LEXINGTON, KY (March 10, 2009)  The Kentucky Horse Park’s famed International  Museum of the Horse will present equine photographer Scott Trees as a featured artist for the spring season of 2009.  Known around the world for his dramatic portrayal of the horses he photographs, this show promises to offer some spectacular imagery.  Entitled Because of Horses, the show is a compilation of photographs created during his international travels. 

Says Trees, “Because of horses, I have traveled the world.   Because of horses, I have had the opportunity to capture the essence and beauty of exotic locations.  Because of horses, I have met interesting people from all walks of life.  Because of horses, I have learned much and have had a remarkable journey in life.  This show is an effort to share some of those images that chronicle my journey.”

Born into an equestrian environment Trees first started his photographic journey with horses in 1973.  Photographing and creating unique videos for the past 36 years, he has distinguished himself as a leading international equine imaging specialist. Based in Glen Rose Texas, USA and Dubai, UAE, Scott Trees has conducted photo and video shoots in diverse locations including Russia, Poland, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America.  Because of Horses will showcase a special selection from these travels.

“Through my imagery, I seek to portray the individual character of each horse I photograph. Like humans, each horse is unique, and being able to capture that uniqueness and then being able to further market it is both a talent and a passion,” said Trees.

Combining creative and inspiring equine photography and video as well as equine marketing and publicity consulting, his company, Trees Media, offers a turnkey solution to the equine promotional niche industry.

Trees professional highlights include shooting equine advertising/editorial imagery for international clients and being published in most major equine publications throughout the world. He was the equestrian   photographer during the first Reagan Inaugural parade, owner of the Scott Trees Gallery from 1990-94, and has been a key note speaker at several breed association conventions.  His work has been featured articles in Equine Images, Western Horseman, Tutto Arabia, The Dubai Friday Magazine, and he was a recent winner in the  prestigious Cowboys and Indians annual photo competition.  In addition he offers seminars and lectures throughout the world and has been a media consultant on several international projects.

Because of Horses will run from March 13 – June 14 during regular park hours. A special Artists Reception will be held June 4 in the Main Gallery of the International Museum of the Horse, and will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Annual Egyptian Event.
