Pamalina Prints – A Passion for Polo
We all know that feeling of falling in love with a place and that the mere thought of having to leave and therefore not waking up there every day, hurts. Well this is exactly how Pamalina Prints came to be.
Pamela had been in Argentina several times and every time she got back to EZE airport she felt like a piece of her was left behind. Last year on her trip to the polo hub in South America she made sure to capture as many pictures as possible of the magnificent place to take back home to the US with her.
“I would ride around bareback in my dirty jeans, backwards hat and camera strap around my neck exploring new places and capturing anything that would hang around long enough for me to photograph.”
A whopping 7.000 pictures of the Argentine landscape, polo ponies, players, grooms, tack and everything and anything related to polo and the laid-back Gaucho lifestyle made their way home to California. But she didn’t just want these pictures to be forgotten on her hard disk, so Pam put her creative mind to the task of bringing these photos to life. Creating something very special to adorn her walls at home and remind her of the Pampas.
After hours of doodling and playing around with colors she found her niche and we can all be thankful for that! Pamalina Prints was created 🙂
These pictures are digitally made and can be printed on anything, Pamela reassured me that an acrylic piece is the most beautiful, making the art really pop! But with my nomadic lifestyle of moving around every few months according to the polo season calendar, I figured I better get something a little more handy like a poster, which can easily be rolled up and taken with me. When I eventually stick to one spot for a longer period of time I will put it in a nice frame.
It was so hard for me to decide which one I wanted (which Pam so kindly had printed and shipped to me as a gift), because to start with I loved them all and secondly we are back to my nomadic lifestyle. I don’t have a specific place in mind for the picture. But the pink just talked to me and now that I have my poster I’m so happy with it. I hang it wherever I happen to be staying, and it immediately brightens up my mood when I see it.
Check out all of her pictures for sale here and remember they can be printed on anything, so it’s really only your own creativity that sets the limit.
I met Pamela in person on my last trip to Florida, although I had known her on social media for a while and already admired her. Apart from being a stunning and smart lawyer, she is also a badass on the polo field, with a 3 in women’s handicap. Her passion for polo is infectious and clear to see. She started playing in high school and has never stopped.
Recently she started the Women’s Polo Network to connect polo playing women across the globe and she is also a model and brand ambassador for US Polo Assn. Pam is one to follow and her pictures can bring that special Argetinian vibe to any home.
Argentina is also where my polo passion began back in 2010, read about it here and share your story of how you fell in love with polo in the comments box below.
