Rodeo cowboy gets bucked off under the setting sun.
Biography: A lifelong horseman, I started taking pictures of the horses I was breeding for sales and stallion ads. Soon I became enamored of the visual art of the magnificent and glorious spirits, and have spent the past 13 years studying photography as a skill and equine photography as a passion.
In the beginning I focused on pretty and accurate portraits and action shots of horses to hone my photographic skills. A few years ago, I started branching out into a more artistic style and a wider ranch of subjects. Nothing satisfies me more than capturing the essence and beauty of my photographic subject.
