Welcome to my SmugMug web page. Photography has been my passion for more than 60 years, most likely inherited from my Mom who took photographs of our family with an old Kodak camera. I was born in New Mexico and lived in small towns in northeastern New Mexico for more than 20 years until moving to California after serving in the U. S. Air Force during the Korean War. For the past 50 years, I have lived in Southern California, and currently live in Brawley, California a major farming area located about 40 miles from the Mexico border and 60 miles east of Yuma, Arizona. The proximity to the Anza Borrego State Park and the Glamis Sand Dunes provides a perfect opportunity to capture the beauty of desert landscapes.

Folders contain several galleries, simply double click on either Landscapes, Sports, or CHSRA District Event and Galleries will be displayed. The photos in my SmugMug are available to print in various sizes through a high quality printing lab based in California offering a wide variety of printing choices at reasonable prices. To choose a print, select the photo from the thumbnail images and then a large photo image appears on the right side, then click "Buy" to make your choice of the photo or gallery. The ordering system is simple and easy to use and the print lab offers guaranteed quality, low cost shipping and quick delivery. Don't worry the Bill Gates Photography watermark will not print on your photo selection.

The photographs of California High School Rodeo depict District 8 contestants competing at the Brawley Cattle Call arena. Not all of the events appear in the galleries. The most recent event was on January 17 and 18, 2015 and those galleries were events on Sunday morning, January 18th. Hope you enjoy seeing these high school rodeo events, a great group of students contestants, parents, and friends participating together.

Thanks for visiting my web page.
