''I recently did a photoshoot with Mattie to create some professional material for my website. I took seven dogs and a kitten on our shoot and I was very impressed with Mattie’s professionalism. Not only did Mattie get some truly stunning shots, capturing my animals’ personalities, she also treated them with complete respect, allowing them to perform naturally and within their comfort zones.
My animals are all used for film and tv work, and I have worked with many photographers over the years. I would put Mattie right up there with some of the best to work with and I would highly recommend her services to anyone hoping to capture more than just a pretty picture.'' Laura at Pets on set.
“I’ve worked with Mattie on a couple of different projects - one for my business and one for my family’s dogs. I had a bit of an abstract & vague idea of what we were trying to get for my website and work photos, and Mattie came up with some great suggestions for good shots & got some brilliant results!
Nothing is too much trouble for Mattie and she had the patience of a saint with our dogs who had a great time running around for Mattie to capture completely natural action shots! The end result of the pictures were fantastic, we couldn’t decide on our favourites so had them all! Thank you Mattie!” Hannah Gadsten rider focus physio.
''Mattie brings our ideas to life! Each project is different and we value Mattie's input when it comes to getting the right images. Her understanding of equestrian, canine & country life gives her a natural ability to capture that perfect shot. We would be lost without her. Highly recommended! '' Omega equine.
''I asked Mattie if she could work with my 12 week old puppy and she was confident she could. I was so worried that it would be a total disaster trying to get a wriggly ball of energy to hold still for a photoshoot but I couldn't have been more wrong! Not only was Mattie super patient, but she was so skillful in knowing how to place him and keep him entertained, and so quick with her camera it didn't matter if he only stood in place for a nanosecond. Now I have the most stunning collection of pictures to remember my beautiful boy in his tiniest days. Thank you, Mattie!'' Dr Melvin.
'' Just got Mattie to do the most amazing photos of my beautiful horses and dogs just a day before the lockdown. How lucky was I. They are such professional life like photos. Mattie is fantastic to catch exactly the pose you wish for.'' Tina Kemp.
''I wanted to get some professional photos taken of my beautiful German shepherd and handsome horse and chose Mattie at Capture the Countryside after coming highly recommended and I couldn’t be happier!
Not only is Mattie super friendly and extremely patient in getting the right shot but the finished photographs were just amazing. So good that we want to invite Mattie back to capture the personalities of the rest of the horses on the yard as soon as we can.'' Catriona speed .
''We had a fantastic photo shoot with Capture the Countryside. Mattie had original ideas and amazing patience and rapport with our dogs.
She captured their spirit in action. We are thrilled with the photos and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.'' Jo Smith.
