When I first arrived in Houston 20+ years ago, I was unaware of the "season" as I came to call it that is the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. I wondered what the buzz was all about in regards to a rodeo. Having lived in Texas for many years, I had attended a rodeo or two, but nothing like what Houston puts together!
It starts with trail riders arriving from all over the country, a World Championship BBQ cook off, followed by concerts, livestock shows, and many other events too numerous mention.
For a photographer, the opportunities are limitless; whether you enjoy shooting people, animals, "color", action...it is all there!
