It was a beautiful evening, so I grabbed an Americano at Caribou and walked around down at Silver Lake with my cameras. I forgot how nice it is down there. I've only been a handful of times since my childhood when we'd frequently stop down to feed the geese.

I’ve been shooting for Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) for about ten years now and always enjoy doing work for them. Typically they have me photographing agriculture, or farmers out in the field, but occasionally they’ll have me shoot one of their gatherings, such as their first Kernal Nation event at J. Carver Distillery in Waconia, Minnesota. Here, legislators, chamber of commerce members and others from the community came out to meet with area corn farmers and discuss agriculture today and its economic impact. This place uses grains grown right here in Minnesota to make vodkas, scotches, whiskeys and so on. It’s a very cool place, as you can see by the photos!

“This is the second year that the Minnesota Corn Growers Association (MCGA) has hosted Kernel Nation events, which are held to further develop relationships and make connections between greater Minnesota residents and the corn farming community. Last Wednesday, MCGA hosted their first Kernel Nation event of 2017 in Waconia at J. Carver Distillery.

The night kicked off with a social hour and welcome before the distillery tour and tasting, followed by dinner, drinks and closing remarks from MCGA Executive Director Adam Birr. Individuals in attendance ranged from local chamber of commerce members, local legislators and representatives to corn farmers, MCGA members and staff.

Topics of conversation throughout the night covered the economic impact of corn and its vast uses, as well as MCGA’s leadership role and ag-related policies in the news. Attendees were very interested in Minnesota corn farmers’ initiative to become the most sustainable and environmentally responsible corn farmers in the United States. MCGA shared information on the farmer-led research through the Innovation Grant Program and highlighted corn growers’ investment in research that promotes sustainability and progress related to soil fertility, water quality and corn utilization.

Kernel Nation’s Waconia event allowed guests to bring up important discussion surrounding questions and information on corn farming and agriculture. Kernel Nation has one more event coming up shortly in Marshall on July 26.

A special thank you to our friends at J. Carver Distillery for hosting and providing great locally sourced spirits, along with our guests who came out to show support for Minnesota corn farmers.

The Fremont Store in Fremont, Minnesota.

As an agricultural photographer based in Rochester, Minnesota, who shoots primarily throughout the midwest, I am constantly out driving the backroads photographing farm life in rural America. A few weeks ago I was all over southern Minnesota photographing farmers with their vintage tractors for a project SEMA Equipment is working on. When passing through Fremont, Minnesota, I came upon this very old country store, which I had actually stopped to photograph in the past. But this time the lighting was absolutely beautiful as the sun was about to set, so I just had to stop.

The Fremont Store, located just south of Lewiston, Minnesota, was built in 1856 and still functions as a store today. It is currently owned and operated by 101-year-old, Martha Johnson, who lives right next door.

I was recently hired to do some product photography for a local upstart company called Ballerina Botanicals. Michaelene Karlen and her mother, Michelle Karlen, started making natural and organic skincare products for their own personal use a few years back and eventually had so many people asking them for it that they decided to start this company, and bam, things just took off! Now Michaelene, who was pursueing a professional dance career after spending a few years at a prestigious dance school in New York City, works full-time researching, making, marketing and selling Ballerina Botanicals skincare products. Their products are made with 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils. Every single ingredient is listed, so you will never have to question what you are putting on your skin. All products are cruelty-free and toxic-free. So how awesome is that?!

"We have a holistic approach to life because we feel it is important to keep harmful toxins, preservatives, and words we cannot pronounce out of our body. The simple life is a better life…period. This goes for our products too, because sometimes less is really more." — Michaelene & Michelle Karlen.

I've been shooting portraits of various farmers in southeastern Minnesota with their old, often restored, tractors for one of my clients, SEMA Equipment, Inc., to be used in promotional pieces they are putting together. This is an outtake from one I did this morning of their son hanging out on the tractor during our shoot.
