Michael Johnston is a retired educator pursuing her dream of producing fine art photographs with emphasis on equines. Her love for photography began as a child inspired by her aunt who took stunning black and white photos and developing them in her darkroom. Horses at liberty are a special inspiration in Michael’s work.
Michael developed her keen eye and aesthetic through years of independent study. She also studied with equine fine art photographers and continues to explore new methodologies through online training and photography workshops. Her photography has taken her to Portugal, New Mexico, Colorado, and California.
Michael notes, “Photographing horses at liberty and wranglers doing what they do are my focus. I want to capture their power, grace, athleticism, individual expressions, and their stories with their keepers. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy photographing them.” .
