These are photos of a branding of about 300 calves at the historic ZX Ranch in eastern Oregon. Every year nearly 10,000 calves are branded. In addition to the photos, there is a writeup on each of the crew members..where they came from, how long they've worked for the ZX, and, in several cases, where they are now.
I travel extensively throughout eastern Oregon, northern Nevada, and northern California documenting the people who still live the old Great Basin buckaroo lifestyle. So far my collection of photos is at about 100,000 and growing nearly every weekend as I travel to ranches and ranch rodeos throughout the region. You can see them all on my website.
