I have had a thought in my head for a long, long while in regards to an area of photography that has been a huge part of my life— Rodeo Photography……

First Rodeo vs Current Rodeo Photography

First Rodeo vs Current Rodeo Photography

I photograph a lot of rodeos, and started back in 2010 with a portrait lens, a low level DSLR and not much clue on how to really shoot action in poor, poor, so poor light.

Nearly a decade later and I can see the improvement from gear to style and ability. I don’t often like to reflect back on the old because I really was terrible but my how i have grown.

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.

As a creative it is always fun to see the reactions to the things we create. Sometimes we get to witness the reactions in person and sometimes all we get are those instagram favorites, of facebook likes and reshares.

So a few weeks ago I made available a free ebook which I hope you all have grabbed!…I have been hard at work on my physical book- Moments of Rodeo is set to be made available for purchase in June of this year! (Excitement, clapping, bouncing, and much dancing!) If you follow me on instagram chances are you have seen a lot of my rodeo photography work, as I have been very active on sharing it with the instastratosphere and as much as I love the digital world nothing beats holding a print in my hand.

I never intentionally set out to be a rodeo photographer, if anything my start in photography was shooting portraits and barrel races at day time 4-h shows. It was for fine art projects for my advance art classes in my final year of high school not an intentional career path….

Photography is a great medium but sometimes the photographer is simply just thought of as a photographer name forgotten.
