Judy Dahl (nee Berger) was born and raised in the Foot Hills of southern Alberta. By the age of five, not only was she riding horses and feeding cows, she was drawing them. By age 12, she had the now famous Kodak Brownie and was taking pictures of everything that moved. Spending time in the corals was not just for looking after the animals! It was a time to capture some of the stunning images you will see in her stock photography site. Judy’s work here on this site is the cumulation of 40 years of photography.
Judy’s photographic artistry developed quickly, and by the time she was in her 20s raising a family, her skills as a top livestock and equine photographer were in professional demand. Judy’s photographs have been published in newspapers, magazines, and trade papers around the world.
Today, one of only a few Canadians to be accredited in both livestock and equine photography, Judy shoots prize-winning animals. Her portfolio has expanded to include photos of old and new barns, grain elevators, farmhouses and farmyards, dilapidated outhouses and farming machinery – mementos of lives and industry now past. Judy’s own personal collection of historical photos are also available on this site. They have come from relatives and friends and serves as an extensive collection of historic and present day reference of what farming and ranching life entails. Judy Dahl Stock Photography truly captures the passion and the love Judy has for her craft and her subjects.
