Blushing Cactus Photographers: Devoted to their Community

Blushing Cactus Photographers: Devoted to their Community

Have you ever wondered how rodeo photographers get the action so right that you can practically feel a cantankerous bull’s hot breath? Tracy and Jeremiah Scheffer, owners of Blushing Cactus Photography, are master craftsmen in their field, and delight in sharing the heartbeat of arena action with enthusiastic rodeo fans. Prescott Frontier Days, Inc. is honored to once again have Blushing Cactus Photography as their primary photographers for the 137th World’s Oldest Rodeo, as they have for the past five years.

Since 2016 this hard-working couple has built their customer base with such diverse partners as US Vets, Boys and Girls Club, CASA For Kids, Make-A-Wish, and many other nonprofits. In their spare time, they photograph weddings, rock stars, high-profile sports teams, music festivals, the Prescott Boot Drop, and a very famous rodeo.  Tracy notes, “we love capturing all of these memories for our city, from rodeo to music festivals, the New Year’s Eve Boot Drop and other large events. We don’t take a moment of it for granted and appreciate all of the incredible people we’ve met through photography.”

In addition to combining their passion for music and photography, Tracy and Jeremiah have hopes of developing a photography mentoring program for local homeless and disadvantaged children in the near future. The Scheffer’s own message of hope and survival is part of their overall mission to give back to our community and “share our heart through our art.”
