Off Topic: Any farmers out there? 12-Nov-2009 At 10:22:45 AM Mike
Okay, I realise this has nothing to do with climbing, and is a serious long shot, but...

Are there any sheep farmers out there (in Victoria), who are soon to do some shearing and wouldnít mind having their photo taken? Possibly you own, or run a sheep farm (or your family does) and youíd be okay with myself loitering about the shearing shed taking the odd shot of the shearing in action (hopefully without interrupting your work), on a day of your choosing. Iím happy to travel pretty much anywhere in Victoria (within letís say 4-5 hrs of Bendigo).

As an example, this is a shot I took last year when the opportunity arose by chance:
From a purely artistic motivation Iíd love to explore the working shearing shed/life on the land kind of theme, making the hard working farmer the central focus.

I canít offer money in return. This is an artistic endeavor very unlikely to yield many print sales. However Iíd be happy to furnish you with a set of enlargements from the day (assuming we get a few worthy shots) or offer my services free of charge as a portrait photographer should you want to set up an impromptu shoot of the family/children/grandchildren, etc.

Obviously my main photographic interest remains landscapes, but I grew up working summer holidays as a general roustabout (come pseudo sheep dog) in a shearing shed not far from my parents property. Although that was more than 20 years ago, and maybe itís nostalgia, I always thought the shed offered great light.

If anyone can help, please email or phone 04 2852 8572.

PS: Iím hoping to be in the Gramps this weekend, probably milling about the Rosea/Bundaleer area exploring landscape opportunities, if anyone was planning on climbing something and wouldnít mind a few frames taken of them please let me know.
