When choosing my career, I did not realise how much difference there would be between the types of photography we can do and the types of resources we need to complete a session.

“Mentor Me” Equine Photography Programme – Kate Alford

Last September Kate Alford signed up for the basic photography one day course. Her initial intention was to learn how to use her camera. She decided after the course to continue working with me and signed up for the 3 day equine course. Kate felt both courses covered everything she needed and the content was incredible and a great source of information. She wanted to ensure she did not get distracted by the daily slog as a mother of three children. Kate wanted to push herself forward towards her dream job, so she joined my "mentor me" programme

Exhibiting my work

One key aspect I teach the delegates on a training course is the importance of exhibiting your work. Below are a collection of images taken from various shows around the country. Exhibitions are really fun and are so important for getting more of your work in the public eye. They provide a great opportunity to meet some really interesting people too!

One-to-one Equine Photography Training course with model Emily

I used Emily to model again for me for a one-to-one Equine Photography Training day, this time with her adorable pony Smugde. We did the shoot across the road from the EHP studio at Castle Hill in the New Forest. Emily is great to photograph and she has a really special bond with her pony which is reflected in the images below.
