Eventing Times

2020 will offer the most challenging and significant role of my career to date. I haven't taken the most conventional route to get here, however it was always my desire to be part of a publication.

Working as a freelance photographer and journalist for a number of publications (including Eventing Worldwide, e-Venting, Grand Prix Magazine) before joining Irish Eventing Times in 2017. With IET’s overwhelming success, I was given the opportunity to launch Eventing Times, in partnership with IET, that would provide coverage of Eventing across all continents. As Editor in Chief, I produce photography, articles, reports and interviews within the sport of Eventing, manage a team of contributors and liaise with commercial companies and clients. Currently working towards the 2020 launch of our "glossy" magazine showcasing features, articles, and much more from the sectors of Equestrianism, Country Lifestyle, Fashion, Automotive, Food & Drink and Travel.

Equine Portraiture

My greatest privilege has become photographing clients and their horses, at home or on location.

Capturing effortlessly beautiful and natural images of you both, then creating elegant pieces of art to decorate your home with, ensuring you have timeless memories to keep.

Wills Oakden Eventing

I am a proud supporter and sponsor of Great British event rider Wills Oakden. I have been photographing Wills and following his progress since 2012 before becoming an official sponsor in 2014. 

Wills is one of Scotland’s leading event riders and has represented Great Britain on a number of occasions, most recently at the 2018 Nations Cup Leg in Strzegom, Poland where the team won Silver and Wills won individual Bronze with Cooley Ramiro. 2018 also saw Wills debut in the Event Rider Masters Series where he finished 8th at Chatsworth International Horse Trials and 11th in the series finale at Blair Castle International Horse Trials.

2019 proved to be an incredible year for Wills, riding a double clear on his Badminton debut with (Balcarres Eventing Syndicate's) Cooley Ramiro, finishing in 25th place. Who knows where 2020 will take him!
