-1I am a photographer based in Bærums Verk, near Oslo, Norway.

My interest in photography started in my student days at Glasgow University where I worked as a photographer for Student magazine, covering all sorts of rock concerts and bands. In 1993 I participated in my first workshop with Morten Krogvold, followed by further workshops with well – known photographers such as Claire Rosen, Jeff Cowen & Jim Casper, Eivind Røhne, and Mona Nordøy to name a few.

I am always looking to broadened my work and gain inspiration and insights from others so I like to attend different types of courses, travel and meet new people. My deep and long time relationship with horses led me to Equine photography… So doing a combination of two profound passions, photography and horses is for me a fantastic opportunity to do what I love the most. I really feel I am in the right element. Aiming to show/convey the personality and character of the horse, and love to capture to magical interaction between animals and people.

I work for Equilife magazine, and have also been published in several other equine and lifestyle magazines. I also do private horse and rider portraits, as well as fashion photography. In addition I work for Lusitano Horse Finder on horse related projects for articles and art projects in Portugal and Spain.

I photograph weddings and I am working on Fine Art projects. I’ve been selected by Norwegian Broadcasting Cooperation (NRK) – for internal decoration. I also work at NRK as project manager and coordinator for drama productions.

Susanne is a talented amateur photographer that has a real eye for photographing horses in action. She is Austrian living in Switzerland and Portugal. She currently has a super Lusitano in training in Portugal, he’s her first Lusitano as a result she has become a total fan of the breed.

Prior to purchasing Cofre for many years she successfully bred and showed Welsh Cobs. Her transition to Lusitanos was inspired by the sport of working equitation she was enthralled by the power, agility and intelligence of the Lusitano.

Susanne is particularly inspired to captures those special intimate moments of the horse and rider in action, the concentration and dynamic partnership. She loves to visit the studs and take her camera out into the field amongst the mares and foals. She also photographs the wonderful fighting black bulls. One of her fabulous photographs was recently turned into a stunning painting by Sabine Marciniak and presented at Golega.
