Molly O’Brien is an Island photographer who specializes in equine portraiture and wildlife photography. She has been photographing horses for 20 years, and has a Bachelors Degree in Art, with a specialization in photography. Her interest in Western art stems from both her own interest in horses and wildlife, and her parents history. Her father was raised in Texas and Montana, the son of a rancher and her mother, raised in South Dakota, wrote her doctoral dissertation on the impact of the horse on the development of the West.
Her photo travels have taken her to Ireland, Spain, South Africa, Kenya and above the Arctic Circle in Alaska. She has spent the last few years traveling around Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon, recording ranch life on the Northern plains and mountains.
Molly owns and operates Kincora Photo on Pearl Street in Tacoma. She’s able to process and print both film and digital files for the general public and specializes in color correction for several local artists. She processes and prints all of her own work.
