Living Images by Carol Walker
Carol’s passion for photography started at an early age, with
animals as her favorite subjects. She
studied literature and photography as an undergraduate at Smith College, and
continued her education in photography after graduating, studying portraiture
and nature photography. She has traveled all over the world photographing
wildlife for the past 30 years. In 2000, Carol started her business Living
Images by Carol Walker, specializing in photographing horses. Carol’s images masterfully
showcase the beauty of horses with her stunning images of horses at liberty.
She has taught horse photography workshops for the past 10 years in Dubai,
France, Germany and all over the United States. She sells her fine art prints
from her website as well as in several galleries in Colorado and has won
numerous awards with her artwork. Carol’s
work in photography and with wild horses was featured in Horse Illustrated’s
February 2017 issue. She has won multiple awards at Colorado art shows from 2013
- 2019 including best in show in three juried shows and best in Photography in
12 juried shows on the Front Range of Colorado.
Sixteen years ago, Carol began photographing wild horses. As
she followed several herds in Wyoming, Colorado and Montana, she became aware
of how precarious their situation on public lands has become. Since then, she has dedicated herself to
educating people with her photographs and stories about wild horses. She is one
of the leading advocates working to keep America’s wild horses wild and free on
our public lands. Her three books, Wild
Hoofbeats: America’s Vanishing Wild Horses, Horse Photography: The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers and the
newest, Galloping to Freedom: Saving the
Adobe Town Appaloosas are all multiple book award winners. Proceeds from
the sales of Carol’s artwork and books fund her work to keep America’s wild
horses wild and free. For the last seven years, Carol has produced a calendar
of her images each year to benefit first the Cloud Foundation and now Wild
Horse Freedom Federation. Carol was the
Director of Field Documentation and on the Board of Directors for Wild Horse
Freedom Federation for 6 years, dedicating herself to stopping the roundup and
removal of wild horses from our public lands, and keeping our wild horses wild
Carol sees her artwork as an ideal vehicle for enhancing and
expressing her advocacy for wild horses.

Horses have inspired me since I was a little girl. Their beauty, pride grace and beautiful souls are what I seek to capture in my images.
