Thanks for stopping by my published writing and photography page. I will be working to keep it up to date with my current published writing and photos, as well as sprinkling in things that have been published back a little further in time.

I also have an ebook of short fiction, a novella, and cowboy poetry all set in the American West. It is titled Facing West and you can find it on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble for $2.99. I also sell it personally as an emailed PDF through Paypal for just $2.00. Just contact me with a message if you are interested in purchasing a PDF version from me.

Most of all, I appreciate you spending time to look around this page. I hope you enjoy the items in here as much as I enjoyed creating them. God bless and have a great day. ~ Lincoln

This is a recent interview I did with Colorado barrel racer Shali Lord, who currently sits near the top of the world rankings for 2019. It is found in The Wrangler Horse and Rodeo News magazine. The link included should take you directly to the online article. If not, it can be found on page 37 of the online magazine.

Even if the camera you have is not an expensive one, you can still get more out of it. If there are more settings than just fully automatic, use them.

One option is a setting that is often termed "shutter priority." You can use that to set the shutter speed YOU want for whatever you are shooting, versus the camera choosing it for you. Do you want to freeze action? Set the shutter speed higher, choosing at least 1/500th of a second or faster. If you have plenty of light (especially daylight), then set it for 1/1000th of a second or faster. That can freeze very fast action, like where you can start seeing individual water droplets from a splash around a swimmer. If you wish to have some motion blur on action shots, slow the shutter speed down to 1/200th of a second or slower (preferably slower if you have a tripod or monopod or can lean against something to steady yourself and the camera - like 1/100th of a second or slower). Having a portion of the action stopped and in focus, while the rest of the action is blurred (like a rider and horse's head being sharp while the horse's legs are blurred when it is running), can create an artistic effect.

There are other options to use, as well. Be sure to explore everything your camera can offer. Read the manual! Photography is about more than just the camera. You might just find you have the eye of a photographer.

Here are a few photos I took during my coverage of the nighttime championship round of rodeo action at the 2019 Greeley Stampede in Greeley, CO on July 03, 2019. The Greeley Stampede is a large outdoor rodeo with a total purse in 2019 of $333,349.00. A number of the photos will be used for a photo spread in the upcoming (July 08) print edition of The Fence Post magazine.


I just uploaded this into my Fine Art Gallery (on Fine Art America). I took this shot of world-famous Aussie horseman, Dan James, during a competition at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, CO (January 2019). It was one of those rare moments that energize me all over again about photography. The link takes you to my gallery, but I am not trying to sell you anything. I just love this image and wanted to share it. Also, Dan James is a great guy and loves Jesus. I was able to sit down for an interview with him during the stock show and had a good time talking with him.
