A Cowboy Photoshoot

Pin It
If it is a horse: ride it, if it is a fence: fix it, if she is a lady: treat her like a queen.


If you get thrown from a horse you have to get up and get back on, unless you landed on a cactus; then you have to roll around and scream in pain.


Always drink upstream from the herd...and if you see a rope laying in the yard, be careful picking it up, there’s probably a horse on the other end.



Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat. 


Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s critical to know what it was.


Talk slow, talk low, and don’t talk too much – John Wayne 


Don’t go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path. . . and leave a trail.


Riding: the art of keeping the horse between you and the ground.


If you’re riding a high horse there’s no way to get down gracefully.


You can take the boy out of country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.

What a great photoshoot!
You've captured the essence of the cowboy lifestyle and your subject epitomized it.
Well done!
(As usual...)

These are awesome! I have been waiting to see them since I knew they had been taken. He is such a handsome kid and you captured him fantastically in all his cowboy glory.

It's called, "Cowboy up".

These are great Jason. I am always amazed at what you can do with a camera. I've been waiting for you to put these up. :D

LOL! I made a comment about one of the photos, how Mr. B has always had that look since he was little and he said, "That's my smolder".......

YEP...I can attest to all that first hand.
Married to a cowboy now for almost 3 years.
It's a life and mentality all of its own.
who was the cute cowboy in these photos..??

Love the sayings as much as the pictures! Good job.

These are the kinds of settings I found in Texas when I was sent out on assignment. Same town, those settings no longer exist. The cowboy thing is an endangered species =- thus the need for a smolder.

I want to do a photo shoot so bad!!

I don't suppose you'd like to road trip to Nebraska to do my daughter's senior photos with her horse?
No?
Well, you can't blame me for asking.

I love the photos, but I especially LOVE the quotes! A lot of them really made me think, and more than anything I want to go horseback riding now!

What is it about the subject-walking-away photos that look so great?
