As much a storyteller as a photographer, Kathryn Burke finds magic in the everyday -- gathering light,color and texture to create memorable images. Inspiration comes from her lifelong love of horses and a desire to share their spirit, power and grace, as well as the joy they bring to their guardians.

“I view my life through the camera,” Burke says. “When I see a subject I love through the lens, it is intimate, so it can be a tremendously emotional moment. My clients often say they’re surprised at howcomfortable they feel being photographed by me; I think perhaps they understand how very much I care about them, about preserving their memories, and making them feel as beautiful as they truly are.”

Burke has been shooting for over 30 years, becoming a professional equine photographer in 2005. In recent years, she has devoted herself to creating heirloom lifestyle books for equestrian families, building cherished relationships along the way.

Burke lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in the Maritime Provinces of Canada
