Hi, I'm Shelby...
Hello! My name is Shelby Lockie and I am the BonaFide Cowboy Media & Productions Intern for Spring 2022! I am so excited to be working with Kenzie this semester to further my knowledge in the western media industry.
I am a senior at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming, where I am majoring in Communications and minoring in Public Relations. I am also a member of the UW Rodeo Team, competing in the breakaway roping. I am originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, and have an extensive background in ranching and rodeo.
Some of my earliest memories involve watching my Dad ride broncs and my Mom run barrels, dreaming of the day I would be able to join them. At 11 years old, I entered my first rodeo and fell in love. Today, myself and my two younger siblings are heavily involved in rodeo and love helping our parents on the ranch.
Through my experience as a rodeo queen my senior year of high school, I uncovered a passion for promoting the western way of life. I love to write about and promote it as much as possible to give back to the industry that has shaped my life.
Kenzie and I will be using this blog to share some of our insights on the western industry, as well as facts and statistics about why brand photography is so important and what you can gain from it. We’d love input from our readers on what you’d like to see more of as well - please feel free to send us any suggestions you may have!
Thanks and I look forward to sharing my work with you!
