Heads Down, Bums Up - Shearing - 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.

Australian Fine Art Photographer, Dip of Fine Arts (Photography), whose work is inspired by a love of nature and the abstract.
My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.
I hope to surprise and intrigue the viewer with my work and explore the notion that beauty exists everywhere…in the right light!

Thank you for visiting my gallery.

    Love this series. I’ll have to show my husband (he grew up with sheep and shearing) I’ll bring back many happy memories.

  • I had such a great day out there yesterday, it was just so good to watch. Looks like such back breaking work but one of the shearers I spoke to said they just get used to it. Hope your hubby likes them, thanks so much Lorraine x
