Rodeo is a way of life that involves entire families, ties to the ranch tradition and the landscapes that I love to photograph, and has moments of pageantry and exciting action.
This year I am embarking on a major project to follow the rodeo and create a series of stories about strong characters in rodeo and ranching. This project is an opportunity for the people of rodeo and ranching to share their stories and create a better understanding of cowboy values. Principal photography has begun.


I am interested in partnering with like-minded corporations and institutions that are respected in the rodeo world to sponsor the making of Rodeo Life and the presentation of these stories to a broad audience. Short films, exhibitions, publications, fine art prints, web stories, corporate web galleries and multimedia projections at industry gatherings are among the diverse formats through which this project can bring your brand to your community.
