" Wild horses are the living symbols of America's spirit: they embody freedom, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity."
As a wild horse photographer my fine art photographs endeavor to showcase the grace, power, and majesty of these animals, and has gained widespread recognition for their artistry and emotional impact.
My passion for horses began at a young age. I loved the work horses on my grandfather's farm. As a child I drew pictures of horses and dreamed of having my own. That dream came true as an early teen when I got my first horse, Scot-Free. With his help I went on to become an accomplished rider and trainer. Some of my first attempts with a camera were taking photos of my horse and my equestrian friends. As an adult I have been fortunate to combine my love of horses and photography by taking photos at equine events, as well as equine portraits.
My exposure to wild horses began on the coast of North Carolina, where my family vacationed. Descendants of Spanish Mustangs have roamed the barrier islands there for over 500 years. The majesty, strength, and adaptability of these animals left a lasting impression. When I traveled out west and was introduced to the wild herds there, the love and fascination for these majestic creatures increasingly deepened.
Through my work, I hope to raise awareness about the plight of wild horses in America and promote their conservation. I believe that these animals are an integral part of our natural heritage. They belong here and should be protected for future generations to enjoy.
