Laurie Bartolo is a professional photographer living in the American Midwest who specializes in expressive photos of dogs, horses and rural life. She initially became interested in photography because of her love for dogs, and spent many years photographing this delightful subject. Deeply inspired by the all-American beauty that surrounds her home in rural Michigan, she regularly photographs horses and rural subjects. Her work includes images of dogs, horses, farm animals, old barns and cars, and a variety of fun finds from her photo explorations in the country.
The signature textured effects seen in her work are carefully composed both in the camera and during post-processing. Her animal photography is further distinguished by her ability to capture the spirit and personality of the animal while showcasing its form and beauty.
Her work is available as cards, prints, and finished pieces of photo art personally matted and framed by her. You can find her at dog and horse events or contact her directly with sales inquiries. Upcoming events and other news are announced on this site, her Facebook page, and Twitter feed. She is available for private photo shoots for dog and horse owners in the southeast Michigan area.
Laurie shares her rural Michigan home with her husband and three rescued dogs – 200 pounds of dog – that make her life a little more chaotic and a lot more fun!
