Fun Ride Photography

I’ve been photographing fun rides for a few years now, so I do consider myself to be very good at it! It’s one of the equestrian events in Shropshire and Staffordshire that I really do enjoy and it’s quite different to the commercial photography and videography that occupies me during the week. it’s still a […]

2020 is here!

Well it’s the start of another year! I finished 2019 as always in the Apley Farm Shop Santa’s Grotto, which was a fantastic event where we got some brilliant photos.
