Event photography: From £250 per day

As a solo photographer, I can be booked to cover events, but I do not have a team of photographers to cover larger events with lots of competitive activities taking place in different places.

However, if you require quality photos of a small event, or if you want a series of photos that give a flavour of a day at a countryside show or fair, I can deliver. View my galleries on this website of various events I have photographed including Country Fest, Westmorland County Show, Lowther Show, CLA Game Fair, FHAGBI Inspections, Witherslack Horse Show and Cartmel Show.

I do not employ minions to churn out photographs en-mass. I have complete quality control and I process each photo individually rather than resorting to batch processing.


The Original Friesian Experience in Cartmel

Tracey and Rynardt Venter, who own Black Horses Friesian Stud in Cartmel, are my dear friends. They allow me to get up close and personal to the Friesian horses in their care at any time of the day, and in every season and weather condition! You can see how beautiful the horses are on this website. I also take commissions (Special Black Horses rate) if you want photographs of you riding and / or driving as part of booking a Friesian Experience with Tracey.

PLEASE NOTE: All Friesian Experience photo sessions are subject to availability and my photographer costs are based on top of you booking and paying your deposit with Black Horses in advance. Find out more at: blackhorses.co.uk

I offer a range of options where I can photograph you on country hacks, beach rides and / or a carriage driving experience. The photo shoot can include a mixture of intimate portraits of you interacting with the horses before the ride / drive, and action shots of you riding and cantering over the fells or on the beach. If there are any particular photos you would like me to take, just ask.

Love the Dress! Photoshoot

Half day from: £120

If you’re about to wrap your wedding dress in tissue and put it on the back of the wardrobe or you are planning to sell it on eBay, think again. The Love the Dress concept is simple. Give your bridal gown another outing and arrange a relaxed post-wedding photo shoot of you sitting on one of their magnificent black Friesian horses, trotting through fields of buttercups or daisies. The horses are trained to the highest standard and have been used on numerous fashion photo shoots.

“Our horses really enjoy they experience and they love having their photos taken,” said Tracey Venter, owner of Black Horses Friesian Stud. “The sessions are fun and friendly and we welcome creative ideas from the client, however bizarre. If you wanted to take the horse splashing through a stream or walking on the beach, we can arrange it.”

I can help with your styling, hair and make-up, or we could arrange for a professional hair and make-up artist at an additional cost. Find out more about the Black Horses and their rates at: blackhorses.co.uk

Gift Vouchers

Gift Vouchers are available for a Full Day or Half Day Animal Photoshoot session. Give the gift of a photo shoot of a loved one with their favourite pet (of any description - large or small!) in the Lake District (additional mileage charge of 40p per mile if you require me to travel to locations outside Lakeland).

Location

I live near Cartmel in the Lake District National Park, which boasts an endless supply of fantastic locations - from rolling fells and grassy fields, to ancient leafy woodlands and craggy mountains.

The Lake District also boasts more than its fair share of lakes, waterfalls, rivers and seaside locations - all providing magnificent backdrops and playgrounds. I can help choose the right location for the photoshoot, or you may already have a favourite place in mind. You could choose a leafy woodland or on the open fells, or if your dogs love water we could take them to the beach, a lake or a small river. You are very welcome to bring other family members along.


The Photoshoot

I like to spend a bit of time getting to know you and your pets first so that everyone is relaxed. It’s always best to do portraits before any exertion and before the dogs or horse get too wet or muddy! Ideas for photos Intimate portraits of you with your pet whether it is a cat, dog, horse, tortoise, chicken or any other animal or bird! You and your pets in a group shot – always a challenge! Individual portraits of each animal ! Fun and games running, fetching their favourite toys, jumping over logs, action in water.


Gift Voucher for Half Day Animal Photoshoot: £120

Includes disc of 30 studio edited high resolution images (and 30 low resolution watermarked versions to use on social media such as Facebook).


Gift Voucher for Full Day Animal Photoshoot: £200

Logistics

Photo shoots

Sessions are allowed to run their natural course and will usually take a couple of hours, but if you are bringing more than one animal, it is likely to take longer - provided the horse, dog or other animal is interested and happy.


Location

I can travel anywhere in Britain (or the world!) for an agreed travel cost.

There is no mileage charge to a location within a 40 mile radius of Cartmel, Cumbria. There will be an additional mileage charge of 40p per mile if I have to travel to locations outside Lakeland.


Payment method

I require payment for the photography on the day of the shoot by Bank Transfer, cash or cheque made payable to: Mrs S Kitching.


Weather

It rarely happens, but if the weather is absolutely terrible and we just can’t get the photos you were hoping for, I will not charge for my time.


Post-production

After the photo shoot, I will personally and professionally edit the best photographs with love and style and either Dropbox them to you or pop them on a disc and post to you within a week of the shoot taking place. I process and edit all of my own photos using the latest photographic Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop software. The majority will be in colour and where the subject lends itself well, I will also edit a small selection in black & white / sepia.

I do not employ minions to churn out my photographs en-mass. I have complete quality control and I process each photo individually rather than resorting to batch processing.

You may print the images yourself (for non-commercial purposes only) or, alternatively, I can provide a professional quality printing service for an additional cost.
