Bio: Shawn Hamilton
Shawn Hamilton, born in Nova Scotia in 1961, grew up primarily in Prince Edward County, Ontario. In 1984 Shawn combined her love of horses and passion for taking photos into a professional equestrian photography company called CLiX . What started as a horse show photography business has culminated into a very successful photojournalism career specializing in horseback riding vacation articles from all over the world. Shawn’s work can be seen on the covers of equestrian magazines throughout North America and Europe recently adding National Geographic Traveller Magazine to her repertoire. Shawn has chosen some of her favourite images to offer to the art world on mediums such as canvas, fine art paper and metal. The Online Contemporary Art gallery awarded Shawn’s A Splashing We Will Go first place for the theme water. Her work can be viewed in various galleries throughout Ontario and Shawn now gives back by offering workshops on how to photograph horses.
