Horse and Dog Photography Model Database

While I am technically still on holidays (the first since 2007 that I have officially booked into my calendar in advance), I have had the chance to finalise one of the major projects that I have been working on for a very long time. One of the services I offer is commercial photography for equine, rural and agri business such as horse, cattle and sheep studs and livestock fodder companies.  I am working with more equine related businesses each...

Merry Christmas – 2017

Well 2017 has gone so quickly, I just can’t believe its nearly Christmas already!    I’ve done some awesome photography sessions over the last couple of weeks with some gorgeous fur-kids and will hopefully get their blog posts written up over the holiday period, but until then I wanted to wish all my clients and their families a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year – of course there is no better way to do that than with cute...

2007-2014 Archived Horse and Dog Event Photos

I have finally had time to go back through my archives and compile a list of horse and dog event photography from 2007-2014.  This includes all portrait sessions and commercial photography sessions for this time period. I’m not planning to upload all these photos to the new photography website because a) there is unlikely to be much call for them and b) during this time period only purchased photos were fully edited so it would take me months to edit...

Farm Life – Working Border Collie Sheep Dogs

Not that we have enough sheep for our Border Collies to be considered ‘working sheep dogs’ at the moment, they are none the less farm dogs through and through.  I realised recently that I haven’t posted any photos of the canine fur kids lately, and because its too hot to do anything else, here are some photos of the Border Collie Brigade. Minus Freckles who (in typical Freckles fashion), wouldn’t stand still long enough for me to get a...

Bolts surgical injury stitches

Farm Life – More Vet Visits

We don’t seem to be having much luck with our pets lately:( Poor Bolt earned a visit and overnight stay at the vets for surgery to fix a great big hole that he ripped in his side.  He was running with the other Border Collies and it seems that he ran straight into the trailer. The injury looked fairly small from the outside, but when the vet opened it up to clean before suturing, he found that it went...

Farm Life – Border Collie Farm Dogs

The puppies Ryley and Freckles have settled in really well and have been accepted by all the older dogs.  They already show natural instinct for working sheep (and chickens) and incredible intelligence and are likely to give every one of the adult border collies a good run for their money once they grow up! If you enjoy my artwork and photography, please share it with your friends!...

Ryley

Farm Life – Borderline Crazy

Border Collie dogs are like potato chips – you can’t just have one or two. Or even three or four.  Some people can’t even stop at five…some people (not looking in the mirror) are borderline crazy (or bordering on insane – take your pick) and end up with SIX Border Collies. Now in my defence, I have tried to work with Trinity for two years, but she is definitely my husbands dog and simply will not work sheep for...
