What does your Equine Story look like?

Whether you’ve had horses your entire life or you’re only just getting back into horses after a break, you’ve always loved these amazing animals. My horse mad obsession started early & never went away!

What is it about horses that you love? Did you start your riding career at Pony Club or was it at your local dressage club? However your journey started there is literally no other story like it, you and horse are unique and it’s one of the things I love about meeting the fellow horse mad person!

SO WHO THE HECK IS SAM THEN?

I’m utterly nuts about horses which I combined with photography and then bam… dream job! (Well I reckon so anyways!) My experience working & training horses over the last 25 years means I’m able to photograph every horse to their absolute best.

I’ve got a lovely fat WBxTB who is the bees knees in my opinion… plus a pony sidekick named Colby who we rescued! I adore them both. And you wouldn’t be a horse person if you didn’t have a dog (aka fur-kid) in your family, so I often photograph man’s best friend too. I own a Neo-Mastiff and a German Shepherd so I’m well acquainted with the ways of big dogs, and small dogs who think they’re big dogs… you know what I mean, I’m quite sure!

I travel all over South East Queensland in pursuit of creating treasured images and artwork for anyone who treats their horses and dogs just like a member of the family.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.

Our photography session with Sam was great and I loved the results! She had lots of tricks and methods to capture mine and my horse’s personality.

Meet Sam

G’day! It’s bloody awesome to have you here, thank you for stopping by my little home on the interwebs…

I’m not going to state the obvious… you can probably already tell I’m mad about all things photography & horses. So for something a bit different here are 5 random facts about me!

  • I would eat Arnotts chocolate mint slice bickies ALL day, every day if I could. (My go-to snack if you will)

  • I abhor brussell sprouts… they are the devils food…BLEUGH.

  • Even in the middle of Summer I have piping hot showers, so hot your skin goes red. Mental I know, but works for me.

  • I’ve never been able to do a cartwheel...EVER. The one time I did I popped my knee-cap out... Never again... cartwheels are for the mad & coordinated!

  • I can crack a stock whip in both hands, I’m a bit rusty, but it’s like riding a bike, once you’ve learnt how you kind of really don’t forget. Thank god because while learning I ended up with some serious blisters!
