TWiP Talks 20: Horsing Around with Photography

[smart_track_player url=”″ color=”6a1915″ title=”Horsing Around with Photography” artist=”TWiP Talks 20″ ]In this episode, it’s a very interesting conversation with Gigi Embrechts, an equine and rural lifestyle photographer based in Colorado and Belgium. And Peter Demott an equine and portrait photographer based in Ohio.

A horse lover since childhood, Gigi naturally gravitated toward using them as her subjects. In 1999 she married her husband John, a native of Belgium, and was exposed to the European draft horse. She immediately began using her camera to capture their splendor and the time-honored way in which they are used. Today Gigi continues to write about, and photograph these amazing work animals. She often can be found exploring the backroads across both countries, in search of subject matter to document.
