Rough Riding Performance Photos

This afternoon, the Culver Rough Riding team performed for the Admissions Open House. After the performance, they allowed the visiting potential students to ride the horses and talk with the team. I’ve posted the photos to:

Indiana Sports Photography: Culver Academy Horse Show Invitational


This past weekend, the Culver Academy Jumping teams hosted an IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) invitational horse show at the Vaughn Equestrienne Center. Originally scheduled for two days, due to bad forecasted weather, the event was shortened to a single day with only a couple of visiting teams. Though the event was shortened, the Academy did a wonderful job of hosting it and everyone appeared to have a good time. And I hope you’ll agree with me that the horses were not only great performers but beautiful to watch and photograph. I’m a horse lover and was a trooper at Culver, so I tend to watch the horses more than the people.

I’m always so impressed with the students and teams at these horse events. It’s just a classy sport to watch and capture on film. The Academy students did well in the different events, taking several first places, seconds, and thirds. They should be proud of another great performance. I look forward to the big February event.

I’ve posted some of my favorite photos here. Other photos are located at:

Hilton Head Wildlife Photography

This week, I made a last-minute trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina to surprise my wife who is down there for 21 days. During my 48-hour trip, I had a little time to explore the island and shoot some of the beautiful wildlife in their natural environments. In my travels, I came across many types of birds, dolphins, alligators, and pelicans. I’ve posted a few photos here. More can be found at:


Culver Indiana Photography: Culver Academy Horses

There are a few things in life that Ginny and I can’t resist. Me, I can’t sit down on the couch without changing into comfy clothes. Ginny will never discard an email from J. Jill, Pottery Barn, or Crate and Barrel without first opening it to read it. (Thankfully, she doesn’t buy things too often.) Neither one of us can be near horses with a camera in hand without taking at least a few photos. During yesterday’s Tour de Max, one location that we shot the cyclists from was by Culver Academy’s paddock, which had the horses out for the morning. Following are some of the photos that we captured.


Culver Indiana Photography: Academy Horses on Break

 Today, Ginny and I decided to take a short break from work and take some pictures of the horses that were out in one of Culver Academies’ fields. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and I think the horses liked the company, though they get a little bashful around clicking cameras. Here are a handful of the shots we took. Enjoy!
