Your Farm Album is a beautifully bound hard-cover book embossed with silver, featuring your farm or family name. The pages are thick and durable and have a smooth satin finish. The album comes with a glossy dust jacket

Photography

A photographer from Australian Farm Albums will visit your farm or property to capture the essence of your family and the place that they call home. The photographs will include both wide angle shots showing the landscapes you love, as well as close-up shots of details that can add so much to your farming story.
Your farm album will include photos of the buildings, infrastructure, livestock, pets, machinery, places and people that make your farm special.

Choose the right Farm Album or Your Family

Since our inception we have made our farm albums to the highest quality. A farm album has always been a 30cm x 30cm large format hardcover photo book with heavyweight pages. The album is covered in black cloth embossed in silver with the farm name on the cover. Over that we put a wrap-around dust jacket with a farm or family photo and the farm name. The farm album is presented in a matching black box embossed with the farm name in silver. It is highly attractive and of the best quality available in Australia.

So why would we want to change? That’s a good question! The answer is that we are not going to change the design or quality of the classic farm album. However we are introducing new levels of farm album, to give a range of options for farming families.

Australian Farms are all unique and have different needs when it comes to telling their story and recording their history. Australian Farm Albums now caters for each and every farming family with the following packages.

The ‘Lifetime’ Album
Two farm visits
Aerial drone photos
150 album pages
Add your photos and documents
Grand 30 x 30cm photo book

Sheep Farming in Australia

At one stage it was said that Australia rode on the sheep’s back. Over the years there have been ups and downs with wool prices, from the “pound for a pound” prices of the golden years of wool in the 1950s, to the wool stockpile crisis and the abolition of the Reserve Price Scheme in 1991. In 2018 wool has had a resurgence, with prices for fine merino wool reaching the best prices in decades in the first half of the year. While merinos have traditionally been the mainstay of Australian sheep farming there are now more breeds of sheep than ever. Shedding sheep bred only for meat now make up a significant portion of the sheep flock in Australia, and there are a few milk-producing sheep milked for cheese-making.
The merino breed is developing to better suit Australian conditions. There are now fewer horned merino rams, and more polls, and sheep are being bred to have fewer wrinkles to try to combat fly strike.

Working in the sheep yards

The introduction of live exports opened up markets for mutton that had once been out of the reach of Australian producers. In the 1970s and 1980s the demand from Middle Eastern countries saw live exports take off.
Now, after distressing footage was shown on national television of sheep suffering and dying on a live export vessel there has been a huge backlash from the community and calls to ban live exports. What is the future of live export?

A Photographer Who Makes Me Look Good!

Caroline was very particular about ensuring the photos were taken to give the best possible result and, at the same time, being very easy to work with.
I just love photographers who can make me look good! Asked Jim which one he would like and only received “they are all good!”

New: Australian Farm Albums Journal

The first edition of the Australian Farm Albums Journal. This is a magazine that will share stories from Australian Farms and bring the latest news of what is happening at Australian Farm Albums.

In the first edition you can see examples of aerial drone photography, and how amazing aerial photos of your farm will look. There is a feature on the animals we share our lives with, as pets or working animals, including photos of dogs, horses, poultry, and bottle-feeding a lamb and some kids (of the goat variety.) There is a focus on family, and the people who work or help on the farm; because no matter how hard you work, you can’t do it all by yourself.

Also in the first edition of the Australian Farm Albums Journal are a couple of case studies from families who have good stories to tell about what their Farm Albums mean to them. The first is a family who are no longer farming, so their Farm Album holds precious memories of their farm and farming lifestyle. The second family have used their Farm Album as a marketing tool. Both families have sent small copies of their farm albums (mini albums) to family members overseas.

Lastly, we have included a handy “farm alphabet” for you to mark off the things you have on your farm to be photographed. We couldn’t think of anything starting with ‘Z’ (so there is a prize for anyone who actually does have a zebra on their farm!)

The best bit about the magazine is that there is a special offer! If you get the first edition of the Australian Farm Albums Journal magazine and use the code, you will receive a bonus mini album with your Farm Album (but book before the 15 January to make sure you don’t miss out.)

The First Ever Australian Farm Album

Wrap around printed dust jacket cover on a farm album

Carrigaline 2009 Farm Album with dust jacket in place

In 2009 I started taking photos for my friend Jane, of her family’s farm. As she didn’t live far away I visited the farm several times and photographed all around the farm, as well as photographing the family at home.

This was to become the first ever Australian Farm Album!

Jane’s husband David had grown up on the farm, and his parents still lived on the farm in the house next door.  Jane and David’s three children were all attending the local primary school.  When they received their finished album, their eldest daughter had started boarding school in Perth. She was able to share the book with her new friends. Another copy was sent overseas to David’s sister, who lives in London.

 

Open view of the farm album

In 2012 the farm was sold, with the exception of the houses and sheds, which were subdivided off and kept by the family.  Now a further five years have passed and David is driving trucks for a living, Jane has set up an old building as an art studio while teaching at the local primary school, and the three children are all in Perth at either boarding school or university. The family is no longer farming, so their farm album contains precious memories and evidence of their family’s farming heritage to be passed down to future generations.

The album is stored in a fully bound and embossed presentation box.

The album is stored in a fully bound and embossed presentation box.

After selling their farm in 2012, this Farm Album has become even more precious to the family!

If your family is considering selling the farm, then don’t leave it too late! Email us now to talk about how we can help you to preserve photos of your family’s farming lifestyle in a beautiful hardcover photo book.

 

Memories fade, but photographs endure!

Spring Is Ram Sale Time For Australian Studs

The sheep industry is very busy in the springtime, with studs holding sales all around the country.

Caroline Telfer photographed the Anderson Rams merino ram sale near Kojonup last year, and the day has come around again for this year’s sale. With wool prices currently doing well, average prices at merino ram sales this year are higher than last year.

This sale is different from most, as it is held using the Helmsman auction system, whereby bidders vote for their preferred rams by submitting to the auctioneer slips of paper on which the purchase price is written. The current highest bid is displayed on a board, and once a bidder’s price is outbid then the price is updated on the board and they have a chance to put in a higher bid. In this way buyers are bidding on all of the rams over a period of an hour or so. Towards the end the bids will be finalised, and there will be a chance for one last bid on each ram. With this system there is a flurry of activity at times, and at other times it is a bit like cat and mouse, waiting to see if the person whose bid has just been beaten will come back to raise the stakes again.

You can see some “action shots” of the bidding in the photos below. The bidder handing over the bid slip is captured in one photo, and other photos show the buyers adding notes to their sale booklets, or watching the board. You can see the auctioneers writing numbers on the board and wiping off others as bids increase.

Like most rural events there is good country hospitality, as you can see in the photograph of family members at the food table.

The Ancestral Farm – Aerial Photos

A visit last week to the farm where I grew up in rural Western Australia brought back early farming memories. “Menota” was bought by my paternal grandfather at about the time of the second world war. My father bought the farm from his father, and expanded with more land in the 1970s by buying a neighbouring farm. I farmed with my father for six years from 1986 until 1992, when the farm was sold and my parents embarked on a new phase of their lives. Last week I took two of my children to visit the old farm, which is now just a small part of a larger farming enterprise, and the houses are uninhabited.

161219-0187_proof 161219-0163_proof

My family farming story started at Menota, and I was glad to be able to take my children to see where I grew up. But I don’t have a farm album to keep for my children and my children’s children. An Australian Farm Album is a snapshot of a farm at a moment in time. A farm album from when my grandfather started farming would show photos of the land being worked by simple machines pulled by horses. There would be photos of stooks of sheaves of oats in paddocks, ready to be thrashed into chaff for horse feed. Landscape photos would show much more vegetation than now, as clearing the land of mallee trees was a major undertaking in the early farming days. If my father had a farm album from his early farming days it would have photos of sinking dams, of plowing the soil with disc plows towed behind an open chamberlain tractor, and of the many workers who were employed to do the hard labour required to run a farm in the 1960s, before bulk grain and fertiliser handling was introduced. They would be carrying bags of grain or fertiliser, or carting loads of small square hay bales to be stacked in a hayshed. A farm album from when I left the farm in 1992 would include photographs of a large four wheel drive tractor pulling an airseeder, crop spraying, a big air-conditioned harvester putting grain into field bins and large round bales of hay. No farm stays the same, so making a photographic record of the farm by allowing us to create your own Australian Farm Album is a very worthwhile investment.
161219-0130_proof aerial farm photo

Pingrup is in the Shire of Kent in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia, and is situated at the southern end of a band of salt lakes which extends down from the Wheatbelt. Photographing this area with a drone shows the extent of the salt lakes. Aerial photographs show the abundance of salt lakes. Visitors are always fascinated by the pink lakes. The pink colour is beta carotene, created by micro-organism living in the extremely saline waters of the lakes. Other lakes in the area turn different colours – blue, green or yellow at certain types of the year, which I presume is due to the presence of different microorganisms .

From the aerial photos you can see that there are no square paddocks in between the lakes, but with GPS guidance the harvest lines in these photos are very different from the patterns that would have been left when I was harvesting thirty years ago.

Farm Photography – Karridale WA

I had a great time with the this farming family when I visited their farm at Karridale, near Augusta. They have the good fortune to lease a farm only ten kilometres out of Augusta, on the south coast, so they can live close to the beach while enjoying a farming lifestyle. (My kids would love to be able to go surfing after school, instead of having to wait for our annual two week beach holiday!)

Photo of farmer in green shirt pushing lambs up in the race

When I arrived there were merino x poll dorset lambs in the yard, being weighed and drafted to send off to market. Others were out in a fodder crop of oats, which they had been weaned onto. They should fatten up well in that fodder crop!

I have a ten-year-old son, so I was glad to have the opportunity to photograph another ten-year-old-boy. It is a wonderful age to be a boy on a farm! He played with the dog, and helped in the sheep yards. When the evening light caught his hair it was magical.

Finally I had to sneak in a photo of the alpacas. Aren’t they interesting animals? Here they are used as guard animals in lambing mobs as a protection against foxes.

Training – Industry Skills Fund

We bought a drone two years ago, excited that it would open up opportunities for aerial photography. When I first flew the DJI Phantom 2 Vision, billed as “The Flying Camera”, I was blown away! It was easy to fly and using an iPhone as a remote screen I could get amazing photos from the air. What a boon this would be to our farm photography business! Aerial photographs of your farm would add an extra dimension to the photos in your Australian Farm Album.

But when I started to look further into the business opportunities, I learnt that it was prohibited to fly an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) for professional purposes (anything other than for recreation) without a licence. So I looked at training courses and found that not only do I have to be accredited as a remote pilot, but I have to fly under the auspices of a business accredited with a Remote Operator’s Certificate. So for me personally and for Australian Farm Albums as a business to become fully accredited, we were looking at $5,500 in training, plus the application fees (about $600) to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and ongoing annual fees to remain accredited. And that looked like the end of my brief career as a remote pilot…

The Industry Skills Fund (ISF) made the difference when I learned that the fund can pay up to 75% of training fees, which will help a business to develop new business opportunities. The education must be provided by a registered training organisation and the training can be for business owners or employees. After submitting an initial enquiry via the website, I was contacted by the ISF and one of their agents came out and sat down with us to go through our business to get an idea of where the business was at, and the opportunities that new skills would provide. They then made a report outlining the training available, and over the last few months I have spent several days training in Perth, as well as completing online course modules, to become a certified remote pilot. The ISF will follow up afterwards because they need to see that the funding they are providing is improving the bottom line for businesses.

Now we have bought the latest model Phantom 4 UAV and I’m ready to photograph farms from the sky, without having to leave the ground!

If you think your business could develop new business opportunities with access to training for business owners or employees, have a look at the Industry Skills Fund at https://www.business.gov.au/assistance/internal-assistance/industry-skills-fund and apply online.

Spring Colour – Aerial Drone Photos

Farm photo showing aerial view over farmland near Darkan in WA

Aerial photo of view over farmland near Darkan in Western Australia

The golden colour of the landscape around Darkan and many farming areas in spring is the yellow flower of canola crops. Canola is grown for its high oil content. In Australia it is used for cooking oil, spreads and shortening, prepared foods, cosmetics, lubricants, fuels and other industrial applications. The byproduct meal is used as a feed supplement for dairy, poultry and other livestock. Apart from the bright colour it lends to the landscape the crop also spreads a distinct and unpleasant smell. And for those who suffer from hay-fever it can cause severe allergy symptoms.

The layout of this canola paddock looks a bit like the trunk of a tree (driveway) with branches reaching off it (contour banks).

 

But for farmers the golden colour of canola in flower is the colour of money!

Curtin Ignition – Ideas For Growth

Last week was a big week for the Australian Farm Albums business and for Caro, as she attended the Curtin Ignition program at the Centre for Entrepreneurship at Curtin Business School, at Curtin University in Perth. This was with thanks to a scholarship from the WA Department of Local Government and Communities, Women’s Interests.
The week was an intense training program full of speakers, presentations, discussions, and workshops where participants had access to mentors from the business and academic world, as well as graduating students from the MBA class at Curtin, to guide them in their business development journey.

image-1 DN1_0823cca image-2

From the Curtin Ignition website:

Do you have an idea or innovation that could become a high growth business?

Ignition is an annual event held in Perth. Run by the Curtin Centre for Entrepreneurship, it is based on the successful Ignite program managed and delivered by the University of Cambridge Judge Business School’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL).

Ignition is a five and a half day intensive program which prepares you for taking your idea to the business world. Ignition starts Sunday 31st August and culminates on Friday 5th September with a celebration dinner.

Ignition is comprised of a blend of practical teaching sessions, expert clinics, mentor sessions and experienced advice and support from leading entrepreneurs and innovators.

It will give you the tools, contacts and confidence to transform your idea into a successful business project.

The outcome of the week is that we now have a much clearer direction for the business, and in an exciting move we will be taking on new photographers to service more areas in the near future. So if your farm is in an area we haven’t been before, or if you are a rural photographer looking to expand your horizons, we might be working with you soon!!

Real Aussie Farms on Facebook

We have been enjoying following the new Aussie Farms page on Facebook over the last week or so. The page celebrates all that Australian farmers are and do in a very positive way. But it doesn’t leave out the tough realities of farming. I liked the post about assisted calving (maybe because this year has been the first year in a very long time that we have not had cows calving on our farm, so have not had to deal with any troublesome births ourselves.)
The page aims to show all aspects of a broad range of farming enterprises in Australia.
The Real Aussie Farms page on Facebook is a great way for farmers to share their farming stories.
And an Australian Farm Album is a great way for you to showcase your farming story!

Roger Telfer: Australian Farm Albums

I’ve been farming for 35 years. After school I came home to the farm for a year to decide what I wanted to do. My dad had about 1,200 acres cleared back then and I helped him tidy up some of the new land. We cleared another 600 acres and bought merino sheep. Until then Dad was running beef cattle and only had a few sheep. We have developed our merino flock to produce high quality fine wool.

I never found anything that I wanted to do more than farming, so I stayed on. I did some courses through TAFE – welding and agricultural mechanics – and I travelled, including an overseas agricultural exchange in Minnesota.

Eventually my parents retired to the coast and I married a farm girl from further out. We have made a lovely home on the farm for our kids, and our eldest son is now home on the farm too. In recent years we have been re-fencing paddocks and doing some land conservation work in salt affected areas. I’m really proud of what I have achieved on our family farm.

Roger is a farmer and partner at Australian Farm Albums

Now that our children are growing up, and our son is home on the farm, I have cut back on my farming work which has allowed me to take a more active part in my wife’s photography business, and to support Australian Farm Albums.

Caro Telfer: Australian Farm Albums

I grew up with my three sisters on a farm in the Great Southern and after I dropped out of university I went home to the family farm and farmed with my father for six years. I learnt a lot about machinery and enjoyed driving the tractor and the harvester. I remember we had one very dry year when I spent a lot of time in the old International truck carting water for livestock. I had my own sheep dog, and we spent hours droving sheep and working in the sheep yards. At shearing time I would roustabout until I got my owner-classer certificate and then I could class the wool.

Eventually the farm was sold and I moved to a tourist town where I worked at an art gallery for a short time before I met my husband and moved to his farm. It was strange becoming a farmer’s wife instead of a farmer. I still help out on the farm but my main focus for the last sixteen years has been my children, and now my photography business.

Photo of Caro Telfer, woman wearing glasses, a black dress, and a large heart necklaceAs Caro Telfer, Photographer I had been photographing farming families for many years as part of my family portrait business when I realised that I wanted to document more than just the people on the farm. When my friend’s family made the tough decision to sell their farm I went and photographed the farm to make a farm album for the family before they left. Then I decided our own family should have one. And I wished that I had something similar to show my kids so they could see what I did on the farm with their grandfather before I was married. We have a bit of old video footage somewhere, but not an album of photos that tells the whole story.

And hey, why shouldn’t every family family have an album with photos that tell their farming story?

Feeding Sheep : Warragal Park

Despite the fact that the farm has turned green after the rains, which brought on the germination of pastures, there is still not enough bulk in that paddocks for the pregnant ewes to keep up their feed requirements prior to lambing. So the sheep are being trail feed with a mix of oats and lupins. This is an aerial shot from the DJI Phantom 2 Vision taken this morning at Warragal Park.

Australian Farm Albums: Vision

120814-2545

At Australian Farm Albums we believe in the value of photographs as memories so we provide farming families with quality professional photographs that document their farms in exclusive, hard cover coffee-table style photo books which tell their individual farming stories.

 

We know that farming is a way of life and also a business. Many family farms have been handed down over several generations, and each generation has continued the legacy of preceding generations. We want farmers to showcase their life’s work in albums which portray their love of the land along with the struggles and successes they have during the course of their farming careers.

Roger Telfer: Australian Farm Albums

I’ve been farming for 35 years. After school I came home to the farm for a year to decide what I wanted to do. My dad had about 1,200 acres cleared back then and I helped him tidy up some of the new land. We cleared another 600 acres and bought merino sheep. Until then Dad was running beef cattle and only had a few sheep. We have developed our merino flock to produce high quality fine wool.

I never found anything that I wanted to do more than farming, so I stayed on. I did some courses through TAFE – welding and agricultural mechanics – and I travelled, including an overseas agricultural exchange in Minnesota.

Eventually my parents retired to the coast and I married a farm girl from further out. We have made a lovely home on the farm for our kids, and our eldest son is now home on the farm too. In recent years we have been re-fencing paddocks and doing some land conservation work in salt affected areas. I’m really proud of what I have achieved on our family farm.

Now that our children are growing up, and our son is home on the farm, I have cut back on my farming work which has allowed me to take a more active part in my wife’s photography business, and to support Australian Farm Albums.

Caro Telfer: Australian Farm Albums

I grew up with my three sisters on a farm in the Great Southern and after I dropped out of university I went home to the family farm and farmed with my father for six years. I learnt a lot about machinery and enjoyed driving the tractor and the harvester. I remember we had one very dry year when I spent a lot of time in the old International truck carting water for livestock. I had my own sheep dog, and we spent hours droving sheep and working in the sheep yards. At shearing time I would roustabout until I got my owner-classer certificate and then I could class the wool.

Eventually the farm was sold and I moved to a tourist town where I worked at an art gallery for a short time before I met my husband and moved to his farm. It was strange becoming a farmer’s wife instead of a farmer. I still help out on the farm but my main focus for the last sixteen years has been my children, and now my photography business.

Photo of Caro Telfer, woman wearing glasses, a black dress, and a large heart necklaceAs Caro Telfer, Photographer I had been photographing farming families for many years as part of my family portrait business when I realised that I wanted to document more than just the people on the farm. When my friend’s family made the tough decision to sell their farm I went and photographed the farm to make a farm album for the family before they left. Then I decided our own family should have one. And I wished that I had something similar to show my kids so they could see what I did on the farm with their grandfather before I was married. We have a bit of old video footage somewhere, but not an album of photos that tells the whole story.

And hey, why shouldn’t every family family have an album with photos that tell their farming story?
