I had the chance to photograph a cowboy a few nights ago. I love photographing everything about the country and these guys seem to be the figure head of that society. John was once a horse trainer and roper. He makes a great subject. You can see the weathered and rustic look in his skin.
In this type of image I chose to go with a monochromatic look to the images. These images are not about the color but rather about the line, shape and textures. This is also about the story told. All of the elements of composition pull you into his eyes to develop the cowboys story for yourself.
