More from the Evergreen Rodeo

Last night was a lot of fun. It was also a lot of work. I was primarily shooting for the sports section which means that my focus was on the riders and a good action shot to fill the page. That didn’t mean that I couldn’t shoot a couple of good feature shots if I wanted, it just meant that they might not run. I forgot how much ritual there is behind the chutes. I really tried to work that as much as I could. I ran into a fellow photog named Matt McClain, formerly of the Rocky Mountain News. I am a big fan of his work. He’s a really nice guy, has a great eye and always makes me say to myself “damn, that’s a good shot. Why didn’t I have that?” The following aren’t in any particular order. They are just images that jumped out at me when I was looking through last nights take. Anyway, I am back at the rodeo today starting around 1pm. I’ll be the guy looking out of place.
