As a photographer we are expected and usually visualized as carting around a large body, bag with lens, among the tripods and flashes that help make the magic. However there is a subset that uses smaller technology or those like me who when out and about on a regular non-working day use smaller devices for fun and ease…
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.
