The queens in Corvallis, OR, 2013
I got to hang out with a gaggle of rodeo queens and shoot some guns  while on assignment. Now who can say that? I love my job. I actually hate shooting guns though. It was only the second time in my life I held a gun in my hand and it just makes me so uncomfortable.

Nicole Schrock, Corvallis, OR, 2013
Nicole Schrock, Miss Rodeo Oregon, was the main subject for the Rodeo Queens story. She and her family welcomed us into their home and could not have been more kind and generous. Here Nicole sits in her badass teal pick-up truck at the home ranch.

Miss Rodeo Washington, Pendleton, OR, 2013
So excited to finally share the Rodeo Queens story I’ve been working on the past year. Originally an assignment for Cosmo, published in short form this summer, this project has turned into a collaborative adventure with the awesome writer Kelly Williams Brown. We had so much material from multiple trips out west and wanted to be able to share the story in our own way.

Carla, 2014
Carla was my Phoot Camp buddy this year in Joshua Tree. Boy did I luck out! She was so generous with her time and collaborative and just all around awesome to get to know. 
This is the only image I’ve edited so far. Not by choice, but sometimes it’s nice to step away from a shoot and only pick it back up months later, right? Will probably see things differently then.
