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.

Throughout 2011 and 2012, I was lucky enough to be able to travel to various countries across the globe in order to photograph horses. It was definitely worth it as the results were constantly fantastic. There’s something quite special and different about the behaviour of a horse in its natural environment, which I feel was reflected in my photography. It was thanks to these beautiful animals that I was able to present my fine art portfolio to the BIPP who awarded me my fellowship which was one of my proudest moments as a photographer!
