Iron Cowboy

Rodeo has got to be one of my favorite sports to shoot and there is no rodeo event more hyped up than bullriding. It’s fast, and dangerous and not unlike NASCAR, the fans are watching for the big wrecks. I shot PBR’s Iron Cowboy event Saturday at AT&T Stadium. It was amazing and fun. If you’re wondering about the technical feats behind shooting rodeo, it can vary widely depending on the venue. Most rodeo arenas are old and the lighting is just good enough to not trip over small dogs and children. Since the bulls are always at the end of the night, this event can be very tricky to shoot. You need fast glass, and a high ISO and even then you will have a hard time. However at AT&T, I might as well have been shooting in the daytime.
