"When photographing horses I get to immortalise them, and all their magnificence. I also capture the treasured relationship that exists between a horse and their owner."
Hi, I'm Marie and thanks for visiting.
I prefer to call myself a freestyle equine photographer, photographing horses in natural environments, at liberty and with their beloved owners and riders. When I am in their world, there is peace and I feel free.
I have photographed all equestrian disciplines over the years - show jumping, dressage, cross country, western riding championships and pony club rings. Many of my images have been published in magazines and feature on websites around the globe.
I started photographing horses while living on 300 acres with 70 horses roaming in natural herds. I would wander the hills observing their lives, captivated by the power of these magnificent animals. I was forever changed by them as much as the land I walked on.
In addition to horse photography, I am also a wedding and portrait photographer. I am based between Auckland and the Waikato where I live with my rescue dog Rosie and my gorgeous mare Chrissy.
