Rick Osteen and Howard Schatzberg began photographing horses in the 1970's. They embarked on a lifelong career and friendship in the equine photography business when working for June Fallaw. They have successfully partnered on the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show since the mid 1990's. They consider this show to be one of their greatest professional honors.

Howie Schatzberg

A second-generation equine photographer, Howie was blessed with the opportunity to learn from one of the pioneers of modern-day show horse photography, his father Jack Schatzberg. Learning the trade from the ground up, Howie has applied his skills and marketing tools to the ever-evolving digital age to become one of the nation’s leading show horse photographers. He lives in Cave Creek, Arizona with wife Megan who also manages the business. He is father to Hailey, Jacqueline, and Joey and grandfather to William.
