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.
