The images I photograph reflect scenes of traditional cowboy culture in the American west, the environment in which I was raised. Most of the images I shoot are at local rodeos in Central California within driving distance of Modesto where I reside.
I also photograph cattle ranching traditions and conventions on occasion when invited.
Besides these two genres, street photography is my focus when traveling internationally.
