A good story makes you listen but a good story with a good photo can take you to another world. That’s what we want to do at rodeo fame, invite you inside our world.
We work close with photographers and enjoy telling their story because without them, we couldn’t do what we do. They live on the scene and literally capture moments of life for us to remember. Their talent is raw and passionate, and that makes me feel extremely honored to work with them. Every photographer brings a different perspective to the table. Looking at life from different perspectives can teach us to not judge at first glance, take a second look and then a second look…

What is your style?
>> I try to make images that create a sort of tension for the viewer. It’s storytelling, for sure, but really focusing on the point in the story where’s there’s an explosion of action, or reaction, or there’s something about to happen and the viewer is just forced to hang suspended in this moment of complete tension. So whether that’s grainy black and white, or a tightly cropped long lens shot, or a big color/wide-angle shot, I’m really looking for the action and tension.
Most memorable photoshoot?
>> I shot the Sahara Marathon in 2001 in Algeria. I rode 26 miles in the back of a LandCruiser with a reporting team from Le Monde (French Newspaper). We exchanged pocket knives and smiled a lot at each other, since they didn’t speak English and I don’t speak French. I also met the real-life Hunter “Patch” Adams, who was there providing humanitarian/medical aid to the refugee camp we stayed in.
>>So much of my life is striving and trying to force things to happen, working against nature to produce order from chaos. Photography actually forces me to slow down and engage with the world around me and simply observe it as it is—on it’s own terms. Photography has taken me to places I normally would not have the opportunity to go—behind the bucking chutes at a rodeo is a great example! Photography always gives me the best seat in the house, either right in the action or behind the scenes. It’s an “all-access pass” to life!
