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...

Dramatic Studio Lighting | Horse and dog photography

I have always been a natural light photographer, I've never liked formal studio photography for people and only ever used artificial lighting for 'fill flash' to lift the shadows when natural light was not enough to provide a professional result. My involvement as official photographer for the Lexus Melbourne Cup's Tour of  Boyup Brook in 2018 saw me updating my the studio equipment, softboxes and backdrops and I found myself really enjoying some high and low key (black or...

Horse and Dog Photography Model Database Application

Is your horse or dog model material? While everyone can admire a beautiful animal, looks arn't everything and sometimes the superstars I need are the ones with character, confidence with new people and situations, a great work ethic and willingness to please their handlers, perhaps special skills, tricks or in the case of dogs - a high level of obedience in particular with solid stays or off lead recalls. I require a database of horse and dog photography models...

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...
