Bernard Simpson began taking video and images in 1996 and started at equestrian shows, mainly dressage, selling video footage and still images to the riders. In 2003, he started to cover other events as official event photographers, made much easier with the introduction of digital cameras. Among several prestigious events, he was the official photographers for the Badminton Horse Trials for many years as well as the official videographers for the All England Showjumping at Hickstead. He also made several videos for The Queen of Her horses in training in the early years, before the internet became more widely available and faster and now trainers can post their own videos of Her Majesty’s horses directly to Her for themselves.
