The Dartmoor Shepherd

Neither Lewis or Flora come from a farming background so they rent all their land on Dartmoor. They are the only shepherds in the world to farm all three of Dartmoor’s native, long-wool sheep. Lewis and Flora are on a mission to revive Dartmoor's beautiful, ancient sheep breeds and are passionate about farming their flocks in an ethical and sustainable way. Their sheep roam the rugged hills of Dartmoor where they have been bred for centuries to thrive on the poor moorland pasture. Their slow maturing lambs enjoy up to double the lifespan of commercial sheep. They sell their lamb and hogget direct to local restaurants and produce amazing Dartmoor sheepskin rugs and associated products.

Lewis and I were looking for really natural, rustic photographs of us going about our jobs around the farm for our website. We wanted photographs that really captured The Dartmoor Shepherd not just as a business but as a way of life for Lewis and I. Annie offered great direction and totally grasped the kind of atmosphere our business embodies. Working with Annie was amazing, she was able to put us at ease and got us feeling really relaxed in front of the camera. Many people that know Lewis and I well remark on how well Annie managed to capture our personalities in the images. We were thrilled with the photographs and we now use the them on our website, social media as well as other marketing material. If you’re looking for someone who’s fun, reliable and highly skilled in photographing not just your business/products but capturing the heart and soul of what you do then Annie is your person!
