For those of you who are new here, a few years back I produced a long form story about ‘The American Cowboy’ (click here to read it). I was afforded the opportunity to saddle up with a few true working cowboys and head up into the mountains high above Crested Butte to bring a thousand head of cattle back to the valley. This is one of the photos that never made it into the story. I still like it though.
Photographer’s Note – When I’m working on a ranch or on the back of a moto photographing a bike race, I’m using a custom system of ThinkTank products I have pieced together. I use their Belly Dancer harness (out of production so I bought 3 of them), skin systems modules and a holster to carry most everything I need. I actually use this system when I’m traveling. It packs down super light and is comfortable to wear.
