Mayra Vidal might be based in Malmö, Sweden, but that doesn't stop her from exploring the world for a chance to photograph horses. She's been a lover of horses for a very long time, and combining her love for horses and photography has quickly become her life's passion.
When horses are your subject, it is hard not to capture their effortless beauty. But for Mayra, her calling in life to practice equine photography makes her feel alive. She loves to showcase the simplistic beauty of the horses, specifically the majestic Lusitano horse breed. Each year, Mayra travels to Portugal for a chance to photograph these incredible horses up close and personal.
Equine by Vidal Photography is Mayra's personal company where she showcases her work. And while she photographs a number of horses, the warmblood Lusitanos are a personal favorite for her. The Lusitano was the steed of choice by kings and warriors, and it's easy to see why when looking at them. They're simply regal!
I had the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her lovely work and what inspires her, and you'll find my questions and her answers below.
