One of the most understated fundamentals of photography is that every photograph reveals not only an fundamental view of the subject, but also a glimpse at the life of the photographer; their visions and dreams. Tamara 's work is a collection of her perceptions, emotions and beliefs.
Tamara grew up with a camera in one hand and a horse in the other; no wonder the two passions merged into a brilliant career. In addition to her love of horses, Tamara enthusiastically pursues lifestyle and portrait photography. "I love how photography changes how we view the world and ourselves."
Tamara has been named one of the top 3 equine photographers in the world. Her photographs have won numerous awards and have been published extensively in numerous US and international publications such as Cowboys & Indians, Ranch & Reata, Western Horseman and Natural Horse, just to name a few.
Ranch & Reata magazine has named her one of the top 5 photographers they have ever featured in their publication. Her work is represented at several prestigious galleries throughout United States including the Hines Gallery in Jackson Wyoming. Tamara was one of the first celebrated women to be included in the Desert Caballeros Museum's esteemed 2012 exhibit, "Cowgirls with a Camera".

In a nutshell, I hope to always create, inspire and never stop learning. I have always had a strong desire to capture the undeniable connection between women and horses, the connection is so intense and powerful.
Horses are an essicential part of my life, in fact I can’t remember a time when the vision of horses didn’t send me looking for light and my camera. Light inspires me and it's the magic of photography, with it at my side I'll always find ways to create enchanting and glamours images.
I believe that photography should speak from the heart. Photography is captivating, emotional and it takes you places you might never see otherwise. Photography should be timeless, beautiful and make you smile. I love what I do and the images I create are testamates to my ever growing love of capturing magic and light in a box.
