“You may be fit, but are you Farm Fit?” Reads the tagline. Not your typical workout, here at Treewell Farm.
The scene is a Grey and windy Saturday morning at Treewell Farm. A working farm near Bedford. I’m here to shoot Farm Fit, a 2.5 hour fitness challenge that includes pulling Land Rover, flipping tyres and activities generally not found in your local fitness gym.
“ I’m here with my camera kit, rather than my gym kit to capture the event. And hopefully remain mud free, unlike the contestants!”
The scene is a Grey and windy Saturday morning at Treewell Farm. A working farm near Bedford. I’m here to shoot Farm Fit, a 2.5-hour fitness challenge that includes pulling a Land Rover, flipping tyres and activities generally not found in your local gym.
Around 20 entrants compete in the gruelling activities that push your strength and endurance for first place, and some are here just for the hell of it.
Me? I’m here with my camera kit, rather than my gym kit to capture the event. And hopefully remain mud-free, unlike the contestants! And what a friendly and energetic group with a positive attitude to having fun on the farm they are.
Of course, there's a competitive element to the event and each person is given a score for each activity they take part in. At the end of the activities, the individual scores are added and the male and female winners are announced. We all cheer and celebrate our farm fitness with a complimentary and well-deserved glass of prosecco. Cheers!

The Photography Challenge
An overcast sky and fast-moving subjects call for an interesting and demanding set of variables to manage. High-speed continuous shooting also helps to ensure I capture the perfect shot as the subject shifts and the light rapidly changes.
