A few weeks ago (Episode 008), we discussed photography skills with Jenn Zeller, South Dakota Cowgirl, in the context of being out on the ranch for advocacy and sharing your story. This week, we take a little different approach to photography skills and turn our attention to capturing those sometimes hard-to-get photos of cattle on the ranch when you want to utilize images for online marketing or advocacy.
I’ve been receiving questions from several ranchers over the past few months as we’ve been selling cattle on AgriClear, so I figured this would be a very fitting topic. Summer is the perfect time to be capturing those photos of cattle with slick hair coats and green landscapes, even before you begin planning for fall or winter marketing.
On this week’s episode of the Agriculture Proud podcast, I’m joined by Rachel Cutrer, founder and CEO of Ranch House Designs. Rachel has strong roots in the ranching and cattle community, being part of the V8 Ranch, a premiere Brahman and Shorthorn breeder located in Texas. Over the years Rachel has taken her love and expertise for marketing to found Ranch House Designs.
During our conversation in this podcast episode, Rachel shares a bit of her expertise and some great tips for improving your use of these tools and capturing those hard to get photos of cattle. She also shares some advice for others who want to become more involved in the marketing end of the cattle business.
If you haven’t yet found Ranch House Designs, I certainly encourage you to find them on social media. They do a lot of work to help cattle producers utilize online tools to promote their businesses and advocacy work. You can find them on Facebook, Twitter, Vine and Instagram. You should also follow their blog. A special thanks to RHD for including this page as a top agriculture blog to follow!
