Equestrian photography is a wide-ranging and varied subject. It is not just portraits of a horse & rider at Golden Hour!

Equestrian photography covers any photography which includes an equine. This could be a portrait, but it could also be any of the many other equestrian disciplines and sports.

We want you to be confident enough to shoot any equine activity!

About Nico

I am a photographer, website designer and hosting provider living in Oakham, Rutland.

I work with clients who are sole traders and others which are FTSE companies. They are equally important to me.

If you need commercial photography, editorial photography, event photography, lifestyle, equestrian or wedding photography, then I can help you, with over 30 years experience in these areas.

I also teach photography, both one-to-one and in small groups. I mentor photographers with a range of experience, from beginners to working professionals.

I have a varied set of skills, having worked for well known web design and...
...web analytics companies in parallel to my photography.

I design, host and maintain websites for clients as varied as farms, interior designers and equestrian centres, as well as for bloggers and sportspeople.

I am the Public Relations Officer for the Midlands Point-to-Point Association, a role which utilises my PR and social media skills to promote horse racing both online and in the National press.
