Eekkk, image number 50! Choosing all of these images and following the farmer’s work is such a joyous part of running Photography Farm. There are just two more images to go before the first year comes to an end and to celebrate this and all of the Farmers’ achievements, I am super busy planning an awards ceremony and party for them. Our amazing industry friends and Brand Partners have donated incredible prizes for them and one lucky Farmer will win Farmers Image of the Year and scoop quite a kick ass bundle of industry swag.

Meantime though I want to talk about this stunning image by my almost namesake Lisa Devine who is based up in Scotland. When I’m looking for these winning images I’m wanting to be stopped in my tracks.. I want to be floored by an image that stands alone as an extraordinary narrative, that draws me in so I want to know more of the story. This image sums that up for me, it is brave and tender, it is warm and inviting, it is intriguing and emotive.. it quite literally stopped me when I saw it on facebook and I instantly wanted to find out more. It is quite literally a beautiful moment beautifully captured and a testament to how as photographers, we record that couple’s relationship but also our relationship to them. My hat is well and truly off to you Lisa…
