CHESTER PICS UPLOADED
"She stands out from the rest in horseracing - and so does her work. She's Scottish. She's got a background in art and engineering. She's a redhead. She's a she. And her pictures dare to be different - look at the beauty, the dynamism, the sheer exuberance of the shots in her portfolio on this website. Work good enough to make her runner-up for the racing photographer of the year at the HWPA Derby Awards twice in two years.
"You can see Louise Pollard's earlier calling in her work as a racehorse photographer - she studied art before moving to Malton from her native Glasgow.
"She began her love affair with photography as a student and the romance has blossomed with the experience of working at the numerous racing yards and racecourses around Yorkshire and beyond.
"Louise is a regular throughout the north, at Newmarket and at all the major festivals, commissioned by a range of local and national newspapers.
"She has just been appointed official course photographer at Beverley, her local track and one of her favourites, and she is looking forward to a busy year ahead, whether it be early in the morning on the gallops or at the heart of the action on course.
"She strives to be he best in all fields and her work is not restricted to racehorses as she gets frequent commissions for domestic animal pictures - horses, dogs... even children!"
