As I raise my camera to eye level I pause, temporarily and existentially lost in a moment, where in that brief second between seeing my subject in the viewfinder and pressing the shutter of my camera, I begin to understand who I am photographing. In that moment, it wasn’t a rancher, a photographer, assistant, and some lights. It was just a hard-working and passionate rancher lost in the beauty and serenity of his cows grazing the landscape.
