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.

Honoured
19th March 2015
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…

ETN feature
09th March 2015
Whole page feature in Equestrian Trade News this month…

Cover girl
09th March 2015
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
27th February 2015
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!

In the news

The Dorking Advertiser has kindly run a news story on my latest achievement…

Award winning photographer
05th February 2015
So chuffed; not only do I have letters after my name, I'm now officially an award-winning photographer, having won the British Institute of Professional Photography's Best Licentiate Award 2014 today at Hartwell House.

It was a truly incredible day, meeting so many amazing like-minded photographers, especially Kevin Wilson FBIPP, who is a bit of a hero of mine as the godfather of wedding photographers. So humble and down to earth - he has FIVE fellowships from different photographic societies - and he took pictures of me! #starstruck #careerhigh!

Making it look like spring
22nd January 2015
With Freddie Parker needing products shots for its expanding homeware range, I was given the brief to create some images of the large cushions with spring flowers and recreate spring in January. Here are the results…

Fun with product shots
13th January 2015
Whether you would like a standard product shot or something a bit different, I love the challenges of this type of work and the opportunity of being creative.

Now featured in the American press
08th January 2015
Ashley Rossitter from Mirror Me PR has done it again. She's managed to get editorial for Freddie Parker in the American magazine Elite Equestrian, illustrated with the images taken during our fashion shoot in Lambourn last summer. To view the article, go to page 31 of the Jan 2015 issue Elite Equestrian



Excited
07th January 2015
Have received an invitation to the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) Awards Ceremony on the 5th Feb at Hartwell House. Fingers crossed as I've been nominated for the Peter Grugeon Best Licentiate Panel of the Year 2014.
Winter sun
07th January 2015
It was worth waiting for the winter sun to hit the stubble…

The beach
02nd January 2015
Just love the light on the beach, especially in the winter. There's nothing quite like it…





An Olympia to remember
19th December 2014
There's just no stopping Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro with another two world record scores at Olympia 2014. It's such a beautiful partnership. I never thought I would see the day when a Brit is the title holder of every major championship (Olympic, World, European and World Cup) and is showing the world what harmony is all about. Proud to be British - even if I am half German!

Here's a lucky audience member about to catch a rather special momento...
