MY STORY AS AN EQUESTRIAN PHOTOGRAPHER
hi! my name is Marie McKinnon and I am a horse obsessed photographer based out of Strathmore, Alberta. I work with equestrians from around Southern & Central Alberta, and parts of BC.
I have been involved with many different horses throughout my life and have found a deep love of the Desertbred Arabian. My horses are huge inspirations for my work. In fact, I first gained an interest in photography as a means to promote and share them with the online horse community!
Once I started I couldn't stop!
I started messing around with a Nikon
Entry-level DSLR in 2009 after our first son was born. After the birth of my second son, I moved up to a Nikon D90 when I made the decision to start shooting manual and gain a deeper understanding of how my camera works.
I now shoot with a professional Full-Frame Nikon which allows me to give you excellent quality images worthy of hanging on your living room walls!
In early 2016 I started my journey towards becoming an Equinology Equine Body Worker (EEBW) and have since completed first and second level courses.
I am also a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master who works on both horses and their owners. I LOVE to help foster a healthy and positive lifestyle - mentally, physically and spiritually.
