“My first pony was Turin Hill Piper O’Dundee. An incredible Highland pony who taught me so much through my teens. He was the perfect first pony. I unfortunately lost him at 17 years old to Cushings disease.
This is the only image I have left of him and me together. The quality is poor and the size is small. It was then I realised the hard way, the importance of having quality photographs to keep forever.” ❤️

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. On location I always ask for an extra pair of hands to catch the horses attention. We’ll have a great time! Everything is really relaxed and nothing is rushed. When I’ve the images I need, I go back to the studio to edit your beautiful images.
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 non-refundable booking fee to be made, to secure the booking.
What's Not included?
Please note that there are no digital files or prints included in your photo session fee. These are available on purchased a Frame/Aluminum Print or Folio Box. Why? Because I fundamentally believe the most important part of this process, is having a beautifully piece of art work on your wall, for you to enjoy forever. In the past, I found if I handed clients just the digital files, I had no control of the quality of the printers chosen, nor the framer. By purchasing one frame from me, you will see the difference. You’ll also notice how long it lasts, there will be no fading, no wrinkling of the print against the mount – just 100% exceptional quality. I’m so satisfied that you’ll love your order, that I offer a 100% guarantee.

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.
