I’d be excited to show you some of my examples on our shoot together.
I love to travel, but please note that there is an additional expense of 40p a mile.
What happens at a photo shoot?
Prior to the photo session, I’ll call and chat about what you would like to achieve from the shoot. Each session usually takes an hour. But nothing is rushed. When I have the images I need, I go back to the studio to start creating your bespoke portrait.
Why is a portrait photo shoot more expensive?
Each portrait photograph can take up to 10 hours each to create and a lot more time demanding than a standard photo shoot. Due to this added time, my portraits work is more expensive.
How do I book?
Please complete the contact form below and I’ll be back in touch to discuss my availability. Once this has been confirmed, I’ll ask for a £295 non-refundable booking fee to be made, to secure the booking.
WHAT EXPERIENCE DO YOU HAVE WITH HORSES?
I’ve been around horses since the age of eight. First learning my horsemanship skills on an incredible yard called Bowler’s Riding School, based in Freshfield, Merseyside. It’s still an ABRS, BHS approved school, where not only riding and yard skills are taught to an exceptionally high standard, but the place is also a lovely buzz with private liveries, students, the Riding for the Disabled and RDA Carriage Driving groups.
At the age of 14 I was lucky enough to be given a Highland pony ‘Turnin Hill Piper O’Dundee’ and with regular lessons, competed regularly at local riding club and dressage events. At 19, I went on to study at Bishop Burton Agricultural College, East Riding and came away with a 2:1 in BSc (Hons) Equine Business and International Marketing.
At college, I started to photograph some of the main equine events with my film cameras (Pentax K100 and ME Super) and after my first photograph was published in Horse and Hound (Leslie Law and Shear H20), I was hooked. For the next four years I freelanced for the magazine, as well as other dressage publications. At the same time, I worked part time as a riding instructor and yard assistant at Bowler’s Riding School, as well as learning about a new invention called the ‘World Wide Web’ and teaching myself html code!
In 2000, I launched my first equestrian website and a career in web design followed. My passion for dressage has never left me, and in the past decade, I’ve continued to ride (though not as regularly as I’d like!) having lessons from Pat Armfield. In 2019 I purchased my first fell pony, called Lathomdale Louie.
