Living so close to “The Curragh of Kildare”, you cannot help but love the landscape and the everyday activity of racehorses out for a gallop. From early in the morning, hail, rain or shine you see horses emerging from their stables and to begin their daily run out either on the Racecourse itself or the surrounding Curragh Plains. I have captured some memorable shots over the years of the racehorses and their riders either in full gallop or leisurely stroll with the Iconic Curragh Camp in the background.
Equine photography is one of my favorites as horses have so much character and are so beautiful and majestic. I have had the pleasure of visiting stables on the Curragh to get up close to the horses with my camera and have developed a technique after photographing horses in a stable or a yard, capturing with the available light and developing them into stunning portraits.
