Arran and Oakley

horse photography

I met Arran and Mark a couple of years ago at the National Dressage Championships.  Arran wanted an Equine shoot for Mark’s birthday as a surprise.  I went up to their lovely home and had a fantastic day with them both, photographing Mark and his stunning black horse.I realised that Arran has a great skill in equine phycology.  It is truly amazing what he achieves through his knowledge, patience and skill.  We agreed that Mark and Arran would come down to the New Forest where we could photograph some of these magic moments.  We had a lovely sunset shoot at my home and the next day we boarded the ferry from Sandbanks to Studland and spent the morning on the beach.  Arran asked me if I would like to ride Oakley and I am still smiling from ear to ear.  He is so beautiful and and to witness a horse truly connected to their owner is a wonderful thing.  It is times like these I know why I love to photograph these amazing animals and how fortunate we are to have their love and trust.

Charlotte Dujardin – Olympic Gold Medalist!

Charllotte-1006bCharlotte asked me to take some more photographs of the amazing Valegro following their Olympic triumph.  I was so thrilled to be asked and couldn’t wait to see them both.  We had such a  fun day capturing the best of this wonderful horse and the partnership that both Charlotte and Valegro have together. I feel in a very honoured position to be able to capture these images for Charlotte at such a monumental time in her life. The images and the day that I photographed them together I will never forget!
