The New Forest in Hampshire - UK is famous for its wildlife, but visitors may be surprised by the 2000+ wild 'New Forest ponies' that walk freely through the national park. These are one of the most recognisable pony breeds in the UK, and records of their existence date back to 500,000BC!

Q. Can I use one of your photos as inspiration/reference?
A. Of course! I always love seeing my work used by other people, BUT please let me know, credit me and, of course, link me to it though!
If you want to sell this work afterwards however, I may charge a small usage fee, typically about 10% :)

Q. Can I use your photos as stock/for manipulations?
A. No, sorry. These are my images and not for free use. If you want to discuss this please note me.

Q. Can you critique my work?
A. I really enjoy critiquing other peoples work, so if you want one i'll be more than happy to oblige. Just drop me a note or a comment with the link and i'll get back to you!
Hi everyone,

First off I'd like to confirm that I'm still here, and am still out taking photos. Apologies that I'm not active on here at all recently. I've been very busy with various things over the past few months, and really haven't had time to get on here and respond to anything. This does not mean I'm leaving though! I will try to get back on here a lot more in the next few days, and should have new uploads up soon. I currently have over 1000 comments and nearly 700 deviations to look at, so please bear with me as I catch up!

Many more up-to-date pieces can be found on my Facebook page here:

Or on my website here:

Thanks for bearing with me, and I hope to speak to you soon,

Your photographs are amazing, you're very talented! I certainly can learn a lot from you. Have to go out and try your lightplay technique now!
I'm only just starting out so my photographs are far from the quality you have to offer but I'd love to take you up on your offer of critiquing… (and any other shots you may find interesting from my gallery :P:)
