If we compare now to this time last year, I feel like there’s a difference in temperature of around 20 degrees! The clocks have gone forward this weekend and summer feels just around the corner and I can’t wait! The appearance of daffodils and blossom gives such a feel-good factor (and are a welcome addition to photos), and it won’t be long before bluebells are blooming. There’s no better time to book a photo shoot than when the bluebells are in full swing, and I’m now taking photo shoot bookings for April and May! Find out more information on those here;
This month saw 4 days of Horse-Events SJ and Arena Eventing at Wickstead, 5 days of BS and BD at Summerhouse and 2 days of BS at Hartpury. As well as that, we covered a Geoff Billington clinic, a number of Commercial shoots, including with Sports Horse Services, Tara Punter PR and Black Nova Designs, photographed the Hartpury College equine course on a field-trip to Redwings Horse Sanctuary and provided a number of images for sponsors and Horse & Hound. Phew – it has been a busy one!
The Arena Eventing final at Wickstead saw the culmination in their winter series and some exciting competition, in quest for fantastic prizes sponsored by NAF! This also means the eventing season is imminent and we’re so excited to be working with Horse-Events again this year. Horse-Events are running over 20 days of Eventing this year all over the South West, including at a number of stunning BE venues such as Broadway, Calmsden, Swalcliffe and Treborough Hill! The events are run to a brilliant standard, and well worth looking into for the Eventing enthusiasts amongst you!
I also collaborated with Tara Punter PR, Vic Brant (Wimpy Eventer), Holly Thomson (In the Country) and Danielle & Kyle (Black Nova Designs) for an evening full of laughs, motivation, ideas and some good food and wine! Holly’s inspirational blog summarizes the evening far better than I could and is well worth a read for all things positive; https://www.inthecountrymagazine.com/single-post/2019/03/20/5-Reasons-To-Surround-Yourself-With-Positive-People?fbclid=IwAR2hkwI9LwY2X1D1_3Qv-_W3LLijaVt3VYjYTHEwcYIpeFWMSv9AMup702o).
