Have you ever spent time on the board during shearing, the buzz, the chaos, the noise, the teamwork, it all adds up to a successful shearing. I always loved the shed, the whole dynamics of it.
Shearing should be in the Olympics, it is next to being a Farrier as a physical job. The stamina, the strength, the technique, most important the patience.
I recently took a few folks down to a high country run I worked on & we photographed the shearing, what a challenging time, stay out the way, the lighting, capturing the moment, it all adds up to a great time as a photographer
