The Charreada, predecessor to the American Rodeo.

 

What began as a curious look into a sport I was unfamiliar with became a fascinating journey into the world of the Charro, a proud culture filled with ordinary Mexican Americans who suit up on the weekends to keep their tradition alive. The time and money spent perfecting these skills handed down from 100 years ago is an incredible spectacle to behold. It’s a dangerous sport and the rewards are often little or nothing with men commonly getting injured.

 

Tradition can be a good enough reason to participate in something but there is a shared importance and comfort here that I think helps these dedicated horsemen stay connected to each other and to a heritage that must seem far away.

 

This work has been recognized by National Geographic and has won awards with The Smithsonian and The Creative Quarterly.

Husband, father, friend and photographer. I’ve traveled the world for clients like Sony, John Deere, Aflac, Boeing, GM, FORBES, Vanity Fair, INC and others. My personal work is what excites me the most though and how I spend much of my free time.
