Anyone can fill a frame - my goal is to capture the sheer beauty, power, character, and personality of the horses I photograph - an artist's rendering of each unique animal. The driving, overwhelming desire to capture and re-create the soul and spirit of the horse - that's what I live for! A lifelong horse lover and owner, I love what I do, and I feel extremely blessed to have been able to photograph some of the most beautiful and some of the most renowned horses in the world.
