This was at Great Western, which is half way between Ararat and Stawell in Victoria. They have a rodeo every year on Good Friday and I went there specifically with a shot kind of like this in mind. I sat there in the dirt and dust by the railing with my lens inches from the bulls and horses whizzing past for hours, legs cramping, trying to keep my sensor dust free, and I shot everything I could, hoping for the best. I chose this one because I liked the composition of the horse going right and the rider left into open space, the horse being completely off the ground and the rider having his foot in the stirrup and his tongue out - but I didn’t like the background because it was too busy and they didn’t stand out enough, hence the partial black and white. It took about three hours in photoshop to get the fine detail I wanted (the horse’s mane was the worst) but I think it was worth it. The first person ever to buy this print was a chiropractor and it now hangs in her waiting room. Similar image here

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).

The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.

The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.

If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
