Florida Agricultural Museum, Cowgirls and Horses

Florida Cracker Calf

I recently had the opportunity to host a stylized equine photography shoot at the Florida Agricultural Museum. The Florida Agricultural Museum was founded in 1983 to preserve Florida’s agricultural past and educate the public about agricultural issues in the State of Florida. The museum celebrates the history of the Florida Cracker heritage and is home to Cracker horses, cattle and sheep. As a matter of fact an adorable new calf had been born just a few days before I was scheduled to be onsite shooting!

One of my personal favorite parts of the Florida Agricultural Museum are the old buildings that have been relocated from across the state to become a working part of the museum. The 1940’s Caldwell Dairy Barn, the Mule Barn, the Bell Barn, and several other beautiful old and restored building provided an authentic rustic feel for my photography work.

The Florida Agricultural Museum will be just one featured part of an equine photography workshop that we will be hosting here in Florida with esteemed photographer, Phyllis Burchett of Phyllis Burchett Photography. Join photographers from across the United States at the one of a kind equine photography workshop complete with horses on the beach at sunrise and sunset and the historical “old Florida” backdrop highlighting the history of the Florida Cracker and Florida agriculture.
