But my horse is a total fidget!

I’m frequently sent messages from potential clients that start with something like.. ”Oh but Billy is such a fidget. He’s awful at standing still, I’m really not sure he’ll cope with it all!!” (Obviously not all horses called Billy are in this situation 😉 ) So here’s my take on it all... ♥︎ ♘ ♥︎   [...]

Flat Lay Images for your Business

Flat lay images are a really simple and very versatile way to showcase products and services.   This style of photography is created by placing a number of items on a flat surface and shooting them from above.   Simple in definition and highly effective when done well. I've been using flat lay images in my [...]

How Batching your Image Content Saves You Time!

When I first got a feel for flat lay images and using them within my business I'd randomly grab stuff together to create an image.  Love the image, use the image and then the next day I'd probably do it all over again as I was enjoying the creative process and the nett result. Today, that [...]

Spring Shoots to Savour

Spring has sprung and if your horse is anything like mine right now, the spring grass is giving them spooky feet and silly moments!  Nice, thanks guys! That aside it's a fabulous time of year for a Spring shoot. I'd venture to say it's my 2nd favourite season actually.  It's always a firm favourite for many when [...]

Hiho & Co “All You Can Be” Instameet

The huge success and enormous post event interest created from the Hiho Styles, Skills and Silver Instameet in 2019 meant that there was no way that event was ever going to be a one off. It was obvious that the equestrian and rural business world had clearly been lacking events of this nature.  Instameets are NOT new, but [...]

Choosing Prints over Digitals

We are fully immersed in the digital age and it's flipping brilliant isn't it!  Stuff, like photos, are at your fingertips 24/7 and we really don't have to think too much about where things are stored either.  The paperless office of the 1990's has taken over aspects of our personal life so that the savvy ones amongst [...]

Style, Skills & Silver Workshop with Hiho Silver – The Result

If you read my recent Blog SSS - Why Me? you'll know I was incredibly nervous about being part of the team due to present at the Style, Skills & Silver Insta style workshop.  The event was hosted by Hiho Silver the equine and country jewellery company I'm so delighted to be a Brand Ambassador for.  Well, the beady eyed [...]

Straight From The Horse’s Mouth..

I recently had the pleasure of working with Victoria Hammond, an Equine Dental Technician (EDT) based in Somerset. To qualify and become a member of the British Association of Equine Dental Technicians and to be recognised by the British Equine Veterinary Association and also the British Veterinary Dental Association, requires some very serious and significant training [...]

Hot to Trot – The Hiho Silver Badminton Trot Up

When I was asked back in February if I'd be the Hiho Silver photographer for a number of projects for this year's Badminton Horse Trials I was a little bit floored, but it really didn't take me very long to snap off the arm of Emma Warren (Hiho's "Queen Bee") and we soon started scribbling and planning together.
