Earle is the ‘behind the scenes’ and ‘fill in’ man. You will normally see him either at the mobile office or walking around the grounds taking munchies/drinks to the photographers and collecting memory cards for quick download. However, don’t be surprised if you see him behind a camera occasionally – he’s a very diverse team member and does like to catch a bit of the action sometimes! On days that don’t involve photo shoots, he’s frequently hard at work on the mobile office, endeavouring to better our computer systems. An occasional mountain bike ride doesn’t go amiss in his diary either!

Just recently starting with Oz Shotz, Jessie Smith can usually be seen in the show jumping ring competing up to 1.30m with her team of horses.

A newer member of the Oz Shotz team is Madi. She is commonly found either studying for exams or riding her mare Ebbie (La Bella Ebbie) in the dressage arena. She is keen to finish Year 12 and start another chapter of her life with a combination of her love for horses and interest in photography.
