I've been following Gem on Instagram (@Gemeventing) for some time and have loved keeping up with her plans and progress with her fab coloured blue eyed cob x TB, Connor.  We'd been chatting away on IG at times and I loved her enthusiasm for life, Con and all things purple!  I've always been a sucker for [...]

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

Today's few words of wisdom are based on how to get the best out of your horse on his equine photo shoot.  How to put him in the best frame of mind so you can work with each other to create those images you always dreamed of. So where to begin? Well a happy horse is a [...]

Framing your images…

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 and then why on earth should you bother I hear you say – because who’ll actually see it other than you [...]

Shooting the drama, just for the record

There are times as a photographer when you are obliged to shoot the whole story, and not just the bits you want to show or reflect. Now let me start by quantifying that statement a little. I'm not talking about the press style, chase your round the countryside to create a story or entice you to [...]

No Foot, No Horse!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Mat Meek, a farrier covering parts of East Somerset, whilst out on his rounds. I was looking for someone in the equestrian industry to follow for a few hours/day in order to really capture what their role in this ever growing leisure industry is and the impact their role [...]

Alice & Paddy

I met Alice earlier this year after I made a plea for someone handy to Yeovil and available at short notice to take part in a frosty shoot. Alice stepped forward and offered to be that person. So a plan was hatched, the weather was watched diligently for a couple of weeks and Alice was on [...]
