Gotham Gloworm: A Bovine Portrait Session in Kent
So I had a request to go and photograph some cows and a bull, Gotham Gloworm. Hmmmmmmm needless to say I was a little nervous about this whole thing! I don’t claim to be a cow photographer and a large part of photography is understanding the subject matter.
What make it tick- how will it react? So because I don’t spend a lot of time around cows how would I know what to do? Nerves set in and as the day rolled around I was nervous. I don’t like letting people down.
Vicky Cox and John put me ease though and we had a lovely mooch around the fields to see the ladies. They were very friendly and gave me a lot to work with. So far so good! Lots of countryside to photograph as well as some inquisitive faces.
Gotham Gloworm: The main man
Last but not least was the Bull. Husbands parting words in the morning were ‘don’t get crushed by the bull’ I climbed into a hay feeder and felt nice and safe. Sadly I got no pictures of me in there-sorry not sorry.
Gotham Gloworm is his name and he is built!! Huge, muscled and a force to be reckoned with. I felt quite safe in the feeder but got out of range when he came to say hi. I mean I’m sure he’s really friendly but he is huge. He would be described as hench if he were a human.
I’m pretty pleased with the end results-although the flies were a pain it was good fun. Something a bit different and really interesting to photograph a different 4-legged creature. Thank you Gotham Gloworm for being such a stunning model!
