A Photographic Series by Robb Long
This was so much fun. I watched a bit of the action when the guys came outta the gates but wanted to see what happens behind the scenes. I started talking with the riders that were in a fenced in area with all their saddles, boots, hats, rope and extra pairs of dirt stained jeans sitting around. I started shooting my photos, mainly from the hip so I got some real good decisive moments. While most photographers were out capturing peak action of the guys actually riding, while I was behind the scenes capturing what these guys are all about, the rituals they go through before saddling up, the ups and downs from a good or bad ride and the bond they all share with one another as riders.
