I remember receiving my first camera as a birthday present when I was about 8 or 9. It was a small, red Kodak camera that used 126 film cartridges. I carried it everywhere with me, primarily taking photos of my friends, horses and other pets. I still have the photo albums I made from those early images, and it was a heartbreaking day when the plastic shutter release knob finally broke off.
From there, I graduated to a Pentax K1000, from which I learned the finer points of photography in high school combined with a talented and caring art teacher. I took classes and worked on the yearbook in high school before continuing my photography studies in college as an elective. I’ve now spent more than 3/4 of my life with a camera by my side, whether photographing equestrian competitions, the natural environment or wildlife. I regularly attend workshops to improve my skills and love being a lifelong student of photography.
I’ve traveled the world from Kentucky to Argentina to Dubai taking photographs and covering equestrian competitions, and I wish I knew then what I know now. I’ve enjoyed my time as a writer, editor, photographer, researcher, publicist and designer. And although I’ve earned many awards over the years, I’m still waiting for that perfect image and ideal article… I own and operate Cameron Green Media LLC, which has allowed me to become the editor for the United States Hunter Jumper Association’s publication In Stride, one of my many wonderful clients.
