Equestrian sports photographer specialising in equestrian & field sports photography.
Steve is a full time freelance professional equestrian photographer. He is official photographer to Moor Farm Polo Club based on the Shropshire / Welsh Border. He is currently accredited to Equestrian Sport New Zealand, Polo Times, Hounds Magazine, Horsemanship Magazine, Carriage Driving Magazine, and the world renowned Baily's Hunting Directory, submitting both articles and images to these as well as many other equestrian publications.

When not supplying commercial clients with images, he works closely with private clients on commissions and producing bespoke images and prints. Steve also has a growing list of game shooting, gundog and dog clients. He also enjoys photographing hounds (fox hounds, bloodhounds and beagles), Dogs, and wildlife, and was runner up in the Leica Fieldsports Photographer of the Year competition 2015. When not taking photographs, he spends as much time as possible fly fishing rivers using Western & traditional Japanese Tenkara fly fishing methods, attempting to catch brown trout & grayling by using flies he has 'tied' himself. He is also very keen on watching WWII aircraft, and is helping support the restoration of what will eventually be the only airworthy Hawker Typhoon in the world.
Steve has just completed a very successful exhibition titled 'Working Hands' as part of Shropshire Hills Art Week 2016. He is also a member of The Royal Photographic Society (www.rps.org), working towards his ARPS distinction.
