Hello! My name is Markley Main. I am a young professional photographer and equestrian located in the Charleston, SC area. When I was younger I always loved taking pictures of just about everything.So, in 2018 my grandfather got me my first real camera. I immediately started photographing my horses at home, putting up props and posing my Haflinger with them, surely driving him crazy. My passion for the art took off in those first couple of years. As a competitive dressage rider (and the daughter of a wonderful dressage trainer) I'm always at shows. This gave me many wonderful opportunities to snap some shots before my rides. Requests for pictures started coming in one after another from friends and my mom's clients. All of which helped me to refine my photography skills. Eventually I had quite a few people regularly requesting photos. This lead me to create Phorse Images. My business soon took off. I was at every show and hardly ever put my camera down. Most of my free time is spent furthering my knowledge and taking my skills even further. I have no doubt this is still only the start of a long and exciting artistic journey. As a rider myself I know how much these pictures mean to the owner and riders that receive them. I love being able to provide these memories to fellow equestrians who enjoy these moments as much as I do.
