Bunbury Photography – Horsemans Gymkhana

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...

Tent Pegging Light Horse Brigade

10th Light Horse Brigade Bunbury – South West Photography

The 10th Light Horse Bunbury Troop also put on a riding and Tent Pegging display at the Dardanup Heavy Horse Show at Heritage Park.  Although Tent Pegging originated as a Military manoeuvre in which cavalry soldiers would gallop through enemy camps, using their lances and swords to remove tent pegs to collapse tents and cause confusion in order to gain the upper hand in a surprise attack. Over time, tent pegging was used as a cavalry drill for weapons...

Team Australia Liberty Horse Equestrian Display

Liberty Horse Equestrian Display – South West Photography

Today was a rather auspicious day – its been a long time coming, but I am very excited to finally be setting up my studio gallery:)  I had planned to just move the boxes in, but got a little carried away and started unpacking everything.  I felt like a kid at Christmas unpacking all of my art supplies, books and art magazines – many of which I haven’t seen for well over 18 months! My mind is racing with...

Elephant Rocks Denmark

Denmark, Busselton and Albany Photography

We recently spent a week away on holiday down south in Denmark.  While we were there we did a fair bit of travelling to see as much of the south west coast as we could, which gave me the opportunity to take photos of some very beautiful places.  I havn’t had a chance to edit them all yet, but here are some of my favourites.  ...
