Catherine and I both stable our horses at the same yard, I’ve done many photo shoots at the yard so my mission was to try to use places I haven’t shot before, and saying I must have easily done over 15 shoots there so it was a challenge! Catherine wanted a shoot with Murphy while he still had his sparkle, and was in great condition. Murphy is quite a character and had me laughing all day at his antics. Catherine’s boyfriend Ian joined us to assist with the shoot in a cornfield, so I asked him to try to get Murphy’s attention by waving a pair of shorts behind me…as you do (Im letting all my trade secrets out now…you cant do a horse shoot without waving a pair of shorts!)! Whilst I was shooting away we heard a noise, and turned around to find Ian had walked backwards into a ditch! He was covered in mud from the shoulders down, but we still managed to get him in to a couple of shots by hiding his muddy body behind Murphy… poor Ian!
