Photography Tips #8: Golden Landscapes

Gold Beach stretches along the Normandy coast line, famously harbouring Port Winston in the Second World War and also of course being a British Landing Beach for D-Day. I love these beaches not just because of their incredible history, but also of their eerie stillness, flatness and their failure to not shine golden in the sun, all year round.

Snapshots #1: Holding onto the Holidays

Over the last few weeks nothing really has happened on Horse and Sport as I’ve been living it up in the beautiful French countryside.

Another aspect of equine photography that isn’t necessarily something you’d give a second thought to is showing in hand. Not as thrilling to watch as jumping or dressage but equally as skilled and beautiful. The idea … Continue reading Photography Tips #3: Handling In Hand Showing

Photography Tips #2: Capturing the Clear Round

Today I had the privilege of shadowing with Storm Equine Photography, as small business based in Ceredigion specialising in horse photography, and they are very very good at it. From working with them today here are the few things that I took from it all. I was working with their equipment, in this instance, a Nikon D4 paired with a sigma 70-200mm lens. This camera … Continue reading Photography Tips #2: Capturing the Clear Round
