Odysseyo - Lagoon
Another shot from Cavalia's Odysseyo. There was a pool that just appears out of the ground for part of the performance! It's incredible!
Odysseyo- Magic
Hi all! Long time no see! A while ago I had the opportunity to photograph a performance of Cavalia's Odysseyo, which is like Circ Du Soleil with horses! It was absolutely incredible! I'll be sharing a few of my favorite images here, so stay tuned for more! :D
  • Drinking: Cherry coke...what else?
I've has a few people message me about using my work for various things recently and realized that some DA weirdness has made my previous Rules & FAQ entry unreadable. It needed updating anyway so here we go:

Q: Can I use your photo as a pose reference for my character/drawing/painting?

A: Personal Use: Absolutely - WITH PERMISSION. Please contact me prior to starting your artwork about using the image as a base for your drawing. Typically I just want to know who is using my work as reference & see the finished result :)

Commercial Use: Contact me privately for any commercial use inquiries including reselling of the finished artwork, use in logos etc etc  email: phone: 360-265-6854

Q: Can I use your photo in a photo manipulation/collage?

A: NO. I do not allow my images to be edited or manipulated by anyone but me. Sorry.

Q: Can I use your photo in a SIM game like Howrse?

A: Nope, sorry.

Q: I hate your rodeo pictures! It's so awful! I hope you die!

A: Comments like this will be marked as spam and ignored, so please don't bother posting them. I get that there is a TON of missinformation and even outright lies about rodeo out there (NO the flank strap is NOT wrapped around their testicles), but I've come to a point where, let's face it, I'm OLD for DA, and I have neither the time or the desire to argue with kids who have never been within a thousand miles of a rodeo, when I have attended hundreds and see with my own eyes the good care the animals receive.

If you want to see some of my behind the scenes photos of rodeo animals who tell the REAL story, check out my gallery The Hidden Life of Broncos…

I discovered the pictures you took at the Helix Rodeo, and enjoyed watching them. I was there in 2010 and 2011. We may have been "neighbors" for a couple of hours standing along the arena fence with our cameras!

Love, love, love your rodeo pictures. Consider yourself watched, pardner! Maybe I can talk to you and get some tips for my own photographing of these critters. I'd love getting shots like you do ;)
