THE EQUESTRIAN's PHOTOGRAPHER

My name is Alaina Hower, and I’m an equine photographer based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Horses are my passion, ever inspired by their beauty, strength, and individuality. It is my mission to capture the powerful presence of these creatures as well as the extraordinary bond that we have forged with them through the lens of a camera.  

Philosophy

I often am asked if I feel like I'm missing life if I'm constantly taking pictures. It's an interesting question - I can understand how it might seem that way. However, when I observe life through a lens, I see so much more than I do without. I become aware of colors painted across the earth, emotions amplified, the beauty of a moment distilled and time encapsulated. Do I feel like I'm missing life? On the contrary, moments I experience through a lens are the very essence of it.
