I realized yesterday that it might be important to capture a ‘working’ photo of myself, to prove that I actually do work with cows, give guest lectures, and enjoy doing ranch work. Only, there’s a problem – I’m always the one behind the camera. That, or working by myself. It’s not that I just want to show off what I do, but these might be important when it comes to publishing some print material or more professional appearances. I mean, sure I can show ya tons of photos of my cattle, horses, and the places I’ve been, but not very many to show me actually working.
I do have a few shots, but they’re not very printable.
Like this one with a foal back in undergrad. This incident was fun finding triplets, but not a very good photo.
This photo made sure to get my good side while tagging a calf.
And my favorite holding this placenta, but again, not very printable.
Then there was a few where I showed others how to perform a necropsy.
And another one of my favorites from the mountains. But not really a photo of me working.
Does anyone else have this problem? Or am I the only one nerd enough to have the only camera in the crowd?
