Sue studied photographic arts at Ryerson University in Toronto, dabbled in documentary photography and then left photography for many years as she pursued a successful career in Management Consulting.


At the end of the last millennium, a magnificent and extraordinary horse entered Sue’s life and irrevocably changed her path forever. This horse impacted Sue immensely and lead her to Tucson Arizona where she was in the inaugural Epona apprenticeship class studying Equine Experiential Learning and Equine Facilitated Human Development with Linda Kohanov. Since Epona, Sue has studied natural horsemanship and equine behaviour with other equine luminaries such as Monty Roberts and Chris Irwin. Sue has a diploma with distinction in Equine Sciences and a certificate in Equine Business Management through the University of Guelph.


While at Epona, Sue interest in photography was renewed when she met esteemed equine photographer, Tony Stromberg. Doing workshops with Tony has taken Sue around the globe and to meeting up with other esteemed photographers. Sue now travels extensively photographing wild horses throughout the globe and helps to bring attention to the plight of wild horses in North America.


Sue also has a deep passion for shooting birds of prey, wildlife, flowers, people, and landscapes throughout her travels around the globe. 


Sue’s passion is capturing the beauty and grace of nature, and all that lives and thrives within it.


"The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire". ~Sharon Ralls Lemonur
