Equestrian Photography – Mr Storm

So today was the long-awaited first horse photo shoot of the year. The weather has been so shocking that we’ve had to reschedule all the equestrian photo shoots until now. This is Mr Storm, a fabulous horse whom I have the pleasure of seeing in the fields by our studio most days. He was a great subject to shoot, and I particularly like this profile of him set against a ‘Stormy’ sky (get it?!). The photo shoot was carried out on the grounds of the farm, in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. We’re so lucky to be able to step out of the studio and have all these wonderful spaces around us. Despite his mature 22 years he was still a feisty chap. At one point I didn’t move quick enough, and I felt the full weight of his hoof slam down on my foot – note to self, wear something a little more substantial than trainers next time. Thanks a lot to owner Debbie for taking the time to bath and prepare Mr Storm, and also to her fabulous husband, who leapt around behind me, rustling paper, so that Mr Storm thought there were treats in store!! Please give us a call […]

New website – again!!

So yet again we’ve decided to revamp our website. Our last website looked lovely but did nothing to help us on Google, so we’ve changed it to, hopefully, a more sleek and easy to navigate website design that also conforms to all the latest Google algorithms. Please have a good look around the new design and let us know what you think, and do please forgive any errors while we personally redesign it page by page. Loads more galleries to add soon too, including dog and horse photography, which is perfect during the summer months in our Derbyshire photography studio.

Horse Photography – an emotional story

  As a photographer I have been part of so many lives and have told many a story through my images.  Stories mainly of happy times, new beginnings and milestones.  Some of these stories are emotional … but none more so that the story of Emily and Scooby the horse. An emotional call from Emily, the stable manager at Dunston Hole Farm where our studio is located resulted in dropping everything and capturing a memory never to be relived.  Her own horse, Scooby, has been suffering terrible pain in his legs and Emily had to take the painful decision to have him put to sleep. On Sunday I spent a glorious couple of hours sharing a very special time on what was to be their last evening together.  As Emily said her goodbyes and spoken gently to Scooby I respectfully captured their evening together. The video below shows just a few of those lovely moments…
