Gymkhana – Willits Frontier Days Photographer

Written by Morgan Bellinger on July 15th, 2010

I went up to Willits a few weeks ago to shoot a Gymkhana, a rodeo event.

This is the daughter of my former boss at the Wente Scout Reservation and her close friend.

The light here in this small town is really nice.

I love how shooting into the sun fits with a rodeo.

The textures and dust at these events are really terrific to photograph and challenging to do well.

This is one of my favorite portraits in a while.

A commemorative Willits Frontier Days belt buckle, and a prize ribbon.
