Eden Halbert began working with film photography at an early age, gradually transitioning to digital, but it wasn't until she built a business working with animals that her photography found its true inspiration. Her photography depicts each subject being their most natural and authentic selves, whether she's photographing pet dogs, domestic horses, or wildlife. She uses her knowledge of animal behavior to guide her approach, and the resulting images are both deeply personal portraits, as well as iconic, symbolic representations. She enjoys playing with creative techniques such as impressionist photography, or setting technical challenges to learn, but her real gift is in seeing and shaping light on her subjects, and her style is most often described as “clean,” “natural,” and “emotionally honest.”
Eden's photography business is Sierra Luna Photography, and she specializes in doing commissioned photography sessions of dogs and/or horses (sometimes with their people), as well as fine art photography for galleries, art shows, and private collections. Eden also teaches and mentors others, co-teaching horse photography workshops and offering private business and photography mentoring sessions.
Eden currently lives with her three siberian huskies on a few acres in Placerville, California, where she also has a dog boarding and training business, Sierra Dogs.
