Today I visited a regular previous haunt for me in ‘photo-land’ from earlier in my career as an event photographer – the Priory Equestrian Centre, Frensham in Surrey. I was the official photographer for Wey Valley Riding Club and their Spring Dressage event on 18th April – one of a range in their Omnibus 2010 Schedule.
You can view the website of Wey Valley RC and find details of all their events, membership, news and results here: http://www.wvrc.co.uk/

We had pretty amazing and warm weather, which made for reasonable opportunities for equestrian photography. Albeit, sunny days do make for directional light and harsher shadows, resulting in challenging conditions to photograph ‘action’ shots.
I captured the various classes ongoing throughout the day and focused primarily on the outdoor arena, until around 2pm when that section completed. There were two arenas, plus a warm up area and varied classes / events throughout the day – all of which kept me fully occupied and pretty tired by the end of the event in mid / late afternoon.
The images will be available for viewing very soon. For a limited time of around 6-8 weeks you can view all my images in the order online section on the website: http://www.martinlewis.biz/ There are a few images here, just to give you a flavor of the event.
