Beautiful evening light, cowboy hats, twang and mud, subliminally brought out my native Texan side as I too, with camera in hand, was having fun with the boys. This August, I was fortunate to shoot two rodeo assignments in Fayette County: the Fayette County Fair and the Bullskin Township Fair. The guys were gentlemen to attendees, yet cursed, taunted and spit at their bull foes. Personally, I didn't have much interest in shooting the actual riding because the scenes beside the sport itself were so brilliant. That is what I love most about sports photography: the story around the game.
