Past commissions have included a piece on the Northumberland Crow Falcons for ‘Country Life’ besides regular contributions to weekly magazine Horse and Hound.
She has also photographed BBC Countryfile's Adam Henson for product photography of a joint venture between Adam Henson and R-Oil.
More recently, over 15 of her photographs were featured in a special Hunting Supplement of the magazine 'The Tatler'.
Lately, her commissions have taken her into the racing world, including covering the Goffs/DBS Bloodstock Sales, given free reign to cover the atmosphere of the day with candid portraits, close detail shots and telling the story of the event.
"Her family run a fine arts business so Sarah has always been exposed to artistic images. It wasn’t long before she picked up a camera when foot following with her grandfather, their local packs being the Heythrop, North Cotswold and Warwickshire. She went on to study photography, first a City and Guilds course, followed by a Foundation Fine Art course, where she received a Distinction for her project based on ‘the working life of The North Cotswold Hunt Kennels’, a subject which caused some interest within the art school.
She has never looked back and her work speaks for itself. Hunting and photography are her passions in life; She has a fresh eye, attention to detail and bags of energy" - Ann Cairns, former Old Surrey MFH
