An actual real cowboy, that is, part of a dying breed. I’m not a real cowboy, I just play one on TV.
He was patriarch of a family of horsewomen that run a stables up in the mountains; when we do horseback riding tours we take them up to his family’s stables. Sadly he died this Summer and I hardly knew him or got to speak with him.
This is the outtake, the horse was less cooperative than the human. The more I look at these the more I think that I should print them in a landscape orientation and cut off the top/bottom, they’ll be better framed that way. I would have done it in camera but I wanted to shoot fast and let the guy get on with his day.
I went back and reviewed my work over the last few years and found several posts with pictures shot up at the stables. Here they are:
