Capturing the Majesty: Mastering the Art of Photographing Horses

Imagine traveling to an exotic location like New Zealand with one of the world's top ten fine art equine photographers, Tony Stromberg to photograph horses. Or, traveling to Central California during April to learn tips about photographing wild horses.

Mastering the art of photographing horses is a transformational experience for many horse enthusiasts. Add traveling to a unique location or witnessing wild horses in a sanctuary make the adventure even more special.

New Zealand is exotic and the landscape is wildly variable from volcanic terrain to glaciers. Traveling to Christchurch, New Zealand during the summer of 1985, we encountered vast, pastoral beauty and saw countless stars blanketed by a pitch-black night sky. Each day traveling through the countryside was magical and the people were very friendly.

For many people an opportunity to travel to New Zealand may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is a treasured memory for me and I do hope to return. Huka Falls is a particularly picturesque location on the South Island with one of the highest flowing waterfalls in the world. New Zealand has a lot to see and absorb with whatever amount of time you spend in this pristine country.

Traveling to New Zealand to photograph horses and visit the area will be a memorable experience for anyone who loves to travel. Learn more today at

Lori describes "Mustang Mood" with these words. "I love creating these dramatic back or side lit images during what we call the 'golden hour' near sunset when the light is so beautiful!"
