Need For Steed Australia

Equestrian Photography
Many champions have graced the turf at Royal Randwick Racecourse, and perhaps you own or follow a horse. The journey begins here, behind the scenes in the early hours of the day. From track work, to swimming, to time spent in the stables and more, photographing a racehorse during the course of its racing journey is a story in itself.  Take advantage of getting photos during the various stages of its career.

    Horses have always been a part of my life. Since joining the racing industry first as a pony rider and becoming a photographer along the way, has been a journey rich in action and colourful people. Racing is an incredible family and I feel blessed to be a part of it.
