Margaret Burlingham



When I found myself running, with camera in hand, after my first race horse walking purposefully to the track for morning training, I knew I had to learn more about photographing quick moving, spontaneous equines.

Since that moment twelve years ago, Thoroughbred race horses and farm landscapes have fascinated me.  I love to capture scenes from our 500 acre farm in southeastern Wisconsin.  The race horse and farm worlds are a mystery to many people.  I want to bring the viewer into the barn, the track, the field, the woods, and the prairies for a first hand look.  


My work is exhibited regularly at Gallery 223 in Lake Geneva and venues around southeastern Wisconsin.  I work with Coady Photography, the track photographer at Arlington Park near Chicago, and have photographed the Arlington Million, the Breeder’s Cup, and been published in Blood-Horse, The Horse and Florida Horse.  I volunteer as a photographer for CANTER-Chicago and Galloping Out, which help find new homes and careers for retiring Thoroughbreds.  My farm photography has won awards from the Hoard Museum and the National Corn Growers.  I also sell stock photography on iStock and Adobe.
