I was invited to speak to the Chicagoland chapter of the North American Nature Photography Association a few weeks ago. I did a presentation at ProCam in Aurora on the adventurous life of being a farm and agriculture photographer.

I shared some of the challenges of things I encounter in the field, and how I deal with them. I also mentioned many of the travel, scheduling, and weather apps I use on the road to help make my life easier.

It was a good opportunity for me to go back through the last few years of farm photography and find images that I haven’t shared with anyone yet. For every farm I visit I take between 1500-2000 images. Last year I visited 16 farms. That’s a mountain of material to sort through. It was nice to look back on it with fresher eyes and see some gems in there I overlooked before.
