|Lee Sackett was born waaayyy back in the mid 1900ís in California.
It didnít take him long to learn how to get his momís camera out and
how to work it. His mom quickly gave him his own camera to save herís.
His new found creativity was soon curtailed, a little, when his mom
explained she couldnít just buy him rolls of film everyday.
Leeís Mom, a school teacher, baked at a summer camp near Lake Tahoe
for the summer months. When Lee was in the 5th grade, he went and
announced to the people at the horse corrals he was there to help too.
So, they put him to work. By the time he was in the 8th grade they had
hired him to work with the horses. And so began his life long passion of
working with horses. After the first year of high school, Lee moved to Idaho to learn more about working with horses, ranching, and of course finishing high school.
Lee, a Certified Farrier (Horseshoer), has also worked as a cowboy, logger, truck driver, carpenter, and horse trainer. The horses he has trained have won national as well as state titles.
Lee and his wife, Diane, live on a small ranch in Burnett, Wisconsin where they raise and train horses as well as raise beef cattle.
Lee is an award winning photographer, award winning horse trainer, and published author. He combines his knowledge of the outdoors, love for animals and people, to form his unique perspective in photography.
