HKM Sports Equipment:

I had theSan Francisco Gilet & San Francisco T-Shirt to do a tired & tested feature. Whilst testing them out and wearing them in the field and in normal day-to-day life I was honestly surprised of the quality of HKM's products, I wanted to test out their winter wear right away and HKM's San Francisco Gilet is now the only one I will wear. Once HKM Sports Equipment heard about my views on their products I was honoured to hear they wanted to offer me a position as Brand Ambassador - which I accepted.

UVEX's riding devision is one of the leading equestrian safety clothing companies to date, leading the field in design in both their riding helmets, gloves and their sunglasses. It is no surprise that UVEX is the hat choice of many Olympic medalist, Including all of Team Germany in every equestrian discipline. 

I was given a pair of UVEX Sunglasses (Model No: lgl 23, mirror green lenses; S3 ) to try out. At the time only I and Ben Hobday had a pair of this particular style in the UK. I found their UV lenses to be an utter dream when I was taking images in the harsh sunlight at Badminton Horse Trials and they are now my go to pair whenever the sun is out.

Timothy Foxx

Timothy Foxx was founded in 2009 by clothing designer Rosalie Eustace, who at 25 decided to apply her vision and talent to a new business in beautiful, hand made tweed garments. They specialise in being designers and makers of Exceptionally Eccentric Tweed Clothing. 

It was near Badminton Horse Trials earlier this year (2016) when I found myself wanting something different to go with my jackets and 2 piece brown check suit when Timothy Foxx offered me to try out two tweed bowties from their collection - naturally I said yes not knowing how well they fitting into the atmosphere, that is Badminton Horse Trials but also the reactions of the media centre - people are still talking about me wearing them and how well they looked - I am actually wearing one of the two I had for Badminton Horse Trials in my profile image above.

HandiWorld is a young dynamic company focused on bringing innovative ideas to both the global auto accessories and leisure markets. Our mantra is ‘more fun, less hassle...’. Our objective is to help you enjoy and maximise your precious leisure time with the minimum of fuss. 

I was approached by HandiWorld to review their HandiMoova & HandiDuffel products and see how well I could apply them to my job as an international equestrian photographer. Naturally in my job I have a lot of camera equipment that I am always carrying around with me at big venues or in the middle of an open field and I wanted a way to manage and transport all my equipment in one go. 

This is where the HandiMoova & HandiDuffel came into their own!. The HandiMoova is an All Terrain Off-Road Trolley Truck
Driven By Camba Technology allowing myself to transport my gear from A to B in the toughest of terrain and conditions - I can even climb a flight of stairs with ease thanks to its Camba Technology, the wheels move independently of each other and effectively "walk" up the stairs with you - See video Here

I also use the HandiDuffel which is a Waterproof Cargo Bag of 135 Litre Capacity to put my separate bags into meaning I can easily find equipment I am looking for without opening everything up to find it. Also with the HandiDuffel being completely waterproof I have no problem leaving or moving my gear in a down pour.

I have been using Nikon professional equipment for over 10 years and not once have I questioned my choice to use their equipment. Nikon's professional camera and lens lineup simply deliver outstanding image quality that I believe cannot be beaten by any other camera brand in the 35mm market.
