About Jerry Long
Since 2015 I have been traveling the United States while working in the rodeo arena. I worked as a producer/cameraperson for the Professional Bull Riders on both the "up and comers" Velocity Tour and the "Premiere" Unleash the Beast Tour. Those shows show up on the PlutoTV's Ridepass and CBS Sports Network and CBS Network channels.
All that work takes place on the weekends, so during the weekdays I travel like a high plains drifter, looking for beautiful vistas and undiscovered, backroads scenery. These photographs have turned into a calendar since 2016, which is now offered for sale to the public on this website.
In 2015 I attended my first USAFL Nationals and have been hooked ever since. I always wanted to shoot action sports so my stumbling up footy was the perfect match.
Since starting in 1980 in television my career has taken me many places with many more places to visit in the future. Thanks for following along and enjoy the view.
