horse and dog photographer, capturing and creating memories to last a lifetime

This is me

I’m Fiona and I’m slightly obsessed with crinkle cut, salted crisps and Highland ponies. I have the most crazy, disobedient dog of mixed heritage, getting the most unique combination of Cocker Spaniel and Irish Setter.

Most days you can find me photographing various animals, riding my two hairy ponies in a ‘Thelwell’ like manner or being taken for a walk by my overly enthusiastic dog.

I am mostly known for my equestrian photographic escapades with annual Riding Club Camps, exquisite photographic portraits of horses and other animals and my book ‘A Portrait of West Country Racing’.

I have many ongoing commissions with Riding Clubs, Racecourses, Equine Charities, Competition Centres, Stud Farms and Equestrian Brands as well as Event Organisers; Badminton Horse Trials, Gatcombe Festival Of Eventing, Royal Windsor Horse Show and Olympia - London International Horse Show. They all love my integrity, understanding and sincerity as well as my unique style, desire for perfection and my personality, well that is what they tell me!

I love serving the world of animal lovers by creating memories of their beloved pets to treasure for a lifetime. I have limitless patience; no animal has broken me yet!

I photograph for people who are looking for exquisite photos of their animals; capturing it's personality and vitality in natural surroundings; to put up on their walls on canvases or in frames to celebrate forever. 

I am lucky enough to have specialised as soon as I started out as a professional photographer. With my wealth of knowledge and experience (16+ years) I can capture the moment in a relaxed, happy and fun manner.

As a photographer I gained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Photography in 2001 which at that time was film cameras and dark room based! I’ve been honoured with numerous placings in international equestrian competitions, gained my ARPS from the Royal Photographic Society and have been commissioned by a publishing house to produce my book entitled ‘A Portrait of West Country Racing’ in 2008.

The things I am most passionate about are; my creativity, my husband, my ponies, my dog – in no particular order….
