Capturing life, creating art
Beautiful photos of your animals for the walls of your Hampshire home
Having worked as a conservationist, a cattle manager, and a stable yard manager, I have never met an animal I didn't immediately fall in love with (except for mosquitoes!). When I get to meet your animal family, rest assured I will become one of their biggest fans!
If your fur family member is shy or nervous, I will wait as long as is needed for them to feel comfortable with me. If they are high energy, mischievous or just really playful I'll go with their flow and still get brilliant shots!
I become thoroughly invested in my client's stories and I'm passionate about taking photos that capture real connection and show personality. I don't go for perfect poses, I strive for candid images that really highlight your bond and relationship.
You and your horse have a wonderful, unique story. I come to your yard, or location of your choice to capture your amazing bond.
Life without love is life without meaning. I come to your home, or a location of your choice to capture your incredible relationship.
Photo shoots are £100 inclusive of traveling costs within Hampshire and the closest neighbouring counties.
I am fanatical about offering only high quality, luxury wall art pieces which start at £378 for my smallest product.
I don't tie my clients into specific products with packages, instead I offer an à la carte service ensuring you get the wall art you truly love.
When you get in touch we'll arrange a suitable time for us to meet (either in person or via online video chat) so we can get to know each other and plan your perfect session. I will show you sample art pieces to find out what resonates with you and suits your personality.
Sessions usually last 1-2 hours, but may be longer if there are multiple animal family members or if they need time to become comfortable. It's a fun, relaxed, no-rush, no-pressure shoot at your home, your yard or any other public location of your choice. Outfit changes are welcome if you choose.
Image overload is real! Sorting through hundreds of images can be frustrating and exhausting. I present 20-25 of your very best photos to you in person, and help you choose your absolute favourites. If I have a photo of the room where your wall art will feature, I can create a mockup to show how your favourite images will look in your home before you purchase.
Once your chosen images have been printed and finished to perfection, I will deliver them to you in person.
I'm Tracey Beer, born and raised in South Africa and now living in the UK with my wonderful husband and our rambunctious, mischievous son who is affectionately referred to as the 'Half Pint'.
I've always been animal-mad. As a child, I drove my aunt scatty 'rescuing' lizards, keeping beetles in a box under my bed and leaving bowls of water all over the garden for the birds and frogs! Straight after finishing school, I joined my parents on a nature reserve in the north of South Africa and began working as a conservationist, specifically wildlife rehabilitation, and I got to work hands on with some of the most amazing animals there. I've also worked as a cattle manager and a stable yard manager.
I started taking photos with a little point and shoot digital camera that was on a sort of permanent loan way back in 2002. I fell so much in love with photography that my folks bought me my very own little camera in 2007. I had found what would become my lifelong passion!
These days I am an Equine and Pet Photographer, combining my two great loves... animals and photography. My business name is ClipperFire Art, named for my two gorgeous horses Bonfire and China Clipper. Bonfire was my heart horse, my Pegasus and possibly the greatest animal love of my life! Clipper was my Mom's horse that I took over, he was the cheeky jester that tried my patience, tested my limits and taught me a lot about patience, good humour and about life. I don't have my boys anymore, but they live on in everything that I do.
I count myself extremely fortunate to be able to live my best life that satisfies my two greatest passions; meeting (and falling completely in love with) all your amazing animal family members, and being able to showcase them in beautiful wall art that will last a lifetime!
Our homes are a reflection of the things that mean the most to us. If you're like me and your animals are your family, then wanting to fill your home with gorgeous wall art of your animal family is almost as natural as breathing. But there are some amazing benefits to having wall art besides just creating a beautiful space!
