Photographer Phil Audibert in Gordonsville, Virginia has been practicing his artistry with the still camera in the hunting field for some time. Recently he’s been experimenting with the video camera. Here’s the Keswick Hunt (VA) in action with views of the hunted fox, Keswick’s pack of American hounds in full cry, and staff and field galloping and jumping to stay with hounds.

Irish-born Tony Gamell is the huntsman, and the background music, appropriately, is an Irish reel called The Star of Munster. Click to see more videos and photo galleries on Phil’s website.

LOVED watching the March Madness in Montford. In the scene where the fox is seemingly just sauntering along and hounds are starting to press (around the area before hounds flew the coop!) I was calling out "Go fox go!" Great footage. The part of the clip in the gorge amidst all the cover, I do wonder and marvel at Phil's ability to spy Reynard as he was hard to spot with the naked eye. Good job Phil, and although I will never be able to hunt again, he made me feel like I was back in the field! I thank him and Foxhunting Life for the pleasure his video has given me.

Great video of an outstanding pack of American hounds. The view of Reynard at the coop with hounds covering the line is simply outstanding. Beautiful hound work.
