Notes From A Rodeo Photographer

Notes From A Rodeo Photographer:

Notes From A Rodeo Photographer:  Being a rodeo photographer isn’t about just showing up with a nice camera or being able to edit photo’s on your iPhone. Knowing the events and understanding the arena helps to capture the moments. Knowing the lighting helps make the shots “pop.” Now from shooting from broad daylight in the Texas Panhandle to shooting at dusk with rain clouds building in the Southern Colorado Mountains, you have to understand how to light. Now I personally use Alien Bee from Paul C. Buff, because, well I can’t afford anything else and I got mine cheap from another photographer Kent Kerschner the FotoCowboy. When I first started I shot with a first generation Canon Digital Rebel the 300D with kit lenses and a 75-300mm. Now I shoot with a Canon 6D with a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 which gives me better control and more depth of function. When you add quality equipment body, lenses and lights and work hard at your craft you should be able to capture good pictures that show the action of all athletes in the arena.

Bucking Horses

Bucking Horses. There has been a lot of interest in bucking bulls and it appears to be a growth industry. But the question is what will it take for bucking horses to catch up?

_MG_1881fb There are many new associations trying to get the bucking horse game off the ground. But it seems the process is moving along slowly. Now part of the slow uptake could be the lack of media interaction, lets face it the PRCA is not exactly a media darling like the PBR. Another part could be the lack of big events for riders, you don’t see many $50,000 added events for Bronc Riders.

So what will it take for the horses to become an investment and not a sideshow?
