I announced a month or so ago about my plans to retire from rodeo with the occasional chance of photographing hometown rodeos or local ones. It was a very hard decision to make because rodeo photography is a large part of what made me the photographer I am today.
Last weekend I helped out as a photographer for the first year of my friends Pass the Torch Leadership Camp which feature trick riding clinics designed to pass his knowledge of the equestrian thrill event of trick and roman riding to the next generation.
While I am busy working on edits from the camp my contribution was working on the marketing angle so this is something he can do again year to year.
As a childly earliest memory is laying on my grandparents living room floor with orange shag carpet, is to late evening the tv plays cartoons as my parents and grandparents sit around the shiny wood dining room table cards in their hands, drinks to the side and the smell of my paps cigar smoke in the air.
