The Cowboys of Santa Ynez

I'm at my first branding on a working ranch.


I'm standing in the middle of a sea of dust, cattle, horses, cowboys, ropes flying past my head, and searing smoke from branding irons filling my nose. All I can think is- this is AMAZING. I was thrilled to have been invited to be a part of this experience! I had brought my camera with me just in case, and once I picked it up, I couldn't set it down. I knew I was hooked. For the next few years through photographing every aspect of the working cowboy and cattle ranch life, I learned a lot of lessons about life in general.

Sometimes we have a tendency to get so disconnected from the beauty of being in the moment.
