Another year for the California Rodeo Salinas and I'm overdue for a photo blog update.
The photo above is one of my favorite lit portraits in all of my career. We contacted this local cowboy for a photo session for the cover the current Monterey County Weekly and this is one of the pictures I shot. Great subject and great location.
