Mark Innes, Farrier | Centennial Park Equestrian Centre

I met Mark the farrier briefly at Centennial Park Equestrian Centre the other week and took a few photos of mark shoeing a horse. Mark was generous enough to allow me to come back a week later to shoot him again working. Mark showed me how horseshoes were traditionally made from a single bar of metal and shaped rather than what is common practice now to use pre made shoes. I have really enjoyed the time I have spent at Centennial Park Equestrian Centre over the past few weeks. I've met some really interesting people and had a insight into their work or their hobby but more than anything their  passion for horses. If anyone in interested in portrait photo session with their horse or a lifestyle session please get in touch I would love to talk to you.

I dropped in quickly to survey a location for a shoot this coming weekend and I bumped into Helen who works at the stables who very kindly took the time to show me around. Helen introduced me to Mark who was just winding up shoeing a horse and very graciously allowed me to shoot him at work. For a non horsey person it was a great to watch him practicing his craft.
