A Little About Me...

At home, I share my life with my crazy Border Collie and partner in crime, Jasper (left). He’s my soul dog, and I wouldn’t be anywhere without him. Together we have trained in a variety of disciplines, including obedience, agility, scent work and gundog work. He also has a whole repertoire of tricks.

Aside from just photographing all those gorgeous dogs, I spend a lot of my time working, handling and teaching dogs (and their owners) too. I’m fully trained in canine first aid and CPR, and am currently working towards my KCAI teaching qualification. I bring all this experience and knowledge into my photoshoots so that we can get the best photos of your pooch.

I have been in the saddle since I was a little girl, and I still regularly ride today. I have been professionally photographing horses since 2013, and I’m currently just starting my 7th season on covering many of the biggest equestrian events in the South West. I am so lucky to have photographed some of the biggest names in equestrian sports, including Scott Brash, Mary King, William Fox-Pitt and Andrew Nicholson.

 

I have spent thousands of hours photographing horses over the years; I know exactly how they move and how to make them look good!

Nicky is based in Dorset, and covers areas from Cornwall to Gloustershire.
