One spring Sunday afternoon I went up to Chesterfield to meet with Fliss and her horse Matilda. This was one photoshoot I was really looking forward to for many reasons.
Fliss had been given one of my gift vouchers for Christmas back in 2016 from recollection. Sadly didn’t get Matilda booked in until a while later due to horse issues and lameness which happens from time to time. I’m a horse owner so can sympathise there, as these things are out of our control, so as an animal photographer, an element of empathy in my job comes part and parcel of it really. Eventually, Matilda was well enough to have an on location photoshoot. So I met up with Fliss’ husband so he could navigate us to where I would be meeting up with Fliss and Matilda.
The first part of the shoot would be taking place with the kind permission of the Land Owner, who Fliss had had contact with in a beautiful rapeseed field full of dreamy yellowness! I can say I was in my element with this! It’s not often I get to go on location so it is exciting.
The second part was back to the park where we had first met. A short walk through the wood and there were Bluebells, little rock waterfalls and wild Garlic. So we spent the last part of the photoshoot here ensuring not to trample on all the loveliness around us. It really was a great shoot to do and have featured a short photofilm of the shoot and some favourite photos from the session.
