Baby love
08th November 2017
People say you shouldn't work with animals and children. Perhaps I'm mad, but I love it (this little man was particularly adorable). Here is one of my favourite images from the commercial shoot for Holmwood Osteopathy.

I so enjoy combining different genres of photography as I did on this shoot: architectural and portraiture. It may be challenging, but it's oh so rewarding.

Foggy winter's morning

There's nothing quite like a foggy winter's morning...

Out To Win
05th November 2017
Horsey people are just the most dedicated, passionate and committed lot, as this image proves. Taken at the Cranleigh Show this summer, I decided to enter it in competition the other day. Entitled "Out To Win", it earned top marks.

Just can't resist...

A weekend's work
21st July 2017
So wonderful to see my weekend's graft published in Horse & Hound magazine this week, words and photos (all bar one as I wasn't there on the Friday).

Another adorable Harry
11th July 2017
How absolutely scrumptious is this little man, but then I'm slightly biased as he's called Harry, like my son.

Bullseye

Busy editing the images I was commissioned to take by the Cranleigh Show organisers. Here's a shot I couldn't resist creating...

Dudley
28th June 2017
I love that name and Dudley didn't disappoint — this bright ginger Irish Sport Horse did strike some stunning poses despite the slightly damp weather — and what lovely owner too.

A magnificent grey
08th June 2017
After a year of planning and postponements, it finally happened; equine nutritionist Fiona Watkins had her photoshoot with her magnificent 17.2hh Irish Sporthorse Brabus.

What a horse, he was truly amazing, a perfect gentleman and model. Here's the sneak peek. Can't wait to edit the rest!

Wow!
31st May 2017
I've been photographing properties for estate agents for more than a year now and have had the fortune of creating images of some special homes. Some rooms are more special than others though. And this bathroom floats my boat...

Love my job
22nd May 2017
I was asked to photograph a property for the first time last year. It was a flat in Monks Manor in Okewood Hill. Since then, I have developed this side of my work as I absolutely love going around people's houses, looking at different architecture and interior design.

Therefore I'm chuffed to bits to be working for the new, innovative, upmarket estate agent house., who pride themselves on being different.

Working for someone who appreciates creative property photography and positively encourages it within this sector is just a dream.

Here's a link to one of their properties



Spring flowers
28th April 2017
I'm having a bit of spell of being inspired by the spring flowers in my garden. Both the bluebells and snowdrops have been glorious this year.



Designs on interiors
24th April 2017
This is without a doubt my favourite image from my shoot for Bode Interiors. I love the simplicity, the colours and patterns.

Motherhood
20th April 2017
There is nothing as special as having your work recognised by your peers. Last night was the final competition of the Capel Camera Club season with the Print of the Year competition.

All four of my colour prints earned recognition. My cat portrait won the large colour print, a portrait of endurance rider Katie Bedwin and Layla took second in the small colour print, Red running along the beach earned a honorary mention as did a landscape I took at Bourton-on-the-Water.

However, it is my mono print winner that is my favourite image of the whole year. It won portrait of the year a few weeks ago and last night it was up against some incredible nature images.

The judge explained my image entitled Motherhood had the edge because it was so full of emotion. The picture has so much meaning to me as it takes me back to the early days with my eldest, who is now 17. I can so relate to it on so many different levels.

Changing gears
10th April 2017
Had a petrol-head moment today while waiting for the other half to have his driving experience. Composition is all about creating beautiful lines/curves and the Lotus Elite has plenty of those...

Tulips
31st March 2017
I was compelled to photograph one of my Mother's Day flowers; I so adore tulips.



Blue Eyes
17th March 2017
This gorgeous cat is called Lacey. She's a Tortie Blue Pointed Ragdoll. Amazing how all good-looking animals always seem to know they are beautiful.

A change
08th March 2017
Apart from portraits (people, horses or dogs), my other passion is interior design. Last week the owner of The Coach House Surrey called me to say he was ready for his next shoot as he's been expanding the showroom.

It was such fun creating the images for this fabulous shop in Gomshall, which now features garden ornaments including fire pits and other fabulous gifts.

You can view more of the images from the shoot in my Commercial gallery. I love the wine rack below...

Who would have thought...
24th February 2017
...I would be wishing for less sunshine the day after Storm Doris! Only from a photographic perspective of course.

This shoot was postponed from last year due to rider injury, so it was great for us to be able to go ahead with it before the start of the endurance season.

This is one of my favourites of Katie Bedwin and her stunning Arab mare Layla, who is training hard towards her first 100km race of the year.

Actor head shots
23rd February 2017
I do find creating actor head shots one of the most enjoyable genres of photography. Changing clothes, hair, backgrounds and expressions make for completely different looks.

Please do get in touch if you would like a similar set of images as in Louise Newman's video.
