Farming is a way of life in the rural mid west of the United States and its a very special, but also demanding time with the farmers being out in the fields all day and sometimes even all night to get their acres of corn, soybeans, or any other crop out of the ground. Capturing these farmers in there element working makes for a great stock picture whether it is for a farm magazine, agricultural blog, or even a cooking article describing where your food comes from, designers and companies from all... continue reading

So I have lived in Oregon for about 8 years and always heard about the Tulip Festival. This year I finally got make it and it was as just as beautiful as you could imagine. I have never seen so many different colors of tulips in my life. They had 3 hot-airedballoons for rides, a small train for kids and even a steam engine for the adults to get on and moves back and forth through the fields.While I was there, the one thing I noticed was all the folks taking pictures using the flowers are... continue reading
If you ask anyone that lives or grew up near a farm they would mostly tell you that life on a farm can be rough and can be grueling, waking up early everyday to feed the animals and cleaning the pins they live in is just to start the day, followed by hopping in the tractor plowing the fields or harvesting "depending on the time of year" and usually ending at sunset where if your lucky might be able to kick back and have a beer, then of course its waking up in the morning and doing it all... continue reading
For urban dweller trip to the countryside is a great way to spend a weekend, walk in nature and take pictures. Especially beautiful in summer - green fields and meadows, rural landscape and various farm animals. From a distance, have noticed meadow with wild flowers and charming baby piglets with a large pig. Away near the forest grazing cow and few horses with foals. We saw a herd of goats on the road, I did not have time to shoot, but one goat was left in the forest and willingly... continue reading

I chose... continue reading
Farms are seen as a dirty place, but through the lens of a camera so much beauty can be captured. As a farmer by day and a photographer by night one thing I can ensure you is that you should be prepared at all times. Prepare yourself and your equipment for dirt and dust, wear old clothes such as "dirty jeans" because for some shots you may need to kneel down in mud,grass etc. Transporting equipment is another issue I have faced and learned that the key is to keep the lens cap on at all times to protect... continue reading

Who could pass up the promise of such a road?I remember living on Mount Desert Island and how my fellow islander Martha Stewart called... continue reading
