I am an experienced equine and portrait photographer based in Kent, South East England. My professional career began in the heart of the London fashion industry, shooting new faces for modelling agencies; this provided me with valuable creative skills and development that has influenced all my later ventures. However, my enduring passion and key area of work remains with equine photography.
The goal for my work has always been to evoke the same enthusiasm that I feel for my subjects, in my audience, no matter who they are. I work to showcase the heart and character of equines and equestrianism to those who might not otherwise be drawn to it.
Working freelance allows me the flexibility to undertake a wide range of commissions and events, developing a broad set of skills and experience at the same time. I have covered everything from small family shows, pony club events and hunter trials to international competition at the British Derby Meeting and Royal International Horse Show as part of the press team for Hickstead.
Although specialising in the equestrian world I do also take wedding and portrait commissions and I am always keen in turning a hand to new photographic ventures. Whether the subject be horse or human (or on the odd occasion a car!) I strive to deliver the very best to my clients, both private and professional alike.
“Lotte joined the Hickstead team as the photographic intern in 2012, and was a real asset – she worked hard, took lots of great photos, both of the equestrian action and also behind the scenes, and we’re looking forward to working with her again this season.”
-Victoria Spicer, Press Officer Hickstead
“Can’t thank you enough for the fantastic photo’s, you are welcome here any time if you ever wish to take any more.”
– Jayne Gray, Grays PRE Stud
“I have always wanted an equine photoshoot with my pony and I was very lucky to have Lotte come to my yard and spend the morning photographing us. She had amazing patience with my not so cooperative pony. I am very pleased with the resulting images which were promptly sent to me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lotte to anyone wanting a photoshoot. The photos are lovely to have. Thanks again.”
– Sam Nathan
“Fantastic experience, love all the photos we have had done and had a great days shoot.”
