Tansy the pup is 10 months old and loved the opportunity to sit on the furniture for photographs!

I'm currently enjoying black and white photography again

After goodness knows how many years I have decided to close my little portrait photography business.
Huge thanks to all my lovely clients who allowed me to share their family celebrations, weddings, parties, dog walks and all sorts of occasions and gatherings. They were all enjoyable and I loved meeting you all, especially the little scamps!

I'll still be taking pictures and hope to have some new photographic adventures so although the portrait website will go I'm going to keep the blog alive!

New puppy

All puppies are gorgeous but Labrador puppies are surely some of the most adorable. Their fur coats are charmingly too big for their squishy bodies and they smell wonderful.

Photographing Clydesdale horses

Last week I had a wonderful day doing some training on Dartmoor with Malcolm Snelgrove Photography and Adventure Clydesdales.
The Clydesdales are a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale, Scotland, and are a breed vulnerable to extinction like many other of our native horse breeds. They are beautiful big horses showing plenty of energy and expression in their movements, with clearly lifted hooves and a general impression of power.

 Adventure Clydesdales are based near Dartmeet and offer trail riding holidays and day rides across Dartmoor on their surefooted gentle giants. It looked terrific fun and something I'd love to do myself.

The horses seemed to love posing on the top of Bench Tor surveying the view like kings of the castle. They also enjoyed splashing through the rivers and racing each other up the slopes of Dartmoor.
What a fabulous day out for the riders and horses!

Winter Light

Winter light can be amazing!

When the sky is clear and the sun is low the light is warm toned, and then when it's slightly misty as well you get a lovely diffuse golden glow to the sky. On such a day recently I was able to photograph a friends Highland cattle. I loved their fabulous hairiness, especially the long fringes!

This week this happened!
It has been a dream to photograph a ballerina for a long time, and although we were very short on time all are happy with the results.

"Hi Merille

I just wanted to say how incredible the photos are which you took in the Music School, just amazing!!


I can't share more because the dancers are school children but hopefully this gives a flavour of their talent and poise
