I began my photography career taking photos of barrel racing for the EZ Run PBRA. Since that time I have been named the association photographer for EZ Run, and have truly honed my abilities in photographing this amazing event. Not only have I taken some amazing pictures and built a strong customer base, I’ve made incredible friendships. To top it off, my time with EZ Run has also been an incredible networking opportunity.
I began shooting events at Triple Creek, the farm I took lessons at until a couple years ago. My good friend, and instructor, Elizabeth encouraged me to just come and practice and see what happened. I even took pictures of a couple of her students prior to my first barrel race. The parent of one of those students contacted me recently and asked if I would be interested in photographing the Sunchaser Equestrian winter series. I said I would.
I really enjoyed watching and photographing the kids’ classes. There were several incredibly talented young people, including this little boy. You very rarely see boys competing in a hunter show, and I was lucky enough to meet his family. They recognize that if he continues to ride, he will have a unique skill that will set him apart from others. He was a dynamite rider!
I had a wonderful time photographing this event. Hunter/jumper is something I’m incredibly passionate about on a personal level, because it is the discipline of riding I have extensive experience in. It was wonderful to be part of a show like this that showcased some very amazing young and adult athletes!
A great big thank you to Sunchaser Equestrian for inviting me. I can’t wait until the next show in the series.
