Ranch Memories PhotographyTaken at the close of the day. A thunderstorm was clearing out as the sun reflected its colors.
I had been working for the Hunewill Ranch for about five years before I started the photography program. My job then was that of a ranch hand as well as a wrangler for the guests that came to the ranch. I had always loved this beautiful country but looked at it as “a beautiful place to work”. After starting the photography program one of my greatest concerns was with the fact that 70% of the guests return each year and how was I going to bring them something different in my photography each year. As I tacked another aspect to my job, photography, I found that the country and the people in it unlocked a beauty I had never seen until I started looking through the eyes of a photographer. Now the challenge is not how to be different but discovering new ways of letting those who view my work to see it how I saw it. Each day Mother Nature makes it different with the sunrises, sunsets, cloud formations, and all their colors while the people make the difference with their different expressions, change in age as the little buckaroos grow to be young cowboys and cowgirls. Capturing the joy of moms and dads watching or joining their little buckaroos ride across this beautiful land.
What a Great Job this is!
