It amazes me how fast an image can reach the masses. Enjoy!

After over a month and a half hiatus from photographing baseball I returned to the mound with the Padres at Dodgers the Saturday after Friday the 13th. Enjoy!
Kelly Kulick during the Bowling’s US Women’s Open 2012 under the Reno Arch at in Reno, NV.
Reno just keeps on giving and giving (just don’t gamble in a casino). I photographed the Bowling Proprietors Association of America (BPAA) biggest event of the year. I had very good access (ALL ACCESS PASS!) and was for the most part able to find unique shooting postions (don’t get in the way of ESPN). The event started at 7pm and ended around 10pm. I wish there was a better sunset but you can’t control everything. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy!
Kash Koester during Steer Wrestling at the Reno Rodeo “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West” at The Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center in Reno, NV.
Had one of the best times photographing The Reno Rodeo “The “Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West!” It was great to go back to Reno to see both my photo and non-photo friends. Up to this point I had never photograph let alone been to a Rodeo. One thing that was a surprise to me is the dress code (see photo below), Jeans, Shirt, Big Belt Buckle and of course a 5 gallon hat. Here are some of my favorites from a great weekend. Enjoy!
