2018 A Year in Photo Shoot Outtakes

I simply LOVE good photo shoot outtakes! Whilst they may not be the images which end up in pride of place in my client’s homes, sometimes they are the ones which capture a bond or the character of an animal just perfectly! I always...

2018 in Pictures (and a few words!)

I know I probably say it every year but what a year 2018 has been! From working with Equestrian brands such as Equitheme and Horze to photographing Olympic veterans this year has had it all. I, as always feel honoured to have been invited into...

Issie’s B*Spoke Competition Shoot

I caught up with my sponsored rider Isabella Shaw and her fabulous Pony ‘Only Sometimes’ at Llanymynech Horse Trials on the 14th of May. On this lovely sunny May morning, I met Issie and her mum by the horse boxes as soon as we all...

Jess’s Remember Me Photo Shoot

A ‘Remember Me’ Photo Shoot is not always the easiest of shoots to set out on but they are definitely amongst the most rewarding. A ‘Remember Me’ Photo Shoot is typically booked when a Horse or Pony has a terminal illness...

Becky & Sulwyn // A Mini Shoot Series

I feel like something of a regular these days at Becky’s super yard in Warmingham, Cheshire. Following on from a fantastic shoot with Becky and her 3 exmoors and Magic last year she asked if I could come and do a Horse & Rider Mini Shoot...

Hero & the Pen-Llyn Lusitanos

I first met Hero Douglas back in 2015 at Bonnie Fishburn’s Wedding. Hero was playing the harp and singing and I was (of course) taking all the photos! I was blown away by Hero’s voice and her harp playing was just divine. I later...

Katie & Roos’s Portrait Shoot

I’m having to travel all the way back to May for this blog post, a whole 4 months ago! What a summer it’s been, not the most ideal weather wise at times I’ll admit but a fantastic one nonetheless with so many wonderful clients,...

World Photography Day

As today, the 19th of August is World Photography Day I thought I would take the time to have a browse through my work from the past few years and choose some of my favourites! It’s been a difficult task I have to admit not to bombard you...

Studio Horses

I embarked on a new and exciting project earlier this year with the investment in a set of studio lights (as if photographing horses wasn’t interesting enough in the first place….!) and I absolutely love the results! With a great...

Jess, Dotty & Kenya

Way back in April of this year (although it was the last day of April so I’m almost into May’s shoots!) I spent a wonderful evening on a photo shoot with the gorgeous Jess and her two fabulous eventers Dotty and Kenya. Jess was a...

Caroline & Troy’s Portrait Shoot

Way back when (in March!) I had the pleasure of photographing Caroline and her very handsome steed Troy in the stunning Cotswolds countryside. It was a bit of a juggling act arranging the portrait shoot as we were completely at the mercy of...

Pugs in the Park

It’s not often that I have the luxury of going just 5 minutes down to the road to a Portrait Shoot but last month I had just that luxury when photographing the adorable Arne the Pug in Sefton Park in Liverpool. I had such a fun morning...

A Portrait Shoot with Amy & Phoebe

I had the pleasure of paying a visit to Amy and her gorgeous Welsh pony Phoebe last month on the very edge of the Shropshire Hills for an Equine Portrait Shoot. Amy was a lucky prize draw winner from the ‘Portrait Shoot of the Year’...

Achieving my Licentiate Qualification

The Easter bank holiday got off to a particularly positive start for me as I thought I’d pop into my local sorting office before hitting the road down South for a weekend of both work and family celebrations. I seem to have a constant...

The Cheshire Bloodhounds Closing Meet 2016

It is always a fantastic day going out with the Cheshire Bloodhounds and the closing meet of the season at the Cheshire Showgrounds on Sunday was no exception! If nothing else I came away from the day with a whole new appreciation for being...

Emily Bradshaw & Alfie’s Portrait Shoot

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Emily Bradshaw and her very handsome (not to mention talented) steed Alfie last month. It was just days before they both jetted off to Holland where they will be for the time being training and...

Huw’s horse (&dog) Portrait Shoot

With the vast majority of my human Portrait subjects being female (I haven’t been keeping track of the animal gender stats!) it makes for an interesting change to be booked to photograph a man and his animals! Sharon got in touch with me...

Claire & Ian’s Engagement/Family Session

Engagement shoots are such a wonderful time to get to know a couple before it comes to photographing their big day where the last thing they need to be worrying about is how they’re going to feel in front of the camera. So when Claire and...

The Cheshire County Show with the Bloodhounds!

2015 has seen me bravely entering the world of ‘the trade stands!’ which to be completely honest has been a slightly daunting prospect! With the Warrington Horse Show in May and the Cheshire County show last week it has involved a...

The Cheshire Bloodhounds Closing Meet

All season I’ve been looking at the diary and trying to tie in a Sunday out with the Cheshire Bloodhounds but without much luck and before I knew it, it was the closing meet for the season! Luckily my diary conceded this one to me and so I...

Portraits, Portraits, Portraits!

I know I’m a little bit behind the times but seriously where did January go??? It is increasingly and controversially one of my favourite months of the year as it’s so long and doesn’t usually run away with you but this year...
