There’s only one thing that stirs my passion more than photography and that’s my love of animals. Throughout my childhood, I wanted nothing more than to ride and be around horses, something my parents generously – though perhaps reluctantly – indulged.

In 2006, while studying Politics at the University of the West of England in Bristol, I had the opportunity to spend a summer working as a wrangler on a horse ranch in the mountains of Wyoming, USA. Living out my childhood fantasy of being a cowgirl in a setting and culture I thought existed only in Western movies, I was able to combine my passion for horses with photography, which ultimately led me to where I am today. It was during my time at the wonderful Lazy L&B Ranch that I decided to transform my interest in photography into a full-time profession, and, as the horse expression goes, once I had the bit between my teeth there was no stopping me.

Above is a selection of images of both wild and domestic animals, from the vast plains of Namibia’s Etosha National Park to the Wyoming horse ranch that holds many of my fondest memories.
