Sue Barratt – Equine and Lifestyle Photographer
My journey into horse photography began with the loss of my own horse Jasper Conran. We enjoyed an incredible bond and shared many happy times. But as is so often the way, I never stopped to take photos as a reminder of our friendship.
I really wished I had more quality photographs of my horse and realised it’s the same for many fellow horse lovers. With busy lives we often fail to record the everyday moments that make up our lives. That’s why I started taking photos of horses; to capture the close bond owners have with their horses and to create beautiful artwork, providing happy memories for years to come.
Family and Lifestyle Photography Yorkshire
While working as a horse photographer in Yorkshire, my customers often ask if I photograph families too. So, I now also offer family and lifestyle photoshoots across Yorkshire, capturing the intimate moments between loved ones and celebrating the unique personality of your family.
Different by Design
With a background in advertising, I worked as a creative director for many years, directing photo shoots for international brands in fabulous locations. I learnt a lot, working with some of the best commercial photographers in the business, and now share that expertise with my clients.
When I look through the lens I can see how the shot will look, framed or in the pages of a book. It’s what gives my images their distinctive style, creating beautiful works of art for you to treasure.
Take a look through my equine and lifestyle galleries. If you like my style, I’d love to work with you. We’ll have a chat about what you’d like from your photoshoot and discuss different locations. I work with clients across Yorkshire, from the Dales to the coast, including Harrogate, York, Leeds and all the towns and villages in-between.
Once your session is complete, I’ll edit the images and then invite you to view them on a slideshow at my studio in Barnard Castle. Here you can choose from framed prints, bespoke books or albums. There’s no hard sell and you can always come back and add to your collection at a later date. I can even provide images on a mobile app, giving you total flexibility to enjoy your pictures however you wish.
My equine and lifestyle portrait collections start from just £175. All prices include travel within 50 miles of Barnard Castle.
