Bull Rider at the Cody Night Rodeo. Cody, Wyoming
The theme for the International League of Conservation Photographers September newsletter is “engage” and I’m the photographer of the month. My Absaroka-Beartooth Front Tripods In The Mud partnership with Greater Yellowstone Coalition is also featured. I’m proud to be an ILCP member and it’s an honor to be recognized for my Western conservation work.
* About the rodeo image – I had a great time photographing nature for the new Absaroka Campaign and shooting the rodeo was a riot! First, Tim Kellogg, rodeo cowboy, rancher, and the Meeteetse Chocolatierschooled me about rodeo and how well the rodeo stock is cared for. Then, Barbara Cozzens at GYC got me a press pass to photograph the rodeo. I used to go to rodeos when I lived in Laramie, but getting right down at arena level is a whole different ballgame. I had a lot of fun challenging myself with action and low light, and watching the rodeo athletes up close was pretty awesome.
