The Shearer & The Rouseabout - TTV by 


Yesterday I visited and was fortunate to be able to photograph the shearing at Deeargee Woolshed on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia.

It was such a thrill to witness the buzz and activity of the woolshed. The shearers and rouseabouts work so hard, the pace never stops……….. 5 shearers, 9,000 sheep, 8 days.

A huge thank you to the shearers, rouseabouts, classers and especially to the Sutherlands for the wonderful opportunity, it truly was an eye-opening and fantastic experience.

Photographed through the viewfinder of my vintage Argoflex Seventy-five – taken 18/8/2010.

Untouched apart from crop.

My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.

  • The light in this shed was to die for Mel, I’m glad I managed to capture it.

    Really like the crop. It evokes the spirit of Tom Roberts’ art. One of the characters in my first novel is a former shearer.

  • Walking into a shearing shed in full swing is like walking into one of his paintings… and they’re full of ‘characters’. Thanks so much for the huge compliment.
