A Lovely Sunrise on the Gallops in Newmarket

Late 2018 I headed out to Newmarket to capture images for a client. Leaving home early, I got to the gallops bang on time, to capture this soft beautiful image of the horses in the distance, coming down the famous hill towards the Suffolk town.

It’s all about planning, getting the time right and a touch of luck!

Horses, Rider & the Norfolk Countryside

A wet & windy September day saw me head to the Norfolk countryside for a commission to shoot images for the market leading horse feed company of a nutritionist & her two horses..

Unfortunately weather wasn’t on our side, however, two very patient horses and owner, meant we could dodge the heavy rain and shoot outside in the gorgeous countryside.
Strobes in hand, plastic bag in the pocket and walking boots on, images were achieved before a truly biblical downpour..

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Prince William returns to Norfolk for charity polo match

Friday in the heart of Norfolk I had the pleasure of being the only photographer at the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate, which saw HRH The Duke of Cambridge join team Tarmac at GRS.

“Prince William, in his role as patron of charities SkillForce and the English Schools Swimming Association, took part in the Norfolk Polo Royal Charity match at Langley Abbey Estate.

The match was closely fought throughout and ended in a draw with a score of 4-4-. The Duke of Cambridge played alongside England International player Peter Webb, Scottish player and adventurer Robert Melville, and Clive Reid from Guards Polo Club.

Owner of Langley Abbey and Norfolk Polo Director, Rebecca Townsend, said: “It’s a real privilege and delight to watch the Duke play. It’s also a very special opportunity to help support the work that these amazing charities carry out.”

Leading construction solutions business, Tarmac sponsored the Royal Team and construction aggregates firm GRS sponsored the opposition.”

Cameras, lights, horses and horse-feed!

Occasionally I get shoots booked in that require a slightly different skillset.
This particular summer shoot was for a well-known and extremely well-respected horse feed & nutrition company. Coming from a horse background, it certainly helped with dealing and photographing the various owners and their beautiful horses.
Working with animals is always testing (boy am I glad I don’t work with them full time!) but equally it’s rather satisfying when the images come together.
One of my favourites is the head Nutritionist in one of the feed rooms – the light was just right, adding a small strobe and reflector helped illuminate the shadows and provided a pleasing portrait.
