My equine art process

I’m not your typical equine photographer, let alone fine art photographer. I love using a camera to collect raw material to make art with later.

What I learned from Carolyn Resnick

Why are we arguing? I’m facing my horse, who’s in my bubble, at liberty in a large arena. I ask him to leave. Go right. Left. Back. I don’t care. Just go. I stand my ground, but so does he. I make it uncomfortable for him to stand there and he has the freedom to …
