Lisa Mardell is a photographer based in Guildford, Surrey, specialising in evocative images of horses and landscapes. In her equine work her inspiration comes from the majestic Iberians of Portugal and Spain, the ranch horses of the United States and the white horses of the Camargue in France.
She also enjoys creating abstract and impressionistic landscapes and is inspired by the colours and the constantly shifting movement of the sea, and from her travels.
Over the last few years, her work has appeared in photographic and travel magazines, including Sunday Times Travel, Wanderlust, the Telegraph travel website, Practical Photography and Outdoor Photography, as well as in brochures for Canon cameras. She’s a tutor for Lacock Photography School in Wiltshire -- and an event photographer for Spidge.
She’s twice been shortlisted for the Wanderlust Travel Photographer of the Year award, shortlisted three times for the Outdoor Photographer of the Year, won a gold award for one of her colour prints of the horses of the Camargue from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain, and secured a finalist place in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards two years in a row.
