The Daily Telegraph Sent A Photographer To Farming Friends

On Sunday The Daily Telegraph sent a photographer. Steve and I had our photo taken in the farmhouse kitchen with the laptop and a hen! I had my photo taken inspecting a basket of eggs. We then went outside and I had the laptop and Steve was in the background pushing the wheel barrow. We then went into the pig barn but the sows and boar as well as the weaners were very curious about the lighting tripods and tried to eat the legs of the tripod. We had to abandon the photos with the pigs as they were too curious and wouldn’t pose! Who was it who said never work with animals!

We also had photos taken with the cattle as the pigs wouldn’t behave as the photographer wanted. The cattle were not as curious and better behaved.

The photography shoot took 3 hours and the photographer said that the paper would probably only use one photo!

I am looking forward to seeing the chosen photo if the Daily Telegraph publish the article.

  1. WHAT FUN! I wish the photographer would let you have a copy of the images he took, even if it doesn’t make into the article. Do post a link (if possible) when you are published 🙂
