As any parent who tries to capture a childhood moment and fails may tell you, photographing a small child in motion is about as likely as enjoying a seamless day of productivity at work! Shooting photos of horses present similar challenges. Couple the animal's need for flight with the instinct to wander, any photographer capturing a seminal moment, place, or slice of a horse's personality claims both success and relief!
Though I am new to the world of equine photography, I am learning to connect the story told on the page with my writing with images I take. The story is as central to a photo as it is to a piece of prose. The challenge is to connect the dots!
Enjoy the mania of the Santa Fe Summer Series hunter jumper extravaganza, the compassion of Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue and the solitude and quiet of the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. More to come as time goes by!
