Amanda & Sara’s Photoshoot, Somerford Park

I have had the honour of working with Amanda on a number of occasions before, having photographed her horse Whitney and also photographing Amanda and Myles’ wedding day.  I’ve also photographed Amanda’s sister, Karen and her horses.  Karen has also booked another photo shoot with her new horse in April.  For Amanda’s shoot we went to Somerford Park where I met Sara, a gorgeous Fresian Cross.  It was a cold November day, but we were blessed with the Autumnal colours that still lingered.  Unfortunately, it did rain a bit but we made the most of it and created some lovely moody, drizzly images.  Amanda had also brought along her dog, Mila so we got some shots of these 2 together also.  Amanda chose to have casual outfits on this occasion.

Here are a few of the images….

Riding School Photoshoot Day

I was contacted by one of our existing clients, Sarah from a local riding school to ask if I would do a photo session for them, of course I was happy to help.   We set up for the day and spent 15 minutes per person taking shots of the children from the riding school.  We did about 24 children with most of them wearing the Equestrian Club’s clothes.  There was a wide variety of horses from small ponies through to a 30-year-old horse.  As well as the children we also had some babies, adults and even families.

There was a huge selection of images so here are just a few…

Sharon and her dog’s Winter photoshoot, Cheshire


I have the pleasure of working with Sharon on a previous occasion which was 6 years ago when I photographed her horse.  This time it was to photograph her dogs, all 5 of them! Ellee-Mae and Edward who are Jack Russell’s, Dotty a mixed breed, Murphy a German Shepherd and Izzee a terrier and chihuahua cross.  Little Dotty was found down a drain with her 5 siblings in Spain and little Izzee was born with no eyes.  We did the shoot at Sharon’s home on a cold December day.  Sharon didn’t want to be in the photo’s, but we had lots of fun capturing the dogs and all their individual characters.

Here are a few of the images from our day…

Ben & Barlow’s photoshoot

Ben rescued Barlow and is currently in the middle of his training program which is going well although Barlow gets very excited around other dogs.  Prior to being rescued by Ben, Barlow was being used as a bait dog.  It was lovely to see what a strong bond these two have.  We went to Reddish Vale Park for our shoot and unsurprisingly we ended up in the water – good job I never leave home without my wellies!  We had lots of fun on this shoot.

Here are a few of the images from our day…

Jo Shaw’s Livery Photo Shoot

I currently sponsor Jo and was very happy to visit her at her yard to photograph some of her livery horses.  Amazingly the day ran very smoothly, and I managed to create black background shots of all the horses.  Jo has also started to sell horse boxes, so I took the opportunity to get some images of these too.  Visit Jo’s website for Red House Stables at www.joanneshawequestrian.com

Take a look at some of the images from the day here…

Debbie has hit the floor running…

Debbie went live in February after completing her training and to say she hit the floor running is an understatement! Between all the photo shoots, editing and viewings that she’s been doing Debbie is also busily preparing to appear at Crufts 2017 with all our team! I managed to catch up with Debbie for a coffee recently and this is what she had to say;

“I am delighted to be part of the HPUK team. I am really enjoying meeting so many lovely people and their horses and dogs. The shoots are great fun and it’s a joy to see people’s faces light up when they see their photographs. I am really excited about the future and the opportunities that being part of the HPUK family will bring.”

Debbie really has settled in and become one of us and I am so proud of her – I just wanted to share some of her work with you here…

Introducing our new Franchisee, Debbie Cowley

We are all so happy to welcome Debbie to our photography family. Debbie, who lives in Sale, Manchester will be covering the Lancashire and Manchester area and is a great addition to the team.

“Originally from London I moved to Manchester in the late 90’s and have never looked back. My passion for photography began when I had the opportunity to photograph wildlife on the Galapagos Islands getting up close and personal with animals such as iguanas, frigate birds and albatross.

Our family expanded with the arrival of our beautiful Irish Sports Horse Tequila who we enjoy competing with in dressage and show jumping. Having had Shetlands, horses and dogs (including a rather large St Bernard!) in my younger years I am delighted that horses and dogs have re-entered my life and that I now have the opportunity to capture beautiful images of them and their owners, creating wonderful memories and beautiful works of art”.

We cannot wait to share Debbie’s journey with you….

HPUK’s training day in Surrey

Steve, www.dogphotographerukcheshirewest.co.uk and I headed down to Emma’s, www.horsephotographeruksurrey.co.uk territory in Surrey for a full day of training. We began the day with the dogs, Skye a collie and Sammy a puggle. First it was the turn of Rachel and Skye – we did this in their back garden in Kingston-upon-Thames which was more than ample in size with lots of choice of areas. Then we went out and about for a more urban look for Mille and Sammy the puggle’s turn. Millie wore some funky leggings and Dr Marten boots and we got some great shots using mosaic wall art and a graffiti mural.

After breaking for a lovely lunch we then headed out to Chobham Common with a beautiful dressage horse called Rudy and its rider Melinda. Emma styled this shoot for us and she chose a Victorian theme with the model wearing a beautiful purple gown. It was such a sunny day I was a bit worried that it would be too bright however we managed to create some lovely dappled shots.

My budding photographer daughter, Ellie joined us on this day with her camera – check out her website for some of her images, www.elliewestwood-ruttledge.co.uk

Here are a few images from our day…

Holly & Flickers Photo Shoot Gift

Holly received her shoot as a birthday present from her mum.  Holly didn’t want any ridden shots which was a good job as we were limited to a field which had the 2 other horses who lived there in at the same time!  The stable was also in the same field so we got some shots around here and some black background images too.  We also included Holly’s dog Alice in some of the shots for her.  The weather was kind to us as it was a nice day but not too bright and sunny.  This shoot was very much about the horses rather than Holly so she opted for a casual look on the day.  Holly and her mum chose an acrylic for the wall and a portfolio box.

Take a look at some of our images here…
