I believe that to be good at something you have to be interested in it. From what I can remember I've always had a love for taking pictures, and funnily enough - Horses! I never properly got into using a DSLR camera until roughly 6 years ago a friend of mine allowed me to borrow hers until I managed to get my own. Within a few weeks and alot of persuading my parents I managed to get my Canon EOS 400D, and have recently upgraded to a Canon EOS 60D In the past 5 years I have taken pictures of literally everything. Looking back at the pictures now, I often wonder how I could of possibly taken those blurry, out of focus pictures and still thought they were good! But whatever you choose to do in life, you can not become successful unless you fail. You learn from your mistakes, and that is now what I have done.
I have been very lucky over the past couple of years and the opportunities I have been given are things that I will never forget.
I have been asked to commission work for large well known Equestrian Companies including Gatehouse, as well as being shortlisted for the photographer role for Horse of the Year Show 2012. In June 2013, I was extremely fortunate to meet and photograph Laura Collett and her lovely team of Horses. This shoot then has become a yearly occasion in which I return to Team Collett to take up to date photographs.
