...but I'm done. At least for now. After September 30th, I will no longer be offering myself as a professional photographer. What This Means (And Doesn't Mean) I still have most of your images, for now. If you want to order anything from 2012 to the present, you can still do that here. If you want to order anything from before 2012, you'll have to contact me. It takes a while to get the galleries up, and my time is worth something. I will not post galleries just f ......

Here we play the role of tourists and you get to see some of the historical places we saw, including the citadel itself, which is what provides the horses and their humans with a livelihood.

Showing Up With An Idea
April 12, 2016 03:21 PM Blog
I've been discouraged with riding for a few weeks following one really spectacular ride, after which I've had less-than-ideal rides. The last two days, I haven't really wanted to try to push my way through another ride. However, I also know that if I don't change things, things won't change. So, I decided to just show up, even if I ended up half-assing the ride.I've been looking at Working Equitation for a few weeks, and have fallen in love with the canter necessary for this discipline. I k ......
A Warmblood, a Thoroughbred and a Baroque Horse Walk Into a Bar...

Well, okay, the punchline's not really funny. I'm looking for three models, one of each basic type of sport horse, for a series of videos abut photographing horses. There are several parts to the videos, and I expect each session will take 3-4 hours. The plan is to create a how-to video clinic that expands on my Creating Representational Images workshop, and will show you the basic of how to create images of horses for sale or stallions at stud. In the clinic, I will c ......

L'Union Fait La Force
April 3, 2016 02:52 PM Blog
"L'union fait la force" has been a subtle light under which I have viewed much of my life since Haiti, but especially riding. Unity builds strength. It really, really does. On many levels. Too bad this work doesn't look very showy - it sure is powerful.This was something I posted on Facebook a few days ago, but I felt the need to elaborate.
Effective Images for Business
February 1, 2016 07:34 PM Blog
For better or worse, image consumption has skyrocketed with the advent of digital photography and camera phones. People's attention spans are shorter, and their tolerance for quantity over quality has gone up. It's harder than ever to catch someone's attention long enough to tell them anything, not to mention capture their interest in your story. Time is unfortunately short. Too short for mediocre images. Are the images you use to portray yourself and your business accur ......
Getting There!

Well, it looks like I'm well on my way to Haiti! Yesterday I got my various immunizations and prescriptions (bring it on, Malaria!), and a sucker from the travel nurse's assistant for being a good girl. :) I also applied for an expedited passport (holy cows, those things are expensive!). The fund-raising is going well, with just over $1000 raised by 19 people in 10 days. This is amazing! I've said before that I have been struggling with this, but I had a lovely conversation w ......
Help for Haitian Horses and People
January 3, 2016 08:50 PM Blog
My vet, Dr. Judy Batker of Country View Veterinary Service, makes a semi-annual trip to Haiti to work with the horses who provide transport to tourists up and down the Bonnet a L'Eveque mountain in Milot, near Cap Haitian in the Northern territory. Through her work with Equitarian Initiative, and with the help of Christian Veterinary Mission, Dr. Batker has helped educate a number of people in Haiti. Dr. Batker had spoken a few times about her trips to Haiti, but it was during a p ......
