Last weekend I put on my wellies and took the family to a field in South Oxfordshire. With family celebrations on we had my parents staying for the weekend so what better place to take Mum and Dad than to a ploughing match – Mum loves heavy horses and Dad loves an old tractor!
This was a new event for me to photograph but being a country boy I have had my fair share of mud in the past. I’m currently building a portfolio of more country based images alongside my portrait and wedding work and have been busy working on several themes over the last year.
Here are some of my favourite images from the day. Photographing at shows is always tricky if you are trying to get a timeless looking image as there is always some plastic fencing in the background or a modern motor vehicle but on Sunday I did manage to get some more vintage looking images.
For those that competed in the show please have a look at my Photobox Gallery by clicking here for more photographs of the event.
After an amazing day the the wonderful Henley Show with so much to see and photograph I needed a good rest yesterday! I am now busy working on the images which I hope to have online within the week. Please keep checking back, In the meantime here are a few pictures to give you a flavour of the day…..
