I’m a specialist Equine Photographer with a genuine love of working with horses. Based in deepest Surrey, just a stones throw from the West Sussex border, I do take commissions from all over the UK.
Equine photography is my passion; I create beautiful timeless portraits of your horse in an original way using many years of photographic skill learnt on unforgiving film emulsions, long before the invention of digital photography and Photoshop. My horse portrait images have been compared to old paintings with their majesty and formal poses whilst still retaining the personality of the Equus Genus.
My early fascination with light and its interaction with subjects has led me down a path of using controlled daylight and crafted studio lighting techniques to achieve images that are powerful yet calming and that convey the grace and humility provided to us by our horses. My equine studio images can be seen here, these are all shot on location with my fully portable studio.
“Beauty and drama with powerful serenity”
Horse photography is a specialist art form, requiring inexhaustible patience and dedication to understanding the equine form. This is reflected by there being only a handful of equine photographers in the UK, specialising solely in this difficult field.
As a horse owner and having owned horses myself for many years, I’m consequently very comfortable in their presence and I feel that this natural harmony is conveyed in my style of photography.
