The Reno Rodeo

After 10 days the Reno Rodeo finished on Saturday. I took photos for five out of the 10 days and picking my favorites was a challenge. Shooting this was a completely different experience than I’ve had before, but I liked it. Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Reno Rodeo Work Day

With the Reno Rodeo starting today I figured I should post some photos of the prep work. The rodeo was one of the assignments I was the most excited about when I found out I got the internship earlier this year.

I’m going to be shooting it on and off for about the next week. I’ll do one large update with all those photos when the rodeo is over.

The work Day took place on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at the Reno Rodeo Area.

Volunteers help prepare the Reno Rodeo Arena for use.
