About Kate


Kate Bradley Byars 

 

I'm a writer & photographer based in Texas. 

Foremost, I tell stories. Whether through the written word or visually depicted, the subject speaks through my articles and images - at least that is the goal! In my years as a documentarian of the Western way of life, I learned that the best way to tell someone's story is to get to know them. What is just below the surface? That mentality runs true to my photography sessions. I strive to make each meeting fun, and while we are having a good time, I get the best information and images. My goal is to make people feel good about themselves and provide a memory that will last a lifetime - in a published article or a photo album. Plus, I just dig putting the spotlight on other people.

Writing and providing photographs for Western equine and lifestyle publications is my specialty. Currently, I'm the managing editor for Ranch Horse News and the Reined Cow Horse News

In addition to writing and photography, I co-partner on The Freelance Remuda. Freelance Remuda began as a podcast about navigating the equine media frontier. With my co-host and seasoned freelancer, Abigail Boatwright, the podcast explores the trials and triumphs surrounding life as a freelancer in equine media, while sharing valuable tips from equine media editors and creatives doing what they love. Now, we offer MENTORSHIPS to fellow aspiring freelancers. Check out our mentorship offerings at freelanceremuda.com or download our brochure here

Our hope for the Freelance Remuda is to help train up a herd of professionals specializing in horses, from which editors and businesses in equine media can hire to do great work. Find and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or Libsyn, and for more information, go to freelanceremuda.com.
