Farming Photos

Over the years I’ve photographed many different types of businesses, from Food to Jewellery making and even Magicians. Since moving to Devon, my Commercial Portfolio has expanded to photographing more countryside businesses, like Holiday B&Bs and Wine Making. However, despite living in a village surrounded by Farms, I’d never really photographed them much.

The other day, after a trip out to test my new Camouflage Coverings, I returned home to see they were grassing the grass in the field opposite.

This was probably the first time I stood and watched this happening, as generally I avoid any sort of grass cutting as it really affects my hayfever. However, I persevered and tried not to breathe in when the cutting swung close.

I posted these shots on our local facebook group, they got some interest and I was told they’d be back the next day to collect the grass.

I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to complete the process, so kept an eye, or more, listened out for the sound of the tractors in the field and then headed over to take some more photos.

It’s an interesting process, and great to see the farming machinery working to see how they collect it all.

Using my big lens, allowed my to get some great close-up photos, whilst of course keeping a safe distance outside the field.

The final stage of the process is clearing the grass and taking it away. Again, a different set of machines, this time 2, to gather up and store the grass.

I was pleased to be able to sell a few prints from the batch of photos I took and it gave me some great additional commercial photos for my portfolio.
