It’s that time of year when I like to look back on the year that just closed and try to distill a set of “best of”. As I had the chance to shoot a bit of rodeo this year – let’s start with a few of those.
So – in no particular order – here you go.
The Polk County Fair and Rodeo – not only did it produce more good barrel racing images than the bronc events – but the bull riding images were some of the best from the night. I often don’t shoot straight into the gate – but on this evening it worked well. And like the barrels – the light + dirt were nice compliments.
Last week I shared a few from the Roping & Racing events. This week – rough stock.
As it turns out, it was also an odd weekend for the bull riders as no one made it the full 8 seconds. Good riders – just better bulls.
That’s Bullfighter Cody Harsch.
More Bull Riding
This is a great video from friend and fellow photographer Paul King – the guy who patiently showed me the ropes of rodeo photography.
Bottom line: Bull fighter (Jason McCall) + GoPro camera = Great 3 Minute Clip
