In 2005 I had an idea that inspired Dairy Australia to create a series of images that inspired an exhibition called ‘Impressions of Dairy’
It began with my best friend’s daughter Jo taking a series of photos of her children on our farm.
This is Jo’s son Julian, who is now in high school
What this exhibition taught me was the power of a great photographer and I am very lucky to have met many of those in my quest to tell the great stories of Australia agriculture and the farmers that underpin it
It was recently brought home to me just how powerful my idea was when I saw a presentation 8 years later by Australian Dairy Farmer’s CEO Natalie Collard at recent event and my son appeared in her slide presentation with a much younger version of his dog “bear”
As farmers we need to remember marketing gurus on $150K plus salaries aren’t the only people with good ideas
Stand tall, be proud farmers – the best person telling your story is YOU
