Meet Your Photographer

 

Me bonding with my favorite old man at Freedom Hill Horse Rescue. Talk about love! Photograph by Kara Rush.

Hi! I’m Kristina Truluck.

I photograph combat and horses. Not necessarily together, thankfully. Although I did try to convince one of the leaders that I supported to get some horses while we were deployed. They were a Calvary unit after all!

I was that ‘horse freak’ all throughout school. I still am. Although I didn’t get to ride more than twice a year on some questionable horses through the trails of south western Florida, I buried myself in horse-related books. Now I volunteer for the amazing Freedom Hill Horse Rescue as both photographer and poop-scooper.

My home is made up of three wild boys (well, two, but my husband is just a giant kid!), a female Manx named George, and a fuzzy black cat-tumor named Loki. Although horseless for the time being, I like to pretend that Brocca, the handsome fellow in the photo to the right, is mine. You see that bond? I never realized it until my best friend took this picture of us. That right there is why I love photographing horses and their people. It’s amazing.

Since I find random facts interesting and entertaining, here are 6 random facts about me:

  • Like any proper Floridian, I love Publix.
  • I’m ambibuttrous – I ride english and western.
  • I make faces. A lot. It’s a combination of being involved in the deaf community when I was in high school and being told I have a really bad case of RBF. I don’t want to scare people away.
  • As a kid, I used to take hundreds of pictures of my iguana, snakes, and cats with my dad’s film camera. I was a badass photographer with that ‘auto’ button.
  • I used to ‘ride’ my grandparent’s cattle because they refused to get horses. By ride, I mean sit on them while my sister ran around with a coffee can of grain.
  • My day doesn’t start until I’ve had a cup of coffee or an energy drink.
