Sable Island Sea Horses, Nova Scotia


I ventured to Sable Island in July 2017, to photograph the world famous wild horses with sea salt dreadlock manes and tails. There is also an abundance of wildlife on the island to observe, including the world’s largest grey seal colony, and rare seabirds like the Roseate Turn and Ipswich Sparrow. Situated about 300km from Halifax, Sable Island is known to maritime people as the ‘Graveyard of the Atlantic’, as over 300 shipwrecks rest here […]

I travelled around Southern Spain including Seville, Cadiz, Cordoba and Jerez, on a grand tour of some of the finest studs, to photograph the ancient horse breed of Pure Raza Espanola (PRE) better known as Andalusian, and the Spanish Carthusian stallions. The Spanish Carthusian is not a direct breed but it is considered one of the purest strains of Spanish horse, kept in one of the oldest stud books on record. The Andalusian horse has […]

UK Wolf Conservation Trust


I’ve been busy photographing Arctic, North American and European grey wolves at the UKWCT this month – check out my wolf gallery images! In recent years the wolf has sadly been in decline due to the destruction of its habitat and prey, and persecuted by humans. The UKWCT is a non-profit organisation supporting wolf conservation and welfare in the UK and around the world, including an excellent project in Ethiopia, working with the local community […]

Mongolia and China


I have just returned from Outer Mongolia and China, on a riding expedition on the trail of Genghis Khan and the Mongol Warhorse! Mongolia is a vast wilderness, famous for its nomadic habitants, horses and landscapes. The transition between the lush green Central Asia Steppes, Siberian forest and Gobi Desert is amazing, and where you will see reindeer and camel habitats all in the same country. Half of the population are nomadic herdsman and still […]

France


Aiges-Mortes (Dead Water) I visited Aiges-Mortes in the Camargue region of Southern France to capture the famous white Camargue horses in the salt marshes, and I witnessed the most amazing sunrises and sunsets I’ve ever seen, full of bright colours and deep purples. Photographing the semi-wild Camargue horses in the salt marshes and on the beach was challenging, and resulted in a very colourful collection ‘Water Horses of the Camargue‘.
