silver Instameet in 2019 meant that there was no way that event was ever going to be a one off. It was obvious that the equestrian and rural business world had clearly been lacking events of this nature.  Instameets are NOT new, but [...]

How Batching your Image Content Saves You Time!

By |2019-05-14T15:11:36+00:00February 5th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

When I first got a feel for flat lay images and using them within my business I'd randomly grab stuff together to create an image.  Love the image, use the image and then the next day I'd probably do it all over again as I was enjoying the creative process and the nett result. Today, that [...]

Choosing Prints over Digitals

By |2019-07-17T08:26:44+00:00January 15th, 2019|Categories: Let's Talk Photography|Tags: , , |

We are fully immersed in the digital age and it's flipping brilliant isn't it!  Stuff, like photos, are at your fingertips 24/7 and we really don't have to think too much about where things are stored either.  The paperless office of the 1990's has taken over aspects of our personal life so that the savvy ones amongst [...]

By |2019-05-14T14:19:36+00:00September 11th, 2018|Categories: Let's Talk Photography, Life Rambles|Tags: , , |

If you read my recent Blog SSS - Why Me? you'll know I was incredibly nervous about being part of the team due to present at the Style, Skills & Silver Insta style workshop.  The event was hosted by Hiho Silver the equine and country jewellery company I'm so delighted to be a Brand Ambassador for.  Well, the beady eyed [...]

By |2019-05-14T14:24:05+00:00August 31st, 2018|Categories: Let's Talk Photography, Life Rambles|Tags: , , |

In the run up to the Style, Skills & Silver Insta-style workshop that I'm taking part in, hosted by Hiho Silver,  I sat down the other day and looked long and hard at myself to work out why I was being asked to present as part of the Skills team.  It's one thing when I'm at [...]

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 [...]
