The advent of high quality digital SLR cameras enticed me back into photography after a hiatus of several years. Always heavily involved with equine sports and activities, I now found that I had a way to try to express my feelings about it in a way that people could enjoy. I've never been overly interested in photos of horses grazing in a field. Instead, I was drawn to the photos of equine and human athletes captured in the midst of competition. There's something magical about seeing a thousand pound animal sail over enormous obstacles effortlessly. And nothing can compare to seeing two racehorses looking each other in the eye as they pour out their hearts and souls on the track.
On a different level, I've turned to trying to capture that spark that you find between people and horses. The result is a portrait of someone in a moment in time that they will never forget, a moment many later say was the best times of their lives.
Besides shooting horses in action, I strive to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. Seeing and capturing the sun rising above the Caribbean in a blaze of color, the smallest tree frog perched beneath the leaf of a sunflower, the candid moments at weddings when the emotions speak louder than a million speeches. Every time I shoot, I learn a little bit more about the magic that makes photography so special to me.
