Coventry’s Wing-It theatre staged the musical “Rent” at the Albany and we were delighted to have been asked along to do the production photos.

With a cast of over 30 performers, this was a lively, slick and professional show and was great fun to photograph. It reminded me of why I love my job. There are not many people who are lucky enough to basically get their own private showing of such a performance!

Dress rehearsal photography

With this production we were able to attend the dress rehearsal which allows us full access to the auditorium without disturbing the paying public. This allows us get some great shots with no disruptions. We also stayed for the first performance too, which we filmed for promotional purposes.

We’ve just come back from a brilliant weekend photographing the Appaloosa Horse Club UK’s national championships at Morton Morrell equestrian college. We’ve been the official photographers at this event for a number of years, but this time around we were delighted to have been able to sponsor the Supreme Championships too.

This is such a lovely equestrian event to photograph – it really is one of the highlights of our working year working with such friendly people.

All of the the photographs from the weekend are now online and can be found in our equestrian photography gallery. As a thank you to those that bought photographs from us at the show, we’ve uploaded a complimentary copy to our Facebook page so don’t forget to tag yourself.

 Despite it being summer we have managed to get a days hunting in, in the form of river rat hunting with the terriers, this great shot shows what fun we had on the river with harry and his sealyhams.
