our beaker - a very special little fella ;) by 


this is our Beaker, named so because he is a ‘parrot mouth’ which means he was born with his bottom jaw too small for the top of his mouth. Thanks to some amazing equine dental work by Alison MacIntosh and some ‘grazing’ therapy, Beaker can now almost fully get his needs on his own, we only hand feed him a little hay or pellets to keep his coat up.
He was a rescue – came from a situation where, he was literally stuck on a fence post – impaled if you will at the age of 4 months – vet did some amazing work, stll has the scare – and then just as he got over that another male got into his yard and took a chunk out of his rear end – dominance thing, and once more he survived with daily care – now Beaker keeps the lawn down and is only kept with mares as males tend to beat him up – lucky beaky-boo surrounded by females ;)

In the 1990’s photography for me was about SLR’s & dark rooms, it was about printing your shots at 3-6am to ‘beat the light’ in you homemade darkroom to get your shots to press. I worked in music, hair and a little news, but love portraiture. Now I use a digital slr, but try to replicate shot control like in the old film days. I now longer make my living out of photography, but prefer to better my life by embracing a passion ;)
