Best of 2015: Rodeo

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.

Bull Riding at the Polk County Fair

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.

2014 Philomath Frolic & Rodeo: Rough Stock

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.

Bull Fighting through the Eyes of the Bull Fighter

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

 

Rodeo Week: Bullfighters

Two good guys: Cody Harsch and Jason McCall.  In the bottom photo – you can see Jason wearing a GoPro camera on his hat (provided by Paul King).
