Rodeo Photo Gallery

The annual Rodeo of the Ozarks parade was held over the July 4 weekend at Parson Stadium in Springdale. This is possibly one of my favorite events to shoot all year, despite my intense fear of horses. This year, I really tried to focus on using the evening light streaming into the stadium. It provides for such a moody image, full of bold colors.


I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
