Hounds Please!


Although its "out of season" theres still plenty going on with the foxhounds, as they start getting fit for the new season. Kitty and I spent a pleasenat couple of hours at kennels this week, getting some photos for a forthcoming article in support of hunting.
We also had a good day at Gables Farm dog show, photographing many of the winners . Well done to all those who did so well, and for raising more funds for Gables.



On a less favourable note, you may have noticed our website is down. This appears to be due to the malicious activities of an individual, and its currently being dealt with..... meanwhile you can always follow us on the blog and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Farlap-Canine-Photography/103783183000846  and also farlap fieldsports here until we get this issue sorted out.

More Horse Play

We have had a rEally horsey week this last week, with three stable visits. We are running a special offer in July/August with FREE stable visits in Devon/Cornwall. We are also doing beach photo shoots so if you want to see your horses in the sea or galloping on the sands, get in touch ASAP as there are only limited days where we can do this because of tide restrictions. Again, beach sessions in July/August are free in Devon & Cornwall and we have some great locations for beach photography.
We have heard a few moans, mainly from open dog shows, that when the secretary has rung to book us, we are already booked elsewhere, so a quick reminder to anyone wanting to book Farlap for their show or event, we do need as much notice as possible on dates as we get very very overbooked in the summer, and to avoid the disapointment of having us say "no" you need to give us your dates EARLY. If we dont have a booking form, then the booking has not been made!

Farewell Bill


For those that dont know Bill, he was a handsome chap, full of charm and very talented. He also helped me win the coveted "Uk Sports photographer of the Year" award in 2007. Bill was none other than a very special labrador retriever and together Bill and I appeared in The Field and The Western morning news, Horse and Hound, Shooting Gazette and lots more places. So it was sad news to hear from Graham his owner, that he had passed away. Thanks Bill for everything, and you will remain immortilised on my landrover wheel cover!
Despite the warm weather we have been hard at work this week, and its appropriate that beach photo shots are popular this time of year. We have had two in the last few days, and they are great fun.
Now for something completely different, as someone once said!
I have no interest in motorised transport whatsoever but was happy to do this mini photoshoot for our very dear friend Fred. Happy Birthday!!!

Two day Endurance........long haul!

This weekend saw the long haul of a two day EGB endurance, at our favourite location Boconnoc. We have been  the official photographers of this event for seven years and always look forward to it on the calendar, and this year was no exception. Perfect long distance riding weather and also photography weather made it an enjoyable weekend. Photos are now online for viewing at http://www.farlap-photography.com/section151915.html


The week has been pretty busy with a cocker spaniel photo shoot,, a basset photo shoot and producing some cattle images for a Canadian App company.....whod have thought a cow from Devon would get to be so internationally famous on a smart phone! Tomorrow the tables are turned somewhat as we have a national dog magazine coming out to photograph here at Farlap, for a feature, so its my turn to be in front of the lens for a change!
A bit of news for my Dog World "show" clients, the "we won at" adverts for all forthcoming shows will be bigger and cost less, yes really! so we look forward to seeing you all at the summer shows, starting with Dunster/Minehead.
