master saddler wendy hoggard

In April I captured Wendy at work at the White Rose Saddlery in Malton. The photographs were commissioned by Archant Dialogue​ for a feature on this superb craftswoman for The Royal Ascot Magazine. Here are some of my favourite images of Wendy at work, using traditional saddle making tools and techniques which have remained the same for centuries.

The magazine is available now at the prestigious Royal Ascot Racecourse​ meeting, and look out for the superb full feature here in the next few days.
