Horseshow photographer


My 7 year-old son wanted to show horses. There was no photographer at the shows, so I went to a "horseshow photography" school--a week--and learned how to do it. I've been doing it now for over 15 years.


If you love horses, this is the perfect career! I work weekends to take the pictures, then do the ordertaking and paperwork during the week. It could be a part-time job, but I make it full-time and travel all over the country photographing horse shows, rodeos, and clinics. I also do a lot of stallion photography and fine art photograhy. That is, calendar shoots. It only takes a good camera, a special flash and long-life battery and a good work ethic to get established and become successful.
