Last month we shared the photographers who make us pause on social media with their photos that give us an insight into rural and farming life. We couldn’t stop there! Enjoy discovering what life on the land is like through the lens of these photographers who are passionate about their lives in the bush.
Jaz Stewart / @jaz.stewart.photography
When Jaz Stewart isn’t behind the camera, she is working hard as a cook on a remote cattle station in Western Australia’s Kimberleys. What was only going to be a gap year before university has turned into a new lifestyle, career and home for Jaz who hails from Moree in NSW.
Jaz got into photography six years ago and she’s now taken it to a professional level as she captures the deep reds and browns of WA’s station country and the personalities of the people who live there – and it’s the lighthearted insights into what ringers do with their down time that has caught our attention!
Susan Jacobs / @susan_jacobs_photography
From dreamy shots of livestock to giving us that bird’s eye view, Susan Jacobs photos inspire us to stop and take in the detail. Born and bred on a farm near Dalby in Queensland, Susan is keeping the family legacy going, now raising her two kids on the family property she grew up on with her husband and her parents. It has been a certified organic farm since the 1980s and runs a broadacre rotation of crops, green manure legumes, and sheep and cattle.
Adam Edwards / @adzy_edwards
While not strictly farming, Adam “Adzy” Edwards’ outback landscapes give us that road trip feeling. A self-confessed chaser of Australian landscapes, Adam grew up in the outback mining town of Broken Hill in NSW and this remote yet dramatic part of Australia features often in his work.
Ruby Canning / @mavstarphotography
Ruby Canning’s family farm has influenced her photography. Not only is the name of her business, Mavstar Photography, drawn from the family’s cattle stud, Mavstar Simmentals, but Ruby’s social media grid is filled with beautiful images of livestock. We love how much Ruby loves her cattle – she even made sure “Dakota” was in photos when she graduated from university.
“Dakota was gifted to me from my grandparents in 2008. She has been an incredible show cow, and has been used in multiple embryo programs at home. She is a true matron in our herd, having produced our best females year after year. My Pa passed away when I was 12, and my upbringing was filled with memories on the farm with him and my family. He shared with me his love for cattle, and the beef industry and I will always be proud to carry his legacy on.”
