Maike Thorun (MTH)
Maike Thorun - that's me. I am th owner of buy-a-picture.de. For me everything began when we planned to offer the pictures of my life partner - Roberto Robaldo. This way in the beginning I just offered Roberto's pictures for sale on a booth at the shows.
2009 I began to take horse pictures myself. In the same year we opened our first webshop at buy-a-picture.de, where soon also many photographers came together, whom we would like to introduce to you herewith.
I started riding when I was a little kid. In 2004 I switched to western riding and in 2005 I also started driving a carriage. Currently I do not own a horse. But who knows what the future holds...

Roberto Robaldo (RR)
Roberto already took pictures as teenager. 2005 he took his first pictures of horses. In the beginning he did that just out of boredome when Maike took her riding lessons. But soon ambition was aroused and he soon became a popular photographer especially among western riders.
In August 2007 he purchased the 2003 born Noriker gelding Purzel (Zukunft Schaunitz XVI). Both became an excellent team and go through "thick and thin" together - even when beside the photography he has just limited time left for Purzel.

Petra Kleinwegen / Horses by Beagle (HBB)
Petra Kleinwegen belongs to the team since mid of 2009. She is aktually taking pictures "since forever", but for a very long time just as hobby. Only since her first digital camera in 2003 she began to intensify her hobby and by now is every now and then part-time on horse shows - most of them western horse shows - and also began in the past years to take pictures for editorial use and on shootings. If possible she prefers to take impressions than just show pictures.
She is riding western style and even did cutting sports temporarily. Currently she is just hacking out her Quarter Horse mare.
Her logo - the beagle - arose from the fact that you can meet her often with a beagle. Beagle Mike was in their own words the most insistent impression of the american judges which they took home from the Quarter Horse European Championships 2005.

Carina Maiwald (CM)
Animals are for me like the real love: You cannot do without. Carina tries to combine her love for animals and for photography since she is 16. A process she is continuously improving with increasing professional equipment and with several workshops. As she - like almost any little girl - is doing horseback riding she does have a deep passion for horses. Several breeds and riding styles are fascinating her again and again. And she owns the dream of every girl: Her own American Quarter Horse. Since more than 2 years she accompanies local equestrian facilities and studs at breeding shows as well as horse shows. Some of her horse show pictures are offered for sale at buy-a-picture.de.
