Airborne Saddle Bronc – Bozeman, Montana, Instagram post date: 05-09-2017

Photo taken at: Bozeman, Montana

Photo Caption: A saddle bronc continues to get airborne after it had dumped it’s rider at a roundup in Bozeman, Montana.
A shutter speed of 1/3200s completely froze all of the action for me, manually focused with my @sigmaphoto 150-600mm lens on my Sony a7R camera. .
I used Luminar from @macphun to create the styling for this photo.

Photo taken at: Bozeman, Montana

Photo Caption: “Here’s Two Ewe” – Isn’t everyone just about ready for spring already? I photographed these 2 sheep in Bozeman, Montana this past Christmas Day following a snowstorm during some frigid temperatures. .
Well cold for me – looks like these 2 were pretty warm in their wool jackets ?

Golden Power, Instagram post date: 02-01-2017

Bozeman, Montana, Instagram post date:

Photo taken at: Bozeman, Montana

Photo Caption: “Golden Power”
I have been photographing more and more rodeos & horses as I continue to challenge myself photographically. This was photographed at a rodeo in Bozeman, Montana the other summer.

I always try to look for something different and I found it in this photo. The sun was setting and the dust being kicked up from the horses was creating a stunning golden backlight.
This team of Belgian Draft horses were circling the rodeo grounds carrying the American Flag during opening ceremonies. I used my 600mm lens and focused on their powerful hooves, capturing the power and intensity I felt.
