Calgary Stampede Favourites

A rider crashes into the ground after being bucked off at the 2010 Calgary Stampede.

Only 67 days to the start of the 100th Calgary Stampede.    With this year being the centennial anniversary for the Stampede, the rodeo, and all of the events in general,  should be fantastic.  I have a lot of fun as a spectator, a fan and a photographer at the rodeo.  Great action and amazing performances by the animals and the athletes.  I’m already getting excited about getting down to the grounds and covering the Stampede again this year.

These images are from the past couple of years and include a selection of my favourites.  You can click on this link or any of the images to go to the full gallery.

I will be displaying a couple of prints in the Western Showcase again this year and am planning to shoot the rodeo for the third straight year.  I hope to add a few to this collection this year.
