As a photographer I wanted to challenge myself and One of the things I wanted to add is at least one out of state barrel racing event.
This year we (my booth assistant) and myself made the trip to Topeka Kansas to photograph for MR Barrel Productions. This was my first trip up to Kansas to photograph and my first time to work with this promoter.
The arena personnel made sure we had everything we needed, No extension cords were pulled out and drug all over the arena, they had outlets that came down from the ceiling and dropped down on a pulley which sure made it easy for me to set up lights and not have to worry about taping cords to the concrete.
Last year I flew to Oregon and wanted to go back, but the more I thought about it the more I didn't want to have to worry about flying all my gear back up there. So this year we opted to drive (7 hours to Topeka) and I am glad we made the drive.
The competition was fierce and I was able to make a lot of new friends on this journey.
Setting goals and working to accomplish them is one of the most satisfying things for me as a photographer. On to the next goal
