I have been a professional photographer for fifteen years & during those years I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge, alongside a great passion for animals and photography.
I really wanted to give budding equine photographers a chance to roll up their sleeves and have fun with photography, be inspired whilst developing their portfolio, not to be afraid to ask questions and get honest, professional advice.
My portfolio workshops will give you the opportunity to see how I work and how I create my natural and emotive images.
My portfolio days suit a wide range of abilities. Whether you are a student studying photography and wish to develop your skills in equine photography or you’re a professional photographer who wishes to learn more about equine photography. All you need is a DSLR and a love of horses!
I was recently awarded North West Pet Photographer of the Year for the second year running and has been featured in popular magazines such as Your Horse, Equestrian Life, Lancashire Life, Horse and Rider and Style Reins. You can be assured that you will be learning from a professional animal photographer. I am excited to pass on my knowledge and experience to help you grow to the best of your ability.
I had such a great experience with Esther, before my workshop she spent lots of time getting to know me and she tailored the day to focus on the aspects of photography that I wanted to explore. She has been an amazing coach and has given me lots of invaluable advice. I had such an amazing and exciting day where I got to experience an equine shoot, get to grips with the camera and studio and also learn the encaustic technique. Esther’s knowledge and work are aspirational, and she made me feel so welcome. I came away having had a lovely day feeling very inspired and motivated to carry on exploring my own photography. I will be keeping in contact and hope to work with her again in the future.
Thank you so much for all of your support and for helping to increase my confidence with photography. I couldn’t recommend Esther enough. She is an amazing photographer and such a lovely lady.Maddie Roberts

Esther enjoys working with young people to help, encourage and inspire them through their photography journey. Over the years Esther has run photography groups and continues to mentor young people through their photography courses.
She has recently set up a group called ‘Inspire’. Initially, this is a private facebook group where young people can join a like-minded community to learn, ask questions and be inspired to develop their passion for photography.
Esther has some big plans for this group so if you are a young person who loves photography then make sure you sign up to the Inspire Photography Club.
Beautiful photography celebrating you, your horse and the connection you share.
