Barbara Bostock is an artist and photographer who is deeply seated in the cowboy way of life. She enjoys seizing every opportunity to share this life by capturing authentic from the rolling hills to the majestic mountain tops, along the gently gurgling creeks and roaring rivers. She uses her camera to subtly capture such beauty around us.

Barb’s concept is as famous photographer Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” Come experience the moment as they have been captured, crisply focused as if each scene was framed through the ears of her horse.

Barbara was born in B.C. on the lower mainland. Her family started out farming, then later her family moved to the Merritt area where they started ranching. This is when she first fell in love with photography in the western lifestyle. She began by taking pictures to share with her family and friends. Later she moved to Alberta in the late 80's where she raised her family. It has only been in recent years that she picked up a camera again. For her three things that she is so passionate about is - taking astonishing pictures of nature & wildlife. working cattle, riding.

Most of her photos are taken from while she is riding. She loves being able to ride, stop and look at the stunning landscapes, capture the essence of what she’s thinking of and share it to the world for people to see the exquisiteness and relish it. This passion is what made her fall in love with photography of the western lifestyle. In the past two years, she has started to focus on photography of the wild horse of southern Alberta.
