Equestrian event photographer at The Priory Equestrian Centre in Surrey

Today I visited The Priory Equestrian Centre, Frensham in Surrey. I was the official photographer for Wey Valley Riding Club and their Spring Dressage event on 10th April – one of a range in their Omnibus 2011 Schedule, all of which I should be attending.

You can view the website of Wey Valley RC and find details of all their events, membership, news and results here: They also have a Facebook Page, through which you can view their activities, chat and news – accessible via their website.

The contact for these events at WVRC is Storme Whittaker:

We had pretty amazing and warm weather, which made for good opportunities for equestrian photography. 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. The indoor arena is unfortunately very poorly lit and has virtually no natural daylight.

There were two areas, plus a warm up area and varied classes / events throughout the day – all of which kept me fully occupied until the end of the event in mid / late afternoon.

The images were all available for viewing on the same day. For around 8 weeks you can view all my images in the order online section on the website: There are a few images here, just to give you a flavor of the event.

I look forward to capturing images of all the riders throughout 2011 and in particular at some of the jumping events which tend to produce natural opportunity for more dramatic images.
