The Jr. NFR last week was an action packed event at Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas. One of our favorite aspects to shoot at a rodeo or any other event, are the little moments that go on behind the scenes. The rodeo lifestyle is something that makes photographing these events that much more fun. Human nature, we are first attracted by the glitz and glamour… the action. Give yourself time to see what makes up this exciting sport and that is where the love of rodeo is born. Behind the scenes we see the relationships between the competitors and their equine partners, the parents and coaches that help guide their rodeo journey, the friendships that will last for a lifetime with fellow competitors and travel partners who they see often while training and at rodeo events around the country. These are the golden nuggets that make up this western lifestyle. The ‘yes ma’am’ and ‘yes sir’, the simple gesture of a tip of the hat or a hand shake, the polite respect for one another can be seen and felt throughout the arena.
Here are our favorite lifestyle moments from the 2021 Jr. NFR…enjoy!
