My name is Hugo Ferreira

let's get to know each other

Hello. My name is Hugo Ferreira, a Portuguese born next to the sea, from a city called Setúbal.

My progress into equine photography started with my wife, a dressage rider for many years. My photographic skills combines learnings from everyone I have/had the pleasure to work with but also by my constant mindset in being better everyday, to provide great quality images. "The road for quality never ends", some say.
You can see my photos, at the Client Area.

Words about HKF

By Pauline Van Weymers

"That’s the first time I am ordering from you as I have not been competing (or riding much full stop) over the last 2 years, but I see why everybody is always excited to look at your photos after they have been at Netherton! Keep up the good work 😊 I am looking forward to order more in the future, (...)! 😉"

Wish you were at every event 🙌🏾🙌🏾"

By Colleen Macrae

"Hi Hugo

I hope you’re well. I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say the photos you took are absolutely lovely. Thank you so so much!

Best wishes.

"Totally amazing service. This was my first visit to Netherton Equestrian Centre and also our first ever qualifying show at this level. HKF photography captured several beautiful pictures of our big day and not only made us look “professional” but also captured a lovely portrait photo of me and my horse standing in the lineup.

There is obviously an understanding of the love and partnerships between horse and rider and you did not fail to capture this in all of your pictures of all competitors standing in the lineup.

Also, the albums were uploaded so quickly and before I’d even made it home from the event, I’d ordered pictures of the day and within 24 hours they had arrived in my inbox.

Totally impressed and will no doubt be ordering again at our next event that HKF photography will be at!

Thanks again 🥰."

"Hi I’ve recently bought pictures from you for The search for a star at Netherton equestrian. I’m so happy with not only the pictures but with how friendly you are and how you captured the moment for me and my horse so perfectly.

Very impressed with how quickly the pictures were put up to!"

By Elizabeth Menzies

"HKF Photography absolutely fantastic, so patient and professional, going that extra mile to get the best pictures for you. Cannot recommend them enough and absolutely love our images from our photoshoot, it was so difficult to choose as there were so many great images 😊"

By Laura Neilson

"My review?

This is the ONLY show we bought photos from last year (and this year).

And because it was the only one we attended where you took them!

The quality of the photos, the aspect, the moment captured and the service after was enormously better than any other existing equine show photographer on the circuit to date.

I wish other photographers would take the time to capture special moments for people like us - amateurs who spend all our spare pennies enjoying our ponies & just want a nice photo to remember special moments by. 🥰"

By Lucy Blain

"I sometimes cringe when I see which photographer is covering an event, as some just aren’t “horsey photographers” - they don’t understand what we, as riders, want from a photo. They are usually good photographers, but just never get the right shots. Whenever I see Hugo is shooting an event, I breathe a huge sigh of relief, followed by a moment of acceptance that I am going to spent A LOT of money on photos, as I know there will be far too many perfect shots to only choose one! HKF always manages to capture the perfect moment, not a second too early or a second too late. The images are technically perfect, framed beautifully and always exceptional quality. Not to mention they are uploaded and sent out at the speed of light, perfect for impatient riders such as myself 🤣 There is literally nothing more I would look for in a photographer! You’ve captured some of my happiest moments down at Netherton, I have too many favourites to choose from, but I really love this one - taking Veteran Champion with our orange superstar, Mick 🥰."

By Angela HannaH

""Hugo, they (photos) are all absolutely fantastic! Thank you so so much 🥰 

The quality and the moments you capture behind the camera are astounding. Just beautiful❤️

Best wishes,

""Hi Hugo,

Thank you so much for getting in touch, I was going to message you anyway to say thank you for being so kind after my test - I had 2 hours sleep with a 6-month-old baby and forgot my test/rode horribly! And you were so kind.

The pictures are really fabulous, I don’t always buy dressage pics but with your pics, I couldn’t choose!

Thanks again, hope to see you soon.



"100% top job, super pics of my boy at the dressage plus a video, absolutely delighted, and to top it off order processed and delivered to me within 24hrs! Thanks so much. Happy to recommend, professional and slick service."

By Abbie Murray

"This is my absolute favourite photo from our show at Netherton Equestrian I can’t thank you enough for capturing this moment! Thank you for the fast response and service highly recommended we will sure to be purchasing more in the near future. Top photographer 👏🏻👏🏻"

By Amy Anne-Louise

"I loved the personal approach to the pictures and the natural moments caught on camera.

SFAS was our first visit to Netherton and it was made more special by our win in the class.

The service is very fast and efficient.

I was really touched when you took time to get this amazing photograph out the ring for us which is soo treasured by us 🌟"

By Cara Marie Evans

"Hugo has made a dream come true capturing the pony, dog and I cantering along my favourite beach!

He took a fabulous selection of photos from the shoot and put up with all my requests for what kind of photos I’d like!

He’s also taken amazing action shots at a competition making it difficult to choose which photos to buy! 😅

Great fun, friendly guy with inspiring ideas for the perfect photo!

Thank you so much again Hugo!"

By Jules Julie Eileen Webster

"Hugo isn’t just an amazing photographer, he’s captured loads of great photos of both of my girls, but he is an amazing person too. One afternoon at dressage, my talented but sometimes awkward little mare decided that she couldn’t possibly go anywhere near Hugo in the warm up. This is Hugo, that she’d seen Every Single Time she was at this venue 🤦🏼‍♀️ Absolutely no way, go anywhere near him. I’m thinking oh no, I’ll never get her up that long side between the boards. Hugo took the time to come over and speak to Elf, pat her, and reassure her that he wasn’t that scary after all. Disaster averted. He’s a top guy as far as I’m concerned 🏆"

By Megan Guild

"Amazing service.

By Jackie Henderson

"Great photos that capture those special moments - big and small. Can’t wait for my home photoshoot to go with my competition photos."

By Jennifer Jenning

"I've loved all the photos you have done of Atlantis and I especially this one after our medium test captured such a great moment - 'A picture is worth a thousand words' so true.

And not forgetting what's really great is that you video all the tests as well, they are clear and such a fab way to see your progress.

Your incredibly fast at sending out both photographs, videos and super helpful. I will definitely be getting more in the future. Thank you and well done for 1000 like im sure there will be plenty more in the future."

By Denise Otter

The detail of my dog’s movements and his character were thoughtfully captured and really showed him beautifully. I am just amazing and delighted with the pictures as are the friends who have seen them. A fantastic job. Thank you."

Thank you HKF Photography for another collection of exceptional photographs. Superb service, excellent communication and photos edited and emailed within 24 hours of ordering 😊.  The dressage videos are brilliant too - good learning for Emily to watch the videos along with reading the score sheets so she can see where she lost marks. Thanks again Hugo 📸 ⭐️
