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. For the past 30 years, she has photographed wildlife all over the world.
In 2000, Carol started her business, Living Images by Carol Walker, specializing in horse photography. Carol’s images illuminate the relationship between horses and their people, as well showcase the beauty of horses with her stunning images of horses at liberty. She teaches equine photography workshops for amateur photographers and markets her fine art prints from her website www.LivingImagesCJW.com as well as in several locations on the Front Range of Colorado. Carol’s artwork has been honored with numerous awards.
Eleven 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 the wild horses. She is one of the leading advocates for keeping America’s wild horses wild and free on our public lands. Proceeds from the sales of Carol’s artwork and books fund her efforts. Each year, Carol produces a calendar of her images to benefit the Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
