The photographer Martin Kavanagh
My love of the outdoors and nature kindled my passion for photography. The goal to capture the sights and scenery I discovered in many outdoor adventures led to my growth as a photographer.
The venture into equine photography began many years ago when a friend asked me to photograph her horse. The success of the photo shoot led to similar requests from friends and a new direction in my photographic career was born. Over the years I have come to appreciate the beauty of the horse and the dedication of the riders to these magnificent animals. The bond that develops between the horse and rider is special and to see them working closely together, in a lot of cases without any apparent effort on the part of the rider, has always amazed me. They are always a pleasure to photograph.
I was Born in Dublin, Ireland and came to the United States in 1978. I currently live in Aberdeen New Jersey.
I studied at the New York Institute of Photography and my work has been exhibited at various New Jersey galleries.
