Horses for Sale – How I can help!

Hello, thanks for stopping by.  I just wanted to share a new venture I’m now offering to those that regularly sell elite sport horses within the Midlands region.  I know from personal experience how frustrating it can be getting the right kind of photos to show off one special horse for sale, as they have […]

Wedding Workshop 1 – Peak District

Last summer I attended my second ever wedding workshop over near Castleton, Derbyshire.  The host was the lovely Jon Dennis of S6 Photography.  He shared how he built his business up and how he attracts the wedding couples that suit his photographic style.  It was a great day and one I really enjoyed.  Let’s be […]

Bronze Award – Dog Portraits

Well once again I submitted three photographs for judging with the Guild of Photographers and am pleased to say I got one bronze which I’m really happy about.  Why I love this picture purely because of the timing of it with both mum and daughter  (Nemo & Piglet) both holding the stick and especially the […]

Pre-wedding photoshoot – Fi and Joe

I love doing pre-wedding photoshoots with my couples.  Why?  It just simply relaxes them in plenty of time on their wedding day plus we get to know each other, chat, laugh and have a lovely time.  My style is natural so no obscure posing as that’s not me and not how I work but it’s […]
