As I’ve mentioned before I actively avoid wedding photography and I do not advertise for them. However I do make exceptions on the rare occasion. This summer was one of these rare occasions.  I have known Martin & Mel for some time now, not only have we done...

Our Friends at Valle Stud

Our Friends at Valle Stud

Years ago when I was starting out in equine photography, I contacted this little stud completely out of the blue. I asked if I could photograph the beautiful Spanish stallions… and the rest as they say is history!  It was the beginning of my horse studio...

Lockdown Doggies…

Lockdown Doggies…

The winter lockdown was an odd one for us as I’m sure it was for many. Through what would normally be a busy time for us helping our lovely clients sort out prints and wall art in time for Christmas presents it was weirdly quiet. Time for some lockdown...

Mia, Ven and of Course Alfie

Mia has a new friend! In the form of a great big grey Spanish stallion called Vendaval (Vendi or Ven for short).  He is sweet and cuddly with the most amazing mane. However he is the dirtiest horse I have ever met. Poor Mia has a big job on her hands to try...

“Our photoshoot was so much fun and so relaxed it felt more like a walk with a friend!

Our photographs taken by Johanna are stunning and capture the essence of my relationship between my dog and I effortlessly! We now have our own pieces of art on our walls that we treasure.”

– Pamela & Daphne

Thank you so much for the whole experience! I did wonder what you would be able to get with my three as they often look a bit miserable with posed shots, but it was so relaxed and the dogs all seemed to enjoy themselves…a bit too much in Kepler’s case…. We’re delighted with the results – you have definitely captured their individual characters.

– Sam & Fingal, Kepler, Bunty

“I have used Jo twice now, each time Jo has always built a rapport with Dollie and she has been able to capture some beautiful photos.

Jo has this amazing gift to be able to bond with an animal as I found out when I took Dollie to be photographed. If you would like a brilliant photographer who captures the photos you love in the possible way; then I definitely recommend Jo 100% and now would not let anyone else photograph Dollie.”

– Leah & Dollie
