It all started with me taking my camera everywhere and taking photos of everything. Since then, it evolved into a passion where I got the honor to capture the memories and stories of humans and horses alike. Having been photographing for over a decade, I have met many people, animals, and places around the world.
Then three years ago an idea began to spark. I have always wanted to do more with my work and so I started brainstorming. After months of research, it became a conservation project. A way to contribute to the beautiful diverse equine world and a way to embrace all that I love about creation.
With a background in Architecture and Industrial Design, photography has always been my way to let out my creativity and my love for exploring and traveling the world.
I am excited to document these horses and bring you a piece of these extraordinary but disappearing breeds.
When I was 12 years old, my parents got me a little film camera. I used to make comedy sketches of all kinds of silly things. At 17 years old I decided I wanted to do something more with my passion. For three years I studied photography but found out that videography was more my thing.
Now I've made filming my fulltime job. My sketches turned into documentaries where I got to hear loving and interesting stories from many people. I've been a horse girl for pretty much most of my life. Combining my love for horses and videography is why I take part in this project. To conserve the endangered horses and share the knowledge of their caretakers and breeders. Let's make the numbers that are still out there, count.
Spending time with my horse and listening to my grandmother talk about life are two of my favourite childhood memories. I found my Omi's stories to be remarkable. The happy, the sad, and everything in between. This fascination for personal stories never left.
Looking back, it seems only natural that I decided to study Psychology. I also fell in love with travel during this time. Simultaneously I saw the damaging effects of anthropogenic practices on nature. I became deeply passionate about sustainability and biodiversity conservation and decided to pursue a masters in Environment and Resource Management. Freshly graduated, I now explore the world, write about sustainable travel and share the stories of the remarkable people I meet along the way. I love what I do as a travel writer because I get to ask people: what do you love?
The equine legacy project hits the sweet spot, combining horses, travel, biodiversity conservation and of course: stories. I can’t wait to share them with you.
