So incredibly upset and devastated to hear of the death of Harry Mead’s eventing horse Wild Lone, seen here competing at Badminton 2014 to come third overall. After representing Team GB today in the Cross Country section of the World Equestrian Games, Wild Lone collapsed shortly after finishing his run, and despite the best efforts from Harry, his team and the FEI staff to hand, Wild Lone could not be saved. Harry showed incredible courage and resilience competing at Badminton and WEG after returning to riding after he suffered severe injuries from a rotational fall, shattering both of his elbows and leaving doctors doubtful as to whether he would ever be able to ride again. Stay strong, Harry, and best of luck to the rest of the GB Eventing team for tomorrow’s showjumping. Photography by Wildgoose Photography.

Just popped on to say thank you so much for the 1,400 followers! I’ve been so busy with volunteering and starting a new job that I haven’t had much time for photography or editing, but hopefully will be going to The Hand tomorrow :) <3

Wow great photos! I followed your blog. How long have you had your blog up for?

Thank you! I’m really not sure, perhaps a year and a half? <3 :)

New Theme *Update*

I’ve decided to do a little bit of a mid-summer clean up, so I’ve introduced a wonderful new theme from atlasdesigns ( go check them out ) and also meticulously cleaned up my tags page, allowing you to browse my images by discipline if you so wish. 

I’ve also tagged all of my asks, so if you’d like to ask a question but are unsure as to whether it’s been asked before or not, you can now head over to my asks page to browse through all of the past question that I’ve been asked. 

New social media links are also available,  including links to my instagram, facebook, twitter and my all new pinterest page. 

Prints of my images are still available for purchase here

Anonymous asked:

What ISO/shutter speed/ap do you use for action shots normally?

It dramatically varies my lovely anon! It depends on the light, what you’re shooting and how you want your images to come out. On a nice sunny day, a low ISO would be the best, say 100-200 perhaps and a shutter as high as you can get without the images going too dark - perhaps 1000 to 2000? I don’t really tend to play with aperture a lot unless I’m in the right mood as it takes a little while for me to get right, but experimentation is key!


Prints Update;

More prints have been made available for purchase on my photobox gallery for as little as £1.00 each ( aprox. $1.70 / €1.30 - not including shipping ). 

There are a variety of sizes to choose from in all finishes, so please go and check them out and recommend to friends!

May go through some old photos and do some editing. Expect new pics up soon! <3 


kimblewick asked:

I love how your photos come out! Do you have any tips for how to set up a camera to get the best out of it for equestrian photography? As in, ISO, aperture, shutter speed etc? It all goes somewhat over my head at the moment D: thank you xx

Cheers! When I was starting out I’d generally rely quite heavily on the sports setting, but as I learned more about my camera I sort of played around with the settings and whatnot to find out what was the best. The fastest shutter possible for the light available is always the best. I somehow always manage to get ISO predictions the most wrong >.> Obviously if you’re shooting in low light then the ISO needs to be higher to accommodate, but then you’re at risk of pictures looking grainy. Badminton this year is a good example. I set my ISO quite high to compensate for the low light, but when I got home I realised that I had set it waaay too high and most of them were grainy and unusable! Which I think is why I tend to still rely on sports mode xD 

I think one thing I learned the most is to always check your photos when you start taking them and make real time adjustments, which is what I didn’t do at Badminton, hence the disappointment when I got home. Was kicking myself for weeks

EDIT: *massive tip* shoot in RAW format if your camera lets you! When it comes to editing you have so much more control over how the image comes out - google how to shoot in RAW <3
