What is Farm Photography? Why farm photography? What is the point? These are questions I’m asked and that run through my head quite often. Today, I hope to do my best to answer. I grew up on a small dairy farm in north central Wisconsin. My family still produces milk with our small herd of Holsteins, Brown Swiss and a few Guernsey mixes. I know everything about caring for cattle, how to start up a John Deere 3150 and what speed to go when I’m chopping hay.
“Do you have a place where we can see fields and woods?”“You can come to our house!”As I drove up to their cute little hideaway, I realized we hit the jackpot with a location! And all they had to do was walk out their back door! Sometimes we over think the locations for our photos, but Nikki and I knew, we wanted some genuine family interaction, play time and room for a few portraits. Her husband Andy and their three amazing daughters were an absolute dream to work with!
MANITOWOC - For 22-year-old Breanna Glaeser, life was filled with cows, early mornings and a pride in her work that culminated each year in an event she said was almost like Christmas — the Manitowoc County Fair. “The fair is one of those weeks where you have the best of everything, the best food, the best time to be with family,” Glaeser said. Glaeser has been involved with the county fair in one way or another since she was 4 years old.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
