I’m always intrigued as to which images people choose and I don’t normally talk about my own personal ‘favourites’.  However! I’ll keep this post short and sweet, but this image pretty much sums up my current dreams and intentions.  When life seems crazier than ever, when everyone is rushing around, wearing ‘busy’ like a badge of honour, some days I just want to get off.  Well, actually I want to get off the merry-go-round of the everyday, get ON my horse and cut loose.  I love riding bareback.  It’s like being 12 again, before falling off started to hurt. I want to feel the wind in my hair (sorry Health & Safety), the salt on my skin, the power and movement of the horse underneath me. I want to feel risk and excitement, for my senses to be truly awakened. This image embodies freedom to me.  Galloping away, carefree, to a wilder place.    I can’t imagine many things better. I truly believe we’re losing our sense of ‘wild’ these days – so many rules, expectations to conform, we are in danger of our individuality being diluted. Wild, not as in partying and doing outrageous things, but as in re-connecting,

The Equus Noir Journey Continues

I’m recently back from a trip to photograph the white horses of the Camargue, somewhere I have visited before and have always felt and incredible draw to return. The horses in this area are incredibly brave and hardy – originally bred to work the (terrifying!!) black bulls of the region. I am definitely not a bull person. Obviously a lot of photographers travel to this area every year and you can see why. Watching the horses gallop through the lagoons is mesmerising & exhilarating. It makes your heart race just being there. It’s a horse lovers’ nirvana, with the horses curious, enquiring & friendly. It’s a true privilege just to spend time among these beautiful animals. My challenge was to take my signature ‘Equus Noir’ style to the Camargue, stay true to my own personal journey and create something unique. I’m really pleased with this image – and it fills me with energy to continue the Equus Noir journey. Don’t get me wrong – temptation was great – and I’ve enjoyed capturing those spectacular gallops in a more traditional way too. Movement fascinates me – so brace for impressionist style images. But this post is about owning your dreams and

Equus Noir

When I first started photographing horses it was like stepping into a magical horsey Narnia…  Combining two things I really loved.  I still believe that if you really love what you shoot, it shows.  I’ve always wanted to produce horse photography that horsey people will love.  Shape, form, body language – it can truly make or break an image – and those ‘in the know’, know! I still love capturing horses, their magnificence, their spirit, their beauty in many different ways. This is one of my favourite images – definitely ‘less is more’ but still showing the beautiful stallion in all his exquisite curvy, powerful glory. It makes me want to go and run my hand over his beautiful cresty neck, or over the powerful curve of his hind quarters.  I’ve been working on this style of photography for some time, and only now do I feel I’ve got it right.   Welcome to “Equus Noir’. For the full collection, please see my ‘Latest Work’ gallery. Keep following those dreams xx

Where does time go…?

Apologies that I don’t update my blog as often as I would like, but it’s been one of those years, blessed with amazing travels, great commissions and the joy of generally feeling very very lucky to be able to do what I do… Prints have sold across the world this year – and I value every single one of those sales, thank you.  It’s lovely to think of my work on the walls of homes far far away.  So…a HUGE thank you to everyone has shown an interest in, and purchased my work this year.  Please do keep in touch and check back for the latest images. As another year comes to an end, I always feel a bit reflective, planning what the next year might bring – and there are few personal projects on the go for next year, as well as travels back to Iceland. Take care everyone, and have a very Merry Christmas xx

Bareback, Wyoming.

I was very lucky to have my work featured in the Sunday Telegraph this weekend, and putting together the piece for the paper got me thinking. Why do I love working with horses so much? This could be a long conversation… But just one of the things I love about photographing horses – and indeed having a horse in your life full stop – is that they enable you to slow you down and teach you to live in the moment, to enjoy Mindfulness. In this world where we all race round like crazy, a horse can transport you to your own private world. One in which there is no wifi, no phone signal, no one hassling you. Just you and the horse – and often in a wild open landscape somewhere. Sun (or rain!) on your face, wind in your hair, just horse and mother nature. Simplicity, peace, meaning. While we all love the big action shots, some of the more abstract, minimal images are among my favourites – the ‘quiet’ images.  Shape, form, colour, light and shade, the unmistakably beautiful curves of a horse’s physique – all the things you start to appreciate more, if you take the

Welcome

A very warm welcome to my new website – thanks for visiting! Every so often I’ll share an image here and tell you a little bit about it.  ‘The making of an image’ for those who are interested, or just to share a special moment on my equine adventures. Until then, I’ve just returned from a trip to Portugal where I met many beautiful Lusitano horses.  There are many dramatic images to follow, but after a big photo shoot, it’s lovely to enjoy a little quiet time and reflect on the photography and of course the amazing horses. This peaceful image is already a favourite, I can see it hanging in a living room, bedroom or even a super chic ‘salle de bain’.  It will be available as a limited edition print very soon – you can email me to register your interest – but in the meantime, the first proof print might just be hanging on the wall in my office for daily consideration! Thanks for joining me & I hope you enjoy the photographs. Kerry x
