Happy New Year
To everybody who has booked me for their event, their family portraits, wedding or simply bought photos at events or through this website.
Yesterday I went along to photograph at Kings Equestrian Centre for their postponed Christmas Show. As the snow has only just melted round here, the turnout was not huge but those there had fun and some good jumping, despite the thick fog which was evident indoors too. The photos for this event are now available in the Shop.
Tom with his father’s shotgun and an over large shooting jacket waits with Cobble, his partner in crime, for a lift home with his bounty of a brace of pheasant. It is the shooting season now and I decided to capture Tom showing more of a lifestyle image than a standard studio portrait. Thank you Tom for your patience out in the cold and also to Cobble for his reluctant co-oporation.
WARNING: The shotgun in this picture is shown in the closed position for artistic purposes only and should never be carried about like this. There were no cartridges either in the gun or in the vicinity of the photoshoot.
On Sunday I went down to Pauntley in Gloucestershire for the second time this year. The rain held off and we even had some nice light right at the end of the day. The turn out was pretty good and I am sure all had a good time on this undulating course, at least for the later classes. The variety of tiny fences for the first timers is very good here too, so there is something for most abilities.
The pictures are now available as always in the Shop area of the website. Thanks to the Clapham family who run this course, always with a warm welcome.
I was also asked to cover the Wheatland Hunter Trials at Pound Green on the same day, but as I was already booked, Abi Humphries kindly went along for me.
Images form both events are now online in the Shop.
