From a very young age, I have always been intrigued by the camera. Taking it everywhere I went trying to capture meaningful moments from my early childhood to the present day. Whether it was a day at the beach or climbing trees with my friends, I had a camera. My love for photography grew quickly as I started getting my mother’s (another photographer) hand-me-down equipment. It wasn’t until I entered the horse world that I started to gain a platform. With the help of my trainer, Megan, and my barn family at Shamrock Manor Equestrian, I began to grow a clientele base in order to share and improve my work. Then, at the age of 14, I started my official business, Ariel Harper Photography. After countless hours at horse shows photographing class after class, I quickly grew my photography skills and began selling my images. This opened opportunity across the equestrian community where I was able to work under countless Pro-Photographers on various Hunter/Jumper circuits, including WEF, County Heir, and Venice Equestrian Tour. Now at 18, navigating through college, I plan to continue growing as a photographer, videographer, and a business owner in the Metro-Atlanta area.
