I've worked as a horse trainer & managed beef farms but through it all my love for horses & art has led me to create images that serve horse lovers & equine businesses.
I find fulfilment creating photos of horses that showcase either a special bond with their person, represent a discipline or equestrian association, or present equine products and brands in a special light.My own horse Molly gives me a constant source of inspiration & understanding that I pour into my equine photography so that others can have meaningful photos to treasure. Horse photoshoots are complicated and so very rewarding. Being a horse photographer as well as a horsewoman means I know what to look for in photos of horses and always get a thrill from creating photographs of horses and their humans where the bond between them is clearly visible.
(If only it were that easy!)
A childhood full of pretending I had a pony.. or was a pony.. being told off for only painting horses in art class... Climbing fences to go say hi to random horses
Where I fell in love with roping, quarter horses, country music & those big Canadian skies.
I didn't know I was creative when I was growing up - so when I found photography it was an instant hit of colour, style & self expression that I had never experienced before.
After I left school I had my dream job training young horses - this is where I found my affinity for horsemanship, western riding & bridleless riding
Molly and I have managed beef farms, ridden trails, competed in reining & ridden liberty - she is the big WHY behind my heart horse photography
After time as a wedding photographer for a while, I found myself only having the desire to be a horse photographer.
It's emotive & heartfelt
Fine art equine photography is seeing the horse with a deeper perspective & aiming to bring that perspective to life through the medium of photography. Horses hold a spark of meaning for people - they are beautiful & noble beings that teach us about ourselves.
Meaning > Aesthetics
Always. But when those two come together through a carefully honed eye & technical skill built over years of practice - that is fine art.
