Equine & Pet Photography


As a professional photographer with several years experience and clients throughout Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria. It was a natural progression through my love for horses, pets, outdoor life and working with people of all ages to work and share my creativity, expertise and friendly personality with those who are passionate about their horses and pets.

Photography is a form of art whereby you start from a blank canvas or with a subject and create something beautiful for all to view and admire.

Your Equine Portrait Experience

Horses are like people, they have their own character, personality, appearance, stature, likes and dislikes. They need love, friendship, trust and an owner or partner who will look after them as a member of their family. The relationship between you and your horse is a very special one, my aim as a professional equine photographer is to capture this through my photography away from the pressures of the show ring where all the attention is focused on you and your horse.

This could be in the privacy of your stable yard, out in the fields enjoying the freedom of riding and relaxing together, or natural portraits of your horse at liberty in the field.

You could organise a day with friends and their horses at a favourite location where you can be photographed galloping across fields, leading over streams or we could set up our mobile studio equipment to capture more intimate photographs of you and your horse beautifully lit with a natural background.

We want you to be comfortable, relaxed and to enjoy your photography session with us, so we can capture those special moments and the relationship you have with your horse for you to remember for years to come. We really don’t mind what you prefer to wear, you can dress in jeans to riding gear, in a ball gown to a wedding dress, the choice is yours.

* If you would like us to attend an Equine Event or show at which you are participating, we would be pleased to discuss this with you.

Prices, Booking and Products Understanding the needs of our clients is very important to us as each person is an individual and will have different requirements for their portrait session, whether it is for family, horse or pet portraits. If necessary we can make adjustments to the package to suit your needs.
