The cowboy photo that appears on cover of the fall 2017 issue, which also includes many more of my photos inside. This particular photo is of Mike Kellam, of Havre, Montana. It was taken a few years back on his family's ranch during the branding season. Mike once asked me why I didn't make more photos of him. I told him he often wore clothes that was too contemporary for my liking. On this day Mike decided to dress a tad more plain and it made all the difference.
