Firstly, thank you for stopping by... I'll start by saying Hello
What can I say about who I am and How I Work?
Firstly, I'm Tracey and I am a full time photographer and the owner of TMS Photography based in Swadlincote, Derbyshire. I specialise in three areas of photography being horses, dogs and weddings. Horse and dog photoshoots are natural portraits with just the horse, dog or with the owner. Dog photoshoots tend to have an element of fast action shots included if required. All dogs love playing and chasing after things and this is what I photograph lots of. Horse portraits I love to capture the phenomenal bond of horse and owner - friends for life!
My ethos particularly for my wedding work is that your big day is to be enjoyed with your family and friends and if you love the more documentary, candid relaxed style, love my work then maybe I'm just what you are looking for. Aside from the documentary stuff, I also offer, if you wanting something extra special, is the opportunity to get away from it all, for approximately 30 minutes on your own to have some time by yourselves, laughing and chatting which will probably be the only time you will have on your own, to simply take some bride and groom portraits. Nothing posed, just simple natural and relaxed moments of the two of you together.
I love weddings that are different, or maybe just a tad quirky wherever they may be in the UK but most of all, I love happy couples with a zest of life and fun. I'm not a portrait photographer, I love all the natural stuff showcasing your wedding as it happens not standing around in awkward poses. Yes there will be a few family portraits of course (if you want them) and that's not a problem but we can have a little giggle doing them! So if my style is what you are looking for, then get in touch for a chat - as I'd love to hear all about your plans. I have been told I'm a lovely professional who is more than just a photographer, which is just what I love to hear. I do limit the number of weddings I take on per year as I want every client to feel special and get the best out of me.
A little bit about me.... I don't have a degree in photography, I am self taught and have been second shooting now for almost three years. My interest in photography came about after playing around with my husband's Canon 450D at a Horse Trials Event we were at. It was my love of horses that got me into Equine Photography and I've simply evolved from there to get to where I am today and I love it.
What I Love & Some things I Don't
I'm a huge lover of horses and am lucky enough to have an Irish Draught Sports Horse called Ollie. I really do have more photos of him on my phone than anything else so when I'm not working, I'm riding. I love history and my favourite era is The Tudors and you will find many books on my bookshelf relating to it. I have fits of giggles now and again and I am the main chef in our family household. I love cooking a proper roast and Christmas dinner no-one else in the household can do it. Love walking especially in the open countryside and the Peak District is one of my favourite places to explore at the moment. I hate ironing.. ironing as I need it then it doesn't get creased in my wardrobe! I do have a fear of snakes but other reptiles I'm fine with. I have two dogs and would love more but not allowed... That's it really!
