I shot the sheriff

I travelled through the northwestern states to take these portraits of county sheriffs in mostly remote areas. I hope to convey the romance I associate with this century old institution. The sheriff is the good guy.


I went to a night rodeo in Idaho to achieve these images of isolating the bronco/bull and rider from it's environment. The rider was followed by very powerful strobe lighting. Because of recycling time I only had one or two takes per ride before the rider was thrown off or reached his 8 seconds.
