If you’ve been around here for a while, you might remember my Wrangler National Finals Rodeo running diary from 2011. After being banned last year (politics!) I recently was approved for credentials for this year’s “Super Bowl of Rodeo”. I have two magazine clients, and a handful of commercial clients, and will be in limbo in the desert for 10 days shooting the best cowboys, cowgirls, and livestock in the world.
Two months out I have already started preparing (studying my pictures from last time and creating code replacements for captions). I’m thinking about doing another diary this year, but I want to put it up for discussion first. I’m happy to share my stories, but since we preach thought and preparation over and over again, I want to hear questions you have about how to planning, traveling, deciding how and what to shoot, workflow, delivery, and anything else relevant. What would you want to know if you were getting ready for a shoot like this?
