Equestrian Event Photography Website Update

All equestrian event photos since 2015 (with a list of archived events from 2007-2015) are available again at https://www.equine-photography.com.au/ I've had a number of computer and website challenges for the past few weeks so to resolve the event photo website as quickly as possible at this busy time of year, I have renewed with zenfolio.  This means all your saved favourites and previous order details are still accessible if you have created an account on the website. IMPORTANT CHANGES I've made...

Balingup Medieval Carnivale 2017

Even though we live in the south west, this weekend was the first time I have gone to the Balingup Medieval Carnivale, and wow was it everything that I expected and more! The atmosphere was amazing with the majority of visitors also wearing period costume, so with being surrounded by knights and ladies, kings and queens, vikings, wizards and the odd dragon or two it was very easy to feel like you had just stepped back in time.  The...

All photographs can be viewed and purchased here:  AMR South West State Championship Show...

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...

All photos from the main arena Show Jumping and Show Horse classes at Bunbury Horseman’s Gymkhana on 19 June 2016 have been uploaded to my event photography website http://equine-photography.com.au For something a little bit different, I have created a video slideshow of some of the photos from the Show Horse and Show Jumping classes. Congratulations to everyone who participated, especially seeing as the weather was less than co-operative, especially for the bigger heights in the showjumping! Here are a...
