Farm Progress Show

Commercial + Agricultural Photographer | Farm Progress Show 2019

You may have noticed that my social media posting and blogging schedule has been a little off for 2019. I’m happy to say that it is largely due in part to the amount of commercial photography work I have been doing. Many things I am not at liberty to share with you, and other things I haven’t quite figured out the best and most efficient way to share them. And then some things I will share eventually I hope!

Today I’m attending the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, which I have attended every other year for the past decade or so (in odd years it is in Illinois, and even years it is in Iowa). I used to tag along with my dad and grandpa just to visit booths that were interesting to me and to bump into friends, acquaintances, and old college buddies! While I’m still going along with my dad and grandpa, my motive is a bit different this year! I am really enjoying the commercial work I’ve been doing and feel like I’ve found something that can get me more work during the week, and take some pressure of my weekends (though I still LOVE and am booking weddings!).

My intention is to network and meet as many midwest-based companies as I can. I want to develop some new business relationships and see if any opportunities arise where my photography services could be useful. I am experienced in photographing products both with natural light and artificial light, event photography, and directing models (even the farmer type!) through candid photoshoots. I love any chance I get to visit a farm and take my camera with me!

I’ll do a follow up post next week with the photos I take at this year’s show. Stay tuned!
