Boulevard Artists photographer, Tadd Myers, has announced a beautiful new body of photographs captured during a recent trip to New Zealand. His New Zealand Sheep Farm Promotional Piece showcases a “day in the life” of these hardworking farmers, their sheep, and herding dogs in a beautifully designed 36-page folio. The front cover features a hand stitched wool fabric tag that is actually made from the same sheep featured in the piece.
“Our New Zealand Sheep Farm booklet began in May 2017 as a commissioned shoot by SH8 Merino to photograph five family-owned sheep farms located on New Zealand’s South Island. SH8 Merino is a co-op of farms located along State Highway 8 (SH8) in the central area of the South Island near the town of Twizel.”
“In order to document the daily life on these farms, we spent one full day shooting at each farm. I was so enamored by the country, the hardworking farmers we visited, and ultimately the images we captured that I decided to showcase them in a self-promotional piece. New Zealand is a relatively untouched and unpopulated country that has a diverse terrain of mountains and valleys which is ideal for raising Merino Sheep. Over the decades these farmers have worked hard to preserve their way of life in order to pass it on to the next generation. I’m excited to help share their story of hard work, tradition, and pride which they demonstrate every day,” Tadd said.
The 36-page piece was printed in Dallas, Texas in March 2018 and will be mailed to more than 2500 contacts around the world.
