Hello! We have a highly select team of photographers, all hand-picked and trained by us. All of the girls are experienced horse women. Paul has learnt about ponies vicariously because of my involvement with the Connemaras. Jason is the only non-horsy person but is a very experienced photographer and wanted to join us to learn the intricacies of photographing horses.
I have a long history, nearly 50 years, of experience with horses. My true love is dressage but I was brought up showing Connemaras in ridden and in-hand at County level. My Stud, Lanburn Connemaras is now owned and run by Paul and myself, since Dad, Bob Blackburn OBE, died in 2014.
We always strive to achieve consistency and high quality in our photos and always looking for that extra special shot, we do our best to respect each discipline, competitors and horses. Here is a little bit about each person, below.
Thank you for taking the time to read about us. Pam
