Hi i'm Malcolm
An internationally published horse & conservation photographer based in Dartmoor, Devon, England.
I love everything about horses. I’m just as fascinated by wildlife and conservation. Together they’re a lifetime’s affair.
My love of the outdoors is a lifetime affair. Observing and capturing images of horses within extraordinary landscapes is a conservation-minded passion that’s rooted in a deep affection and respect for the environment.
When I’m capturing images of horses, high on the moors or deep in the valleys, I’m at peace, connected with the landscape, in tune with the rhythms of nature.
Dartmoors unique place has inspired my contemporary documentary style of fine art photography. I like to think all this passion shines through my images.
Observing and taking images of horses within these extraordinary landscapes is a conservation-minded passion, rooted in a deep affection and respect for the environment. I work hard to create clear, dramatic images that reflect the beauty of Dartmoor.
I’m proud to be Chairman of the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust, working with a lovely team of people to promote the fantastic work they do to secure the future of the native Dartmoor pony. They do such a fantastic job of inspiring and connecting people with Dartmoor’s wildlife, landscape and heritage. I work with The English National Park Experience Collection too, telling the stories of our landscapes and their people.
I run photography workshops on Dartmoor. It’s such a privilege to help people discover the hidden gems of Dartmoor along with the fundamentals of great photography in breathtaking places.
I’m thrilled my horse and conservation photographs find their way around the world. The more people know about it, the more will love Dartmoor and the better it’ll be protected.
My Core Photography Values
As a conservationist & wildlife lover, I will always respect my environment and my subject over trying to capture an image.
Observation not Orchestraion
The welfare of the subject is more important than the photograph.
Be familiar with the natural history of the subject
Minimize my impact on the landscape by following the “Leave No Trace – Pack It In, Pack it Out
Image manipulation must never alter essential content in such a way that it either misrepresents actual events, or deceives the intended audience
