I started my photography business over 30 years ago, the first 20 of those shooting advertising photography for such prestigious clients as Gates Learjet, Cessna, Wells Fargo Bank, Beechcraft, Apple Computer, Boeing, Nike, Williams & Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Banana Republic and the Gap. It was a fast paced, competitive world, and after 2 decades, I found myself burned out and completely lost.

I had developed a love-hate relationship with the camera, but when I started photographing horses in my free time, my interest in photography was rekindled. I realized that to find nourishment in photography, I had to learn that it was not about the medium itself, but what I was using it to capture and share. And when I started spending more time with horses, that’s when my world started to change.

I did not grow up around equines. They came into my life later on, and it reminds me of that old saying, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. Well, horses were indeed my teachers, and continue to be in many profound ways. My work with horses is an homage to the equine spirit, and what that has brought to my life and to others.

After leaving the Bay Area and moving to New Mexico, through a series of synchronicities, I ultimately found a way to devote myself full time to this work. I have since come to learn that capturing the true spirit and essence of the horse in all its power and beauty… and sharing that spirit with the world… is my life’s work.

In both their physical as well as their archetypal form, I believe that horses help to bring us back to a sense of connection that we have lost or forgotten. They teach us about authenticity and honesty, and they teach us that true partnership is based on collaboration, not dominance. They teach us that a being can retain its full spirit and wildness, while also remaining sensitive and compassionate and connected.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my work.
