The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers

by Carol J. Walker

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Catching a horse at exactly the right moment, in precisely the right environment, is a challenge, but Horse Photography offers the answers. Walker covers technical details such as camera and lens selection, background and lighting, and the book offers more: Walker’s own perspective as a horsewoman. Her explanation of the horse’s gaits, for example, will open every photographer’s eyes to the most beautiful moments of a horse in motion, and yield finer, more powerful results. Readers will also benefit from Walker’s insights into “horse psychology” and how the horse as a prey animal reacts to equipment, location, even separation from the herd. Outstanding example images by Walker offer inspiration while the clear text explains the technical details; together they create a resource any amateur photographer will come to rely on.

About the author

She studied literature and photography as an undergraduate at Smith College, and continued her education in photography after graduating, studying portraiture and nature photography. She has traveled all over the world photographing wildlife for the past 28 years. In 2000, Carol started her business Living Images by Carol Walker, specializing in photographing horses. Carol’s images illuminate the relationship between horses and their people, as well showcase the beauty of horses with her stunning images of horses at liberty. She teaches workshops for amateur photographers on equine photography. Her commercial work includes catalog covers for leaders in the Equine industry.

Carol has done presentations on equine photography and on wild horses at Equine Affaire in CA, OH and MA as well as at the Western States Horse Expo. Eight years ago, Carol began photographing wild horses. As she followed several herds in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana, she became aware of how precarious their situation on public lands has become. Since then, she has dedicated herself to educating people with her photographs and stories about the wild horses. Her book Wild Hoofbeats: America’s Vanishing Wild Horses is available. The award-winning book was released winter of 2008 and is currently in its second printing. Carol just released her second book, Horse Photography: The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers
