Documentary Photography of Denver’s Stock Show

The 110th National Western Stock Show (NWSS) held here in Denver, has concluded for the year.  I spent most of the show in the historic yards again, adding to my documentary photography project set there.  Last year my focus was portraiture. This year I created reportage style documentary photographs of “In The Yards”.

I hope to post one photograph from this new collection of photographs every few days.  Below is the first, a photograph of Klay leading a bull to get some exercise as the sun sets.

Photographs of Wild Horses

I recently had the opportunity to photograph wild horses adopted and now living near Longmont, CO & under the care of the BLM in Cañon City, Colorado.  The horses are, of course, beautiful, amazing and large.  Below are a few of the photographs I created focusing on details that I found both beautiful and indicative of their intrinsic wild spirit.
