As long as she can remember, Hockley Valley photographer Ellen Cameron has been fascinated by the challenge of capturing the majesty, power and grace of horses in drawing and painting. With a degree in fine art, the former potter and sketch artist now travels with a camera as her constant companion, a tool that more readily allows her to record the subtleties of horses’ actions and interactions. “I seek to convey the remarkable spirit of the horse, with all its strength and its seemingly contradictory fragility.” In addition to this page, Ellen’s work is featured on our cover and with the story “High on Horses.” [email protected]

  6. Dear Pam,
    I very much appreciate your response to my work, especially “Bound for Glory”. It was a pleasure working with that particular equine partner as we both did a lot of running that day. She was a co-operative and delightful subject.
    Thank you,
    Ellen

    • Bob,
      Thank you Bob. As far back as I can remember…even before University days I longed to be working with horses. I feel very grateful that now I have the opportunity to combine my Fine Art training with my equestrian life in Hockley Valley.
      Take care,
      Ellen
