Clare Lindop


The Atkins name has been synonymous with Thoroughbred racing in South Australia since 1936 when Bill Atkins began his photography career.
In 1993 Terry and Hilary Hann purchased the business from Bill's son John and have been catering for the horse racing fraternity ever since.. Atkins Photography covers racing at Adelaide's major racing centre of Morphettville, the hills track of Oakbank along with the provincial tracks of Balaklava, Gawler, Murray Bridge, Strathalbyn and the country tracks of Clare and Mindarie-Halidon. We also provide coverage of the Annual St Pats race meeting at Broken Hill.


My name is Sharon Lee Chapman and my goal is to provide unique images to the horse racing industry, something different and unique to the regular images seen so often in editorial channels.  Images that tell a story, capture the emotion and excitement of horse racing and showcase the beauty of the Thoroughbred.   In 2011, I was fortunate to win the Quill Award for News Photograph of the year with "that" picture of "that horse", Banna Strand when he famously jumped into the crowd at the Warrnambool Carnival.
