Meet the Photographer

ABOUT LOTTE

I am an experienced, professional equestrian photographer based in the south east of England and offering a range of photographic services to equestrians, including personal portrait shoots, stud cards, event photography, editorial work and sales brochure images.

Having ridden and loved horses since I was a child, I understand that every single horse is different, as is the relationship between them and their owner. That’s why I tailor my approach carefully to ensure flexibility and personalisation is at the heart of everything I do.

I work with private horse owners who would like to commission a personal portrait shoot, and who may be happy to hand over the reins of creative control to me or have a very clear idea of the look and feel of their final shot. I also work extensively with professional riders and bloodstock producers who need crystal clear yet beautiful images of horses’ confirmation and movement for sales purposes. I’m equally experienced at capturing the thrill and fun of an equestrian competition or event and working with brands to produce editorial-quality images for use online and in print.

I make it my mission to get to know you and your horse, and where appropriate your brand, ensuring I understand your vision and ethos. This means that when I start to shoot, I know I’m capturing the images that will mean the most to you. I never pick up the camera and hope for the best – I plan every shot and treat the horse like a model so that I can head off to edit the photographs knowing that there will always be the perfect shots to fit the original client brief.

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.

The shoot was easy and relaxed, I just got to work and Lotte did what she needed to do around that – no forced, and potentially awkward, posing!

Lotte could clearly understand how I wanted my work to be portrayed, and I think she captured that very well.

Can’t thank you enough for the fantastic photo’s, you are welcome here any time if you ever wish to take any more.

I recently had Lotte out for a personal shoot with myself and my horse and I couldn’t be happier with the fantastic pictures she produced. Her images are gorgeous and her enthusiasm towards and during the shoot was infectious. I would highly recommend Lotte and definitely use her again in the future!
