Had a fun time photographing this story about Shawnee Mills in where else? Shawnee, Oklahoma. I love shooting photos of industrial-type settings and people at work. I worked with one of my favorite writers Hayley Leatherwood on this project. Because of the dust from the flour mill, I had to mount two cameras with lenses and NOT CHANGE LENSES or my cameras would have dust all over the sensor. Kind of like shooting a rodeo or motocross race with lots of dust flying around – no lens changes. It was certainly fun listening to the stories about how the mill was founded and all the storied history of Shawnee Mills. We have had their products in our cupboards for many years – what an Oklahoma tradition.
