My love of horses was instilled in me by my Dad teaching my brother and I the nuances of racing at Churchill Downs and possibly by the fact that my Mom actually attended Riva Ridge’s 1972 Kentucky Derby win just 4 weeks from giving birth to me. Nature and nurture I guess, I still have her Derby glass from that day although I hope my Dad drank the Mint Julep from it. My forays into equine photography began in 2003 and have evolved into being on the inside of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, the Belmont Stakes and the Breeder’s Cup along with shooting at some of the world’s most legendary Thoroughbred farms. I had the privilege of learning from the late, great Tony Leonard and have spent priceless moments witnessing and capturing the great champions and personalities of the Thoroughbred industry.
These images represent a small sample of my equine photography to provide a window into my photographic perspective. Please contact or email me with photo requests or a more in-depth look at my portfolio.
