Fort McDowell Orme Dam Victory Days
Each November, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation in Arizona celebrates their 1981 victory over the federal government, who proposed to construct the Orme Dam at the confluence of the Verde and Salt Rivers. The Rodeo grounds are located at: Beeline Highway (Hwy. 87) and Fort McDowell Road, Fort McDowell, AZ. In my experience, the Fort McDowell Rodeo grounds are the very best rodeo venue I have encountered. Great shooting locations abound from just about anywhere in the “uncovered” bleachers to the east end near the VIP tent. Last year, I used my Tamron 18-400mm and Tamron 150-600mm with very good results. A tripod or monopod might be useful in the bleachers. I photographed all three days and arrived very early in the AM in order to shoot the “slack” sessions when the crowd was very sparse and I could wander around. Slack sessions are qualifying rounds of all events. Since you see the full range of contestants in each of the events, you have loads of opportunities to shoot from various locations and perspectives. As a matter of courtesy, you should always ask permission before taking photos of costume attired Indians. WARNING: wear a good ear and neck covering hat because there is no cover. A light jacket or sweater might also be useful. If you arrive early, you can usually park within easy walking distance from your car. $5 parking fee with free admission to all events Bring your own chairs, but I always end up leaving them in the truck. Here is a link to their website which may provide more information. I was not thrilled by the Powwow because it was under cover of a tent where lighting wasn’t that good and it was crowded. https://nativeamerica.travel/experiences/fort-mcdowell-orme-dam-victory-days-pow-wow Always ask permission when photographing a Native American. As mentioned above, there are many advantageous locations to shoot from. My favorite location is the one shown in the last photo above. I am especially like my Tamron 18-400mm; I believe is
