Jackson has no shortage of brave young boys lining up to ride on the back of 1,000 pound bulls.
I took some portraits this week to add to my West project. I went a little moodier and a little darker to reflect the intense characters I was photographing.
While I was in Wyoming I visited Red Rock Ranch. It was about 1 hour down a dirt road off the freeway with no cell phone reception so I was forced to use a good old fashioned real life map. Obviously I got totally lost and ended up driving 30 minutes in the wrong direction.
Once I arrived Douglas who owns the ranch introduced me to everyone where I was pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of young, good looking cowboys and cowgirls to photograph.
I met Chandler in Jackson Hole, Wyoming working in a fancy hotel. I asked if he knew any cowboys I could shoot and he told me "Your looking at one". So the next afternoon I met him and his best mate TJ at the rodeo grounds and took some pictures of them hanging out.
