FROM HORSE GIRL TO AWARD-WINNING PHOTOGRAPHER

Carina Maiwald

Growing up in Germany Carina fell in love with horses at an early age and felt inspired by their uniqueness ever since then. The fascination about their beauty and strength lead her to being an award-winning photographer who is now working worldwide.

Her former job as a graphic designer laid the foundation for her creative approach to photography and helped her develop a comprehensive wealth of knowledge about composition, color psychology and important factors of memorable design.

With a special feeling for natural horse behavior and through her creative skills, Carina is able to create photographs that cast a spell on the viewer and show the true soul of the animal. Through her photos people can not only look at horses, but also feel and experience them with their hearts.

REFERENCES & PARTNERS:

Through a lot of sweat, heart and soul Carina’s passion grew into a passionate business in which the horse is always the center. Media such as FEI, CNN international, RTL, Digital Camera Magazine China and National Geographic published her award-winning work and she was twice named one of the 10 best equine photographers in the world.

Carina’s profession takes her to wherever horses are – from the green meadows of Germany through the world’s oldest desert in Namibia to the deep jungle of India. On her travels the photographer supports organizations, shelters and associations in order to give a voice to injured, traumatized and rescued animals through her photos.

MY PHOTOS ARE A PERSONAL HOMAGE TO THE STRENGTH, FREEDOM AND HARMONY IN THE EXPRESSION OF HORSES, WHICH MAKES THEM A GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION AND THE MOST EXCITING TEACHER FOR ME. I HAVE BEEN ENCHANTED BY THE SAME SPELL HORSES HAVE PUT ON PEOPLE FOR CENTURIES – AND ..

… this magic never let go of me.
