Camargue herd scarf
Well it’s very flattering to be the subject of someone else ‘s blog!Desarts

Thank you Julien!
I realise though that because I do several different types of photography there’s a risk of confusion.
I love to photograph people and am not as diligent about updating my website as I should be
I also love photographing horses and am a bit more current on

However my current passion is the Limited Edition Fine Art Prints and beautiful luxury silk scarves that I make from my equine images. These can best be seen on

The scarves are a subset of the Limited Edition prints and are available to buy online at

Award winning

Friday, April 15th, 2016

It is with considerable difficulty that I write about myself. As a child I was always told, “Don’t boast” and “It’s rude to talk about yourself”
Well in business that certainly doesn’t work, so overcoming my inhibitions I am announcing that I have been awarded an honour by Aspire Magazine.
They have chosen me as their “Aspire Inspirational photographer of the year 2016”
Aspire Magazine article
Sounds brilliant!
It seems they like my pictures, both babies and horses – a funny mix I know.
Examples of the babies can be seen in issue and at

None of these pictures could have been created without the fantastic teamwork of parents and baby all cooperating with one aim, to get memorable images of this special moment.
Thank you to all of the parent participants in my portfolio exercise.
You know who you are!

Also my new website features Fine Art prints of the horses

Mill Lawn again

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Once more on Mill Lawn in the New Forest near Burley – this time with Emily a young but very accomplished horsewoman.
Her horse Otto has a travelling buddy Smudge who kept Otto interested while the shoot was going on.

Emily led them both along beside the Brook

Then the focus was on Otto while Smudge watched from a distance and kept an intermittent commentary on proceedings

More New Forest outings

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

A recent visit to the New Forest included a very enjoyable photo shoot with Louisa on Mill Lawn
Louisa arrived on horse back and what an interesting horse she has!
Megan, the horse – an unusual name I think, is much older than she looks and has amazing eyes.
They really look huge don’t they. I really like Megan’s expression in the first photo, it makes me wonder what she is thinking.
