For as long as I can remember, I have always had a fascination with cameras and photography. As a child I started out with your typical Kodak Instamatic camera, adding a Polaroid One Step to the mix as a teenager. (Oh, the excitement of seeing the image in a short period of time, rather than waiting for the developer to have my pictures done!) I don’t think it ever crossed my mind back then, that I would one day be shooting digital, and that instant ability to view the image would be ten times better than that Polaroid! In the interim, I took a couple of photography classes and shot with a Minolta 35mm camera. By 1998, I made the transition to digital, and by 2001, had my first Nikon. Currently I shoot with a Nikon D300 and Nikkor lenses. My other passion is horses. I started learning about horses when my sister Patti bought her first horse in 1976. He was a Paso Fino stallion. ( “A Paso what?” That was the typical response back then.) Over the years we began breeding and showing Pasos, and at one point, I even trained professionally with my sister. But always, waiting just to the side, was a camera, waiting for me to pick it up and start capturing one of the most beautiful animals I have ever known…The Horse. Their power, beauty and grace still astound me to this day. My small herd tends to be my subject matter, but I love taking photos of any horses I see! I became fascinated in High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Infrared Photography in 2009 and have enjoyed searching out locations worthy of these two processes. I have a wonderful partner in my husband, who drives me wherever I “need” to go to capture images, and is my “Sherpa”. We live on 17 acres in lovely Oskaloosa, KS with our dog, three cats and eight horses.
