Holy crap! I’d better hurry before it fills up!!!
I think they made their business model a bit too specific.
They should have just dealt with bovine positioning services and leave the photography aspect out of it. Everyone knows bovine positioning is all the rage while photography is a thing of the past.
Carr, this post reaffirms my hope for a positive future for the internet. Thank you.
Scoff if you like, but when the 4-H kids who take that Ag Extension class pull down $18-$22K after selling that cow at the 4-H Livestock Auction the following August, they’ll be laughing all the way to the bank!
Yes, its a pretty unusual profession.
When I worked for an agricultural newspaper, and had to take photos of the prizewinning animals, it was difficult to get a shot that showed the animal at its best — straight back, legs striding, head up, chest out, and so forth — so that the readers could tell why this animal won. Pigs were the most difficult, as I recall.
I found it fascinating to watch the professional livestock photographers work and how they could move a huge animal into the right position so that the cattlemen would be happy with the photos of their prizewinning cattle.
