Im Hannah and I live in the West Midlands I run a small photography business Photography By HR. I have now been supporting EWW for three seasons and have throughly enjoyed the experience and people I have met along the way. It is always an honour to represent EWW at events and I enjoy watching rider/horse combinations progress through the levels. I have a great passion for horses and this is where my photography business began. I have ridden since an early age going through Pony Club, competing and hunting for many years. I also completed an Equine degree at University.  Over the last two years my photography business has progressed into Family, Lifestyle and Weddings and it is going from strength to strength, you can find examples of my work at www.photographybyhr.co.uk

I can’t wait for the Eventing Season to begin, get out with my camera and visit some of the amazing places within the BE calendar

My name is Dave Cameron, I am a part time semi-professional photographer. I have had a love of landscape photography for many years whilst spending much of my time in the highlands of Scotland. My route into equestrian photography is different from most as my own sporting background is based in cycling and racing downhill mountain bikes. I am also the safety steward for Central Scotland horse trials where I used to take some photos of friends competing to pass the time and my love of the sport has grown from there. Since then I have become a BE registered xc course builder for two events. I am based just outside Edinburgh and travel as far afield as Lincolnshire to cover events, the highlight so far has to be photographing at Burghley in 2014

I’m Tanzy (a nickname associated with the surname ‘Lee’ from my days in the Royal Navy), I am originally from Leicestershire where my passion for horses started. I subsequently moved to Somerset and eventually Dorset during my 27 years in the Royal Navy. I’ve always been a keen photographer and I was lucky enough to combine this with the love of horses when my children started to ride. I remain an amateur photographer but hopefully the years of practice are now baring fruit and I can produce some decent shots. More recently I have been lucky enough to have year round opportunities to photograph horses with 7 months of Eventing followed by 5 months of Hunting. I thoroughly enjoy photographing both and get a huge buzz when I manage to capture a really good image. But of course the greatest thrill is when I know that those that star in the photos, or anyone associated with them, love their photos. I am looking forward very much to covering the South West for Eventing Worldwide this season. I wish all the competitors a safe season and the best of luck.

My name is Lucy Hall and along with my passion for Horses, Eventing, Hunting and National Hunt Racing I enjoy Freelance Photography. I grew up and live in the Cotswolds and after travelling or working in different parts of the world I have been drawn back to the beautiful countryside. I have ridden horses since I was 7 years old and they are still a big part of my life in so many different way’s.  I have had a passion and an eye from an early age for photography.  My dream for 30 years was to photograph with the professional photographers at the Badminton Lake, at the Mitsabishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.  This was achieved in 2011 where I had the best seat in the house!!  My inspiration came from International Equestrian Photographer Bob Langrish MBE, I have admired his work since the early 90’s when he gave me an equestrian book full of his commissioned images.  One piece of advice I was given from a fellow photographer before my first Badminton was

“Listen lots, say little and act like you belong” this has stuck with me ever since.

Most of my time from March through to November is taken up on the Eventing circuit photographing all three disciplines – Dressage, Cross Country and Show Jumping and as I’m conveniently located to so many BE Events my weekends tend to get very busy!
