Whether your horse or dog is totally nuts and runs around at 100mph or is really chilled and loves getting all the attention; I can work with any horse or dog and capture the true spirit of them to cherish them forever.

Hi! I’m Esther Marie and I’m an equine and dog fine art photographer in the quiet village of Newhey in Lancashire but I work all over the UK and abroad.

My favourite things in the world are my dogs, horse riding and spending time with horses. When I’m not photographing you’ll find me running in the beautiful Pennines near where I live or watching a good series on Netflix! I couldn’t live without my friends and family, my dogs and my camera. I spend a lot of time with my animal babies and nothing makes me happier than laughing with my friends and family.

After studying photography at Swansea University, I thought I had better get a grown-up job and trained and worked as a forensic photographer at Greater Manchester Police for five years. This was very exciting but not really me!

 So, I handed my badge in and became a self-employed professional photographer after realising I could put together my love of art, horses, dogs, and photography! I’ve now been an animal photographer for 15 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love it.

My photography style is natural, emotive and artistic. I just love capturing beautiful fine art photographs of horses, the connection people share with their animals as well as beautiful and special moments in time for my clients. The best thing about being an animal photographer is that I get to be an artist and also connect with your horse or dog too. Few things are more rewarding than creating photography for my clients and giving them something to cherish.

If you’re looking for an equine or dog photographer who has the ability to connect with your animals, can work with even the most nervous animals and will create timeless artwork for your home which is truly unique. That’s what I do!

Whether your horse or dog is totally nuts and runs around at 100mph or is really chilled and loves getting all the attention; I can work with any horse or dog and capture the true spirit of them to cherish them forever.

As an equine and dog photographer, I love photographing the relationship between animals and owners and creating exquisite fine art images. I also love undertaking personal photography projects for books and exhibitions.

An equine or dog photography session can take place in an environment familiar to your animal, at my studio (dogs) or at a special location like the beach and lasts 2 hours. Whatever you need, get in touch and let’s chat about horses and dogs.


I choose carefully

My love of photography has taken me on a lifelong journey, with many years of hard work perfecting my craft. This is why I take time to make sure my photography is presented in the best possible way. All my photographs are printed on the finest quality fine art printing paper, whilst your frames and albums are bespoke handmade right here in the UK, ensuring that your precious artwork lasts a lifetime. 


I like to sit & think

Each and every horse and owner I photograph is unique, I take time before each photography session to find out about your special relationship with your horse, ensuring that the session is a lovely experience for you both. 


I love to have adventures

I love nothing more than packing my bags and jumping in my VW campervan. To drive to my next photographic assigment or simply to get away from the hussle and bussle for a weekend.

Throughout the year, I’m often found wandering over moors and hillsides stalking semi-wild horses with a camera in my hand or rolling around in the mud at varying locations photographing horses! If you should meet me, I’m a little unkempt with hay in my hair, mud on my shoes and more often than not a plentiful supply of lens wipes, crackly plastic bags and shakers falling out of my camera bag, but loving life as a horse photographer! 

I currently live in Lancashire with Seán, our daughter Mae and Ruby and Caira, our two crazy dogs.

My work includes photographing horses and pets for private commissions and I also offer personal brand photography for professional riders and equestrian business owners in and around Lancashire, Cheshire, Yorkshire, North Wales and the Midlands. Upon request I am also available for shoots across the United Kingdom and Internationally too. An interesting element of my work involves travelling worldwide to photograph and produce equestrian fine art collections for commercial clients such as art collectors, privately owned businesses, large corporations, hotels and interior designers.
