The Glorious Twelfth

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.DSGM- ML-IMG_2945_120The 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.DSGM- ML-IMG_4639_044I 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.

Here’s to a great shooting season – photographs & birds!

First shoot of the season teaser pictures now online!

On Wednesday I was at my first shoot of the season, a partridge day at the fantastic Tittershall shoot in Buckinghamshire. It really was a great day with a lovely bunch of people and fabulous hospitality from the team at Tittershall. Find out more about Tittershall by clicking here.

In the meantime here are some of my favourite images from the day. I will be putting the rest onto a Photobox gallery overnight so keep checking back.

Where do pheasants go on holiday?

Ever wonder where all the birds that escape the shooting season end up in the summer? Well, on a recent trip to the Scilly Isles I spotted numerous pheasants and partridge sunning themselves on Tresco! A long migration of 30 something miles from the UK mainland to Scilly or maybe they hop on the Scillonian?

Only joking! The Tresco Estate owned by the Dutchy of Cornwall  is leased by the Dorrien Smith family who run their own shoot on the island. For those that have never been to the Isles of Scilly I’d strongly recommend it. It really is heaven on earth and the Tresco estate and the Abbey Gardens are breathtaking!

I just need to get back there now for the shooting season…. Hmmmm….
