Live wire
11th May 2015
The five-year-old Denzil was a bit of a live wire during his photo shoot, but we managed to capture a few special shots nevertheless. Thank you Chloe for all your patience!

Love London

Fun day at the Sony World Photography Awards. Love a bit of street photography, back on my old home turf...

Proud to announce that I've been asked to join the Capel Camera Club selection committee. It's quite uncanny the similarities between the dressage and photography competition world. Thoroughly looking forward to the challenge!

A yummy mummy

Here is a sneak peek from today's boudoir shoot with a stunning mum of two.



The best of the best
21st April 2015
Quality product photography, like any photography, is a specialist genre. When you have the opportunity to spend a day learning from one of the best in the world - he does product photography for the Rolls-Royce of camera manufacturers Hasselblad - you know you are in for a treat.

Oh boy, what an experience it was watching Jonathan Beer FBIPP perform his magic!

As he doesn't offer training and rarely accepts engagements to speak about his work, it was a huge privilege I won't forget. Learnt so much...

A precious moment captured
15th April 2015
Two beautiful young sisters, an adorable pony and stunning weather is a recipe for a great equine lifestyle shoot. Add to that meeting a legendary horsewoman, aka Rosemary Attfield, then you have an extremely happy photographer!

Here is the moment little sis has her first ever sit on the six-year-old Rosie, helped by a proud big sis.

Adam Kemp impresses
12th April 2015
British Dressage magazine issue 3 2015 is out featuring the lovely Helen Stone, winner of last year's Petplan Equine Area Festival High Achiever award, whom I had the pleasure of photographing at Adam Kemp's yard, AM Dressage.

Adam donated lessons to the winner and it was amazing to watch the transformation he achieved in such a short time while we were combining a training session and photo shoot.

Proud mum
10th April 2015
My 11-year-old son decided he wanted to assist at a pre-wed shoot yesterday, so I gave him my back-up camera and heavy 70-200mm lens, not expecting many images to be sharp as that's a weight many adults struggle to work with.

Little did I know he was going to produce these outstanding images…

Margaret
09th April 2015
You meet some incredible people in my line of work, none more so than Margaret Fowler of Oxford Hill Rugs. In her 70s, she travels the country with her two cats in a transit van towing a caravan, selling her home-made dog coats and horse rugs.

I will be eternally grateful for the kindness she showed me at the South of England Spring Show when she made me a lovely hot cup of soup when I was cold to the bones on the first day…

Love these showing outfits!
08th April 2015
Lead rein showing classes really are something else. I just love the matching outfits. This is the champion, three-year-old Oscar Elcock riding Thistledown Velvet Button, at the South of England Spring Show held at the South of England Showground, Ardingly.

South of England Spring Show
05th April 2015
Do come and visit me at the South of England Spring Show, Ardingly, on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Apart from a special show offer, I will be running a competition to win a photo shoot including a 10x8" framed print.
Bob The Leopard
29th March 2015
I don't usually photograph leopards, but this one is somewhat special if not unique. I cannot imagine there are many "rocking" leopards about! Bob is the hand-crafted creation of the talented Debbie Hinton of Jolly Rockers. He is one of a limited edition and a percentage of sales will be going to charity to help protect the Bob's living relatives.

I'm so honoured to be featured in the British Institute of Professional Photography The Photographer magazine among such amazing photographers.

Studio session
13th March 2015
Working with studio lighting is very different to my usual lifestyle photography, where you have to find the best available light. It was such fun and my model Dannie was a dream to work with.

Here are the results…

Cover girl

It's always special to see one's images in print, especially when it's a cover. This gorgeous shy foal was bred by Char Lassetter of Lassetter Dressage at Molcomb Stud on the Goodwood Estate.

English Wedding Blog

Excited to have some of my images featured on the English Wedding Blog. Fabulous experience working with award-winning wedding photographer Matthew Bishop once again.
Portrait evening
27th February 2015
Had a great fun evening experimenting with my new 85mm f1.4 lens at the Capel Camera Club portrait evening. One of the model's was my son's guitar teacher, who spent the night strumming. Made for a special evening!
