Rodeo Flicks with Click

Join Exclusive Tours in welcoming two-time National Finals Rodeo (NFR) Photographer of the Year, Christopher “Click” Thompson to Cody, Wyoming, and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West for a Deluxe Tours and Toddies program on July 3rd from 4:30-6:30 PM. During the heart of Cody’s Stampede Rodeo celebrations, here’s another chance to experience our unique cowboy culture!
“My images are truly successful when you can feel the moment, not just see it!”
– Christopher “Click” Thompson
Whether you are a budding photographer, rodeo aficionado, or just love the history of the Old West, you don’t want to miss spending time with Click as he shares his serendipitous photographic journey into the heart of the American rodeo.
Photographer, graphic designer, and educator, Thompson channels his east coast roots to capture a modern western icon: The American Cowboy. From the grand vistas of the American west to the boots and spurs of each cowboy passed, there are always new moments to see, feel, capture, and share. Click’s journeys over this last decade have taken him to many of the industry’s most prestigious events, including the National Finals Rodeo, The Cody Stampede, Cheyenne Frontier Days, The Pendleton Roundup, The American Rodeo, Rodeo Houston, and Professional Bull Riders World Finals.
Participants at this Tours and Toddies will join Click and our expert Exclusive Tours guides on a tour thru rodeo and cowboy history. From paintings by Charlie “the Kid” Russell and N.C. Wyeth in the Whitney Western Art Museum to the legendary performers of the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, Click’s photographs will be on display FOR ONE DAY ONLY alongside some of our most treasured artifacts. Much like Russell, Wyeth, and Buffalo Bill’s artistic visions of the West, Thompson will share the stories and challenges behind the favorite modern flicks he’s captured while your Exclusive Tours guide shares the history.
At the end of the tour, Click will bring the guests back to the Exclusive Tours Depot for additional Q&A, custom charcuterie, and adult beverages.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience first-hand accounts with one of the best photographers in the rodeo world as he continues to capture Western history in the making!
This VIP Exclusive Tours and Toddies experience is $60/person, and just $55/person for the Center of the West members. Spots are limited! Advanced registration is required. Register online at tickets.centerofthewest.org, or by calling (307) 254-7073, or by emailing [email protected].
