Cowboys Riding Galloping Horses

This photo of a cowboy riding a galloping horse over a rough and rocky terrain is a concept stock image illustrating a wide variety of ideas including challenge, change, speed and skill. The dark storm clouds overhead represent both challenge and change. The harsh terrain further contributes to the challenge aspect of the picture. That terrain can, for example represent the market conditions of a business while the storm clouds can show disruptive technology and other market interrupters. The cowboy himself represents the rugged individualist skillful in handling horses and cattle and tough as nails even in the harshest of conditions. 

Galloping Horse Photos For Advertising

This galloping horse image was created for advertising, editorial and promotional uses.It can easily be cropped to all formats including square, vertical and horizontal with plenty of copy space. The cowboy's red shirt adds an important point of color and the image is rich with texture and light. The cowboy is riding fast towards the clearing skies which makes the image an optimistic one about opportunity and even success. This can also be an image about journeys and the way forward. Too, as the horse and rider form a team, the concept of teamwork is not only applicable, but core to the entire image!

Running Horses And Concept Stock Photography

To create this running horse image for concept stock photo uses I began by capturing the horse at a gallop and being ridden by a friend of mine. She, however, was riding "English" I wanted this image to be of a cowboy.  Also, she was riding in a corral whereas I wanted more of an open ranger and dramatic environment. I rented a Western style saddle and photographed it in my studio. Later I photographed myself (using the self-time on my Nikon D800) while standing in a pose that would work for riding. I used Photoshop to replace the English saddle with the Western saddle and then place myself on the horse as the rider. Next I stripped out the horse (including me as the cowboy) and pasted it into a landscape image I photographed on the Yemeni island of Socotra. Finally I added the clearing storm clouds from a shoot I did in Colorado. So there you have it...a cowboy galloping on horseback across the island of Socotra under a stormy Colorado sky!
