The Outer Banks of North Carolina

Lisa returns to the Outer Banks of North Carolina every year, photographing the herds and personalities that she has become so familiar with over time. If there was ever an environment that combined all the elements that Lisa is passionate about, it would be in this tiny segment of protected barrier islands where the dynamics of the herds are in as much flux as the barrier islands, constantly changing with the ebb and flow of the sands and sea. This BBC produced video beautifully captures the magnificence of the environment that these wild horses have called home for centuries.

Horse Show Time – The Pan Am Games

This is one of my very early images on the road to developing an eye — it is a tighter crop of an image that included most of the rider, except I didn’t quite get all of her head. I loved the form of the horse more than anything and played around with different crop versions. It is one of the few images that I license and it is always fun to see the end results. The PR firm extracted just the horse, eliminating the background and top rail for a very effective and eye catching ad for front row seating to all the action.

If you are lucky enough to live in Canada, the Pan Am Games are being televised throughout Canada right now.
