2018 Arabian Horse Show (8:00 AM MST)
February 15-25 {Event runs several days} Since 1955 the Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show has set the pace in the Arabian horse world. The first show was held at the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show was a first class show from the very first day. Presently the horse show is held at West World. See details On their website, you will find all sorts of information on daily classes and events. Norma Walsh is our "go to" horse woman for additional information regarding this amazing show. Events usually start around 8:00AM.  The Equidome is a low light situation and will require a high ISO. Some of the outdoors arenas are open and some are covered. The covered arenas are low light but you have bright light coming in from the open sides. In addition to the class events, there are lots of photogenic opportunities of preparation in and around the barns, people riding or exercising, etc. delete

March 8, 2018 COMPETITION OPEN & CLOSING DATES/TIMES

Competition Types: Open and Assigned Still Life A still life is defined as a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.). A still life gives the artist more freedom in arranging elements within a composition than do photographs of other types of subjects such as landscapes or portraiture. delete

Apache Junction Rodeo (12:00 PM MST)
THIS IS A THREE DAY EVENT: FEBRUARY 23-25, 2018 NOTE: Be advised, Apache Junction has apparently fallen into the Twilight Zone because the Google Map location below has the location about a mile east of the actual location.

The classic 8 Events include, Bareback, Calf Roping, Saddle Bronc, Steer Wrestling, Ladies Breakaway Roping, Barrel Racing, Team Roping and the crowd favorite, Bull Riding. This Rodeo Event is considered one of the finest in the Southwest. Mutton Bustin’ is the last event on Sunday, February 25th. Entry fee is $10 or paid ticket stub from the rodeo for Sunday only.

Casa Grande Cactus Flyin (8:00 AM MST)
THIS IS A TWO DAY EVENT: MARCH 2-3, 2018 NOTE: The Google Map location below is not quite right. The airport is just north of the map location. Cactus Fly-In is the premier event for antique airplanes in Arizona. Come check out a host of unique aircraft, learn something new during forum presentations, and mingle with folks who enjoy history and the machines that flew us to the present! For airplane photographers, this is an outstanding photo venue. Get there early to see some old birds come flying in. From beautiful Stearmans in authentic colors to some old war birds such as Ryan PT22s, T-6s, T-28s,  and who knows maybe a Bearcat or lovely Fifi, a genuine B-29. Then there are some old Pipers and Cessnas. Equipment: Tripod probably not necessary, I shoot hand-held mostly. I usually shoot with my Tamron 18-400mm, but will also have my Nikon 10.5mm fisheye in my pocket. For flying aircraft, you will want to shoot Shutter Priority and set your shutter speed around 1/250 sec. This will cause the propellers to blur rather than stop the action and make the airplane look like it is falling out of the sky.  Fee: $10 delete
