It’s that time of year again!! The Glorious Twelfth has come around & after a last minute flurry of preparation we are back out in the field for another season.The shooting season follows a traditional pattern starting today ‘The Glorious Twelfth’ with Grouse, Ptarmigan & Snipe followed by Duck, Geese & Partridge on September 1st & finally Woodcock & Pheasant on 1st October.I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph a grouse shoot last Autumn in Yorkshire. Here is a selection of the images from the day.
I am available to photograph your shoot day from just £250 for attendance – during the day I will photograph in a photo-journalistic style, capturing the day as it unfolds. From the beaters to the guns he will tell the story of your shoot. I spend time on peg with each of your guests as they shoot away capturing the great shots and misses!
After the event we work on the images and upload them to a secure gallery for your guests to see. We can also provide a CD of high resolution digital images for you to print from. All of these images are digitally enhanced to remove blemishes etc and finished to the highest standard for your own use. Alternatively, we can provide you with an album of the images expertly designed showing the images at their best in a beautifully bound coffee table book. Prices from £250 for the first book, additional books for your friends or guests are available on request at a discounted rate.

Tomorrow is the last day of the shooting season so I hope you all have a fabulous day. I’ve been out today with the gun and left the camera behind and we all had a great day in the Oxfordshire countryside. Thankfully we finished just in time before the bad weather came in and we were all tucked up in the local pub with ham, egg and chips!
Here is a shot all of my Twitter followers will have seen that I took earlier this month. It was from another lovely Oxfordshire shoot I photographed, we had just had a shower and then on the last drive the rainbow appeared.
It is a fabulous experience being out in the great outdoors and I love it whether I have my camera, a gun and even my flag in hand. Roll on the 1st September 2014!
Have a great year everyone, those that don’t follow me on Twitter may wish to as it’s a bit more active then my blog! @thesportingpic

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all yesterday and I hope you enjoyed the shoot as much as I did. I hope you managed to polish off the Jeroboam of red last night too!
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting two lovely dogs, both famed in Twitter stardom but thankfully neither of them have forgotten their roots. I’m talking about @urbangundog and @ruralgundog two handsome and extremely popular black labs. (They are worth a follow as they are great entertainment!)
We met up on a field owned by one of my farming friends for the session. Urban and Rural’s owners supplied the clothing and the farm supplied the brace of pheasants.
Here are some of my favourite images from the session.
