I went to my first Rodeo recently at the Geelong Showgrounds where I was lucky enough to meet Rodeo photographer Keith French, and a nicer man you will not meet. He was kind enough to lend me a spare battery (I wasn’t very well prepared), and also, once it got dark and I knew my 100-400 wouldn’t cope with the shocking light, he offered me the use of his 70-200 2.8 ~ now how many event photographers do you know who would do that for a complete stranger?!

So without further ado, here is the Geelong Rodeo 2009 ....as seen by me
