Rodeo Photography

2021 CWWR Photographer

We are pleased to announce that we feel fortunate to have co-photographers lined up for the 2021 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo season from June 3rd through August 19th. Tenley Steinke and Paula Mayer will be taking the reins of photographer for this summer.

It has been the goal of CWWR to work with up and coming photographers that are getting their career started or attending college or trade school with the goal of making photography a part of their career and worklife. We have worked with CMC in the past as well as just getting the word out by social media. If you or someone you know of might be interested in being the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo photographer for a future season/s, don't hesitate to reach out and contact Mike Kennedy, CWWRA Board President at 970-379-3907 or [email protected]

There is compensation and we provide free pizza and drinks each week to rodeo staff and volunteers. Our goal is to provide experience and help a student or beginning photographer build their portfolio. However, we would also consider a photographer who just wants to have some fun and get some great shots at the rodeo with a minimum compensation. As a non-profit we strive to provide scholarships and provide funding to charitable causes so we are limited in what we can pay a photographer and still contribute to worthwhile causes and in support of youth. Photos will be used on facebook and on the CWWR website. You are encouraged to offer your photos for sale and your contact info will be available on our website. If you fit either of these categories and and are interested in being a future CWWR photographer please give us a shout.

Unfortunately we do not have photos for some of the earlier 2015 rodeos and some of the earlier photos are of lesser quality. We have the issue resolved now. Check back during the rodeo season for weekly galleries posted throughout the summer. Enjoy!
