Welcome to my blog!
A little about me:
I am Stephen Crowers, a photographer located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I’ve been a dabbler in photography since I was a kid – beginning with playing around with my father’s Kodak 35mm and Polaroid equipment and continuing to a plethora of 110 and 35mm “cheap” camera’s though my childhood. I eventually got borrowed use of a Minolta Maxxum 7 SLR – which remains one of the best camera’s I’ve ever held in my hands.
As I moved into adulthood, I did the usual snapshots of the kids and pets – but it remained a hobby until recently. My wife trains horses and riders for a living, and something just captivated me about the way a horse moves. Strength, beauty, grace…these words are synonymous with a horse in motion.
In 2004, I bought a bridge camera (basically an advanced point-and-shoot) and began my education in trying to capture that grace in images. In 2006, I upgraded to a digital SLR (a Sony Alpha – based heavily on the feeling I had holding that Minolta SLR when I was younger.)
This year, I’ve taken the next step in my photographic journey and started looking towards photographing horses as a business. The website is still in development but please have a look at my portfolio images at http://www.stephencrowersphotography.com/.
This is the space that you’ll find my thoughts on starting an equestrian photography business, shows and events that I’ll be working and more generalized information on getting the most out of your photo session.
Thanks for visiting!
