Welcome 2018


As 2017 ends, I can’t help but feel incredibly grateful. Gratitude for our fans first; we celebrated one million fans this past October. Without you all, we would be just another photography studio instead of the largest exclusively wild horse photographers on social media. We are grateful for the wild horse advocates who work tirelessly to keep these magnificent animals living free on the range.



We are especially grateful for the opportunities to see wild horses, and we share that every year at Sand Wash Basin in Colorado. 

We have an informal ‘Meet & Shoot’ where we take people out to see horses and help them compose the best shot whether they have a top of the line camera or a simple smartphone. This is completely free- and last year we had a dozen people who had the privilege of seeing over two hundred wild horses.

The Lowders & Picasso
This year was also very special when my whole family joined Karen and me at Sand Wash Basin. The Lowder clan got to meet Picasso and spend two days shooting photographs.




Next year we have two trips planned out west. In early summer we will visit McCullough Peaks and Pryor Mountain- with a possible side trip to Spring Creek Basin (get ready TJ!). At the end of the summer, we will be in Sand Wash Basin, Great Desert Basin, and Cedar Mountain. Following that, in October, we will be at Assateague Island teaching photography & painting en plein air…

We have no New Year's resolutions for 2018 except to continue to bring wild horses to you regardless of where you call ‘home’. Please keep sharing our photos so people can appreciate the beauty of these splendid horses. We wish the best for all of you in 2018, healthy, happy, and filled with joy.
