tamara goochIt has been said that Tamara's work is a collection of her perceptions, emotions and beliefs combined with the dreams and passions of her clients. "When I give you goosebumbs and see that big smile come across your face the first time you get a look at your images, I've done by job." Photography should be timeless and the images should give you unforgettable memories and fill you with joy.

"For as long as I can remember I've had a camera in one hand and a horse in the other. I think it was a natural progression that my two biggest passions merged into a wonderful vocation. Yes, it's a love, my biggest, (after my husband of course) and each time I pick up my camera the excitement bubbles up inside me."

Artist Statement

I create, I inspire and I am continually learning, changing and looking for something new. I have always had a strong desire to capture the undeniable connection between women and horses, it 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 magical 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 testaments to my ever growing love of capturing magic, love, laughter, and memories.

"Without compare she is one of the most celebrated and talented photographer's of our time"  ~  Linda Lockerz, Los Angeles CA
