Recently Devon PR photographer Guy Harrop was asked to photograph the launch of tickets on sale at this summer's English National sheepdog trials at Filleigh, Devon UK.
Guy, has worked with sheepdogs and farming extensively over the past 20 years both for newspapers/magazines and with Devon farmer David Kennard photographing the bestselling book 'The Shepherd's Watch'. Guy was often seen lying face down in the wet mud for several of the book shoots to get the right images - rams battling, sheepdogs retrieving stranded lambs on cliffs, sheep farming and capturing the daily life through a sheepdog.
The event this year at Castle Hill, Filleigh will see around 150 of the country’s top sheepdog handlers and their dogs compete at the historic home of the Earl and Countess of Arran on the 19th-21st July. This will be the second time the trial has been held at the estate, the previous event was held in 2009.
Pictured is Marie Fraser, marketing manager of North Devon Hospice and farmer David Kennard, from Woolacombe, representing the International Sheep Dog Society .

Westcountry food photographer Guy Harrop has scooped a first prize in an International food photography competition. Guy was the winner in the ‘Food and its Place’ category in the ‘Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2013’ competition for his image called ‘Scrumpy Time’ taken at a North Devon cider orchard during harvest. The International competition, in its second year attracted over 5500 images from around the world.
Guy received his award from chairman of the judges, journalist and food critic, Jay Rayner at a packed champagne reception in the London.
Said Guy,” Last year I had two entries in this category and came second, so to actually win first prize in a category this year is fantastic. My food photography is really one of my passions and during this last year I have been very busy shooting new work for restaurants, luxury hotels, food producers and food publishers.
I think where I live is also very beneficial to my food photographs, as Devon and Cornwall have such a really diverse range of food producers from chocolates and cheese to meat and fish. I grew up in a hotel and was always around cooking as a child, so food and photography really does tick all the boxes.”
Guy’s work is regularly published both Nationally and Internationally in magazines, newspapers and books.
