I have been lucky to have time with both my aunt and my niece as of late between my scheduling. On a down day my aunt and I took the niece to the Good Zoo about twenty minutes from where we live.
To those who know me it is no secret I have spent the last decade as a rodeo photographer. Those long nights in rodeo pens, covered in sweat and dust is where I learned to be a better photographer in terrible light situations. It is where I learned stop action capturing, panning, artistic shots vs photojournalistic and so much more….
For the longest time as a photographer I didn’t utilize the instagram platform… However in recent years, though admittedly late to the party, I have begun using the platform… The past nine months I have been sharing a lot of my rodeo content, from when I first started to the end of my last season images.
Equine photographers are slowly becoming a thing of the past and it is largely due to the thought that any image belongs to the rider and horse when it is not true. Photographers see constant theft but it is important to know the photographer owns the image, even if you find it on google there is a good chance it is copy righted and not public domain.
