Kamper Photographs Powerful Women for EQ LivingSometimes, dreams do come true; a fact proven recently when photographer George Kamper received the dream job by Equestrian (EQ) Living to meet with and photograph a number of incredibly accomplished women and their favorite steeds. The series, which had George travel across the country on a number of occasions, involves captivating personalities like Mindy Peters, Ann Leary, Kelly Klein, Martha Stewart, Eileen Rockefeller and Georgina Bloomberg. And as if that wasn't enough, George also got an opportunity to ride down beautifully green forest paths on one of Eileen's horse carriages!
While Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas was fortunate to have not been impacted by Hurricane Irma, the storm left devastation in her path across several family islands of The Bahamas. In service of the shared mission commitment made by Atlantis, to ensure a flourishing ecology and economy of the country, Atlantis has set forth multiple efforts to help support the rescue, regeneration and rebuilding of communities in Inagua, Ragged Island, Mayaguana, Acklins, Bimini and Grand Bahama. Atlantis will also use these efforts to support Red Cross efforts across the state of Florida, where many have been severely impacted.*
Atlantis Paradise Island has launched a fundraising campaign here on YouCaring. From now until October 31st, Atlantis will match all donations received dollar for dollar, with 100% of the proceeds going to The Bahamas Red Cross, and to the Red Cross efforts in Florida, up to $250,000.
*Atlantis, Paradise Island has also made a separate donation to help in recovery efforts in Houston in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Additionally, we work with a group of dedicated editors, techs, assistants, stylists, and models, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those that help us make beautiful pictures.
The whole idea is to make the story look effortless, seamless, and beautiful; often times, with a very limited budget, resources, and challenging locations. Creating a story takes a great deal of work, determination, and quick thinking to make beautiful moments out of what could be everyday banality.
Thank you to all the story tellers and picture makers I admire and hope to be like when I grow up.

Shooting stills alongside a video crew filming tv commercials isn’t for the faint of heart. Foremost, you have to play well with others and know your way around a commercial film set. Additionally, you have to be a team player while focusing on what you’ve been hired to do - stay out of the way and deliver great stills - It’s kinda like magic. Now you see me, but mostly you don’t!
You could say I'm a pro since Ive earned 8 Tellies myself directing film, and have been shooting stills alongside tv commercials for many years. It takes skills that many do not possess, so Im excited to share with you some behind the scenes and final images from shooting alongside videos.

Shot for Equestrian Living Magazine, check out some of our photographs of the art of making custom crafted polo mallets at Tato’s. One of the very few creators that caters to the top Polo players from around the globe.
“The most important element of mallet making is the mallet cane, which is crafted from manau, a member of the rattan family typically harvested in Southeast Asia. We order the raw canes with the root, my father makes the decision where to cut it. He’s the one who knows exactly what our clientele is looking for.”
