Last day of the season tomorrow – see if you can go out on a high! #FieldSports

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!

#hunt pictures from the VWH now online!

A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to get invited along to a Vale of White Horse Hunt in Wiltshire by another great Country sports photographer Kay Thompson based in Cirencester whom I was introduced to on Twitter. I was keen to get some hunt images under my belt before the end of the season and after a shout out on Twitter Kay invited me along to the rather grand Vale of White Horse Hunt who met on this particular day in a village north of Swindon. Having only ever taken a few pictures on one previous hunt I was a total novice to this sport. My attraction was the spectacle of these ladies and gentlemen on horseback parading through the British Countryside with a pack of hounds leading the way.

I was not disappointed, it was a great day, full of wonderful people, laughter and an incredible sight to photograph. Here are a few of the images from the hunt. Those that attended the hunt and wanted to see more pictures please click here. The password for the gallery the name of the village where the hunt met.

Special thanks to Kay for making this possible for me and also driving me around all day!

Showsley Estate Shoot 15th December

Last Saturday I attended a fabulous shoot at the Showsley Estate, near Towcester with some pretty keen shots! We started the day with a brilliant duck drive, followed by five more mixed drives (mainly pheasant) throughout the day stopping for roast lamb in the shooting lodge at lunch time.  A great day for all concerned with a final bag of 373 finished off with homemade cake and tea in the lodge.

I am currently working on an album for each of the guns that the host is giving them as a momento of the day. Here is a selection of my shots from the day…..
