Hamish Mitchell is THE BEST. He has photographed all our family events and produced outstanding photos at our daughter’s wedding, Arabella, ten years ago. He has charisma, fits in with the guests and goes about his job quietly. The photos of Arabella’s wedding are all I could have wished for. As our only daughter, it was hugely important that they were outstanding. We were thrilled with the result, even MOB did not look too bad!! I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. He will end up as a friend!

Hamish has been working with Horse & Hound as a freelance equestrian photographer for many years now and has plenty of experience in the role. His eye for a good image and ability to fulfil a brief justifies my confidence in him to deliver what we are need for our magazine and website. He has undertaken many commissions with us from small county shows to international competition, as well as features on equestrian personalities, such as the cover feature on William Fox-Pitt’s comeback from injury, and days out hunting. I would thoroughly recommend his work.

Great to work with Hamish Mitchell. He was on board at short notice, prepared to travel, on top of the detail. He’s good with people…and animals! The pictures were fantastic, beautifully lit and tremendous energy. A great find for Weekend magazine.

I often worked with Hamish while he was both a freelance and a retained photographer for Horse & Hound / Eventing magazine on IPC’s equestrian group. He was unendingly polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Today his work is stunning, as illustrated by his website. That is because he always enjoys an empathy with this subjects, be they horses, dogs or people, plus he has a great knack of allowing the stunning English countryside to star in his pictures. He brings out the best in all, from humans and animals to the landscape around him.

We regularly use Hamish’s photography services with some stunning results. From Lifestyle imagery to catalogue work and front cover shots Hamish can be relied upon to deliver exceptional quality and value. Organising photoshoots outside that involve the cooperation of animals and weather can be fraught affairs. However, with Hamish behind the lens everyone stays cheerful and he always gets the shot. The pictures were fantastic, beautifully lit and tremendous energy. Hamish Mitchell’s photography – my first choice every time!

I recently worked with Hamish on a racing feature for S magazine, Sunday Express. It was a complicated shoot, as I needed several variations of action shots, portraits and reportage images, all turned around quickly for the publication date. Hamish’s understanding and knowledge around the equine subjects was second to none. His friendly and professional attitude made him a dream to work with, but most importantly of all, his photographs were stunning and beyond what I imagined. I’m looking forward to working with him again.
