I don't think I've been without a camera since the age of sixteen. Starting out as a young and very enthusiastic photographer during horse shows in Bavaria, Germany, I had developed a passion not only for equines themselves but also to capture precious equestrian moments on camera. When I wasn't in the saddle, I was shooting pictures.
"Combining professional photography with more than four decades of equine know-how and first-hand experience."
My photography illustrates more than a snapshot. Focusing on attention to detail, creativity, and style, I aim to capture a moment in time, a feeling, and a memory that lasts a lifetime.
Still a horsewoman today, I understand what makes an extraordinary photo to contestants at rodeos and horse shows alike. I provide photos that, I myself, would be proud to hang on my own walls.
I offer state of the art equipment and shoot with full-frame cameras and L lenses only.
As a rule, I do not sell unedited photos directly at shows, hence I don’t bring a printer. All of my images go through a stringent selection process plus basic image editing (color and light correction/enhancement) to assure only the finest images are published. Pictures are available to purchase within a few days of the event at www.AngelikaDesigns.com
Please understand that if hired as the “official” photographer at an equestrian event it may not be possible to catch every rider at the show unless hired for specific contestants.
If hired for individual riders at equestrian shows, I focus my camera on my clients as your personal show photographer when in the arena. Hence, I am only able to take various additional pictures of other riders when my own clients are not competing.
Rodeo assignments outside of Chief Joseph Days Rodeo, who I work for as the official Public Relations Photographer, are available for non-PRCA rodeos only.
My photography work has been displayed in Cowboys & Indians (2016 & 2018) and various Oregon and Washington entertainment and vacation publications, at Art Gallery Festivals, private businesses, as well as for display advertisement for many clients in and out of Wallowa County including the Wallowa County Chieftain (2003-2007).
In 2005, I placed 2nd Place at the Wallowa Valley Arts Festival in Professional Digital Photography.
I hope you will consider my services for your event and the opportunity to provide professional quality photos at your next rodeo, horse show or fair.
