Last year Matthew was commissioned to photograph the stallions for the National Stud 2012 brochure. The shoot took place in the breeding shed on a very hot summer’s day, which would have been a daunting task had it not been for Paddy (The Stallion Man). Paddy’s knowledge and expertise in handling the stallions was incredible & our thanks go to Paddy & Rachael for an exciting & safe shoot.

One of the stallions, Bahamian Bounty, pictured above sired a yearling colt recently purchased by Coleen & Wayne Rooney. The colt is in training at Michael Owen’s race yard in Cheshire where Matthew provided the equine art for Michael’s owners lounge.
