Barbara D. Livingston is one of the most respected photographers in horse racing.  The chief photographer for the Daily Racing Form, her own images cover a span of nearly a half-century.  She is a five-time Eclipse Award winner, the equivalent of horse racing's Academy Awards.

Her photographs include tracks and races at venues such as Saratoga Race Course, Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita; major events like the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes and Breeders' Cup; breeding farms around the country; and famous horses like Secretariat, Man o' War, Barbaro, Rachel Alexandra, and American Pharoah. Livingston also photographs other equine breeds, including Standardbreds; and a specialty is horses of unusual colors.

Livingston also specializes in conformation photography - a craft, perfected by the great Tony Leonard, that Livingston has studied since the 1970s.

Livingston also owns an historical collection which includes photographs from the 1930s through 1980s by James W. Sames III and John C. Wyatt.  Those priceless photos include Man o' War, Citation, Whirlaway, Twilight Tear, countless other important horses of their times, and many Kentucky Derbies.

In addition, Livingston is the sole author/photographer of six books and sole photographer of a seventh.
