I am a published and award winning photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have been shooting for over 40 years, from film to digital. I won my first SLR camera in a photography contest in 1976. The winning photo was taken with a Kodak Instamatic. It has been a constant journey of growth and personal fulfillment since then.
My love of horses began even before that. I love animals of every kind, but horses have always been magical. I first rode, on my grandfather's farm, when I was big enough to sit on a horse by myself. It wasn't until I was 15, that I got my first horse of my own. I am blessed now, to be able to combine two loves!
I have always loved the creativity of finding the right view, the right angle, the right light, and making an image that tells a story. I know it sounds cliché, but I also love preserving memories of those special moments, whether it is a special view of a place, a wildlife encounter, or a meaningful time or moment in someone's life.
