Neil Egerton served 12 adrenalin fuelled years in the Royal Marine Commandos, before pursuing his other true passion – action sports photography. That was 30 years ago.
Twenty years ago Neil was struck by the combination of the skilled horsemanship and unquestionable grace that can be found on every polo pitch and in every polo match across the globe. It was and remained an inspiration to how he has endeavoured to capture the ‘sport of kings’ – illustrating the magic and mystery in an honest and representative exposure. He has travelled around the world with this wonderful sport. From the green fields of the English countryside to the sun-drenched pitches in Australia and Spain and beyond, to the snowy grounds of Switzerland and China.
‘The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit and freedom.’
