With the 2016 SDRA Finals coming to a close, I am happy to say I made it through my first gig as the official rodeo photographer! Although we had to iron out a few kinks throughout the weekend, I would say it was a success and a learning experience at that! I can not thank the SDRA committee enough for allowing me this opportunity in hopes that it opens doors in the near future! Although the rodeo aspect didn't go as I had planned, there's always another year and I am blessed to simply be in attendance! I have a huge passion for the sport of rodeo and greatly enjoy capturing the moments. I could not pursue these dreams without the help of my right hand man Allen, who is always there for whatever I made need. Whether it be getting my horses ready and warmed up, or picking up my camera to shoot while I complete. I also have the most amazing support system of friends and family who are always there to lend a helping hand, thank you! Last but not least, I would like to extend a big thank you out to all of the contestants, I was honored to shoot the SDRA Finals and hope to see you down the rodeo trail!
