About Seth Joel Photography
Seth Joel and Charlie Holland are professional photographers based in Los Angeles. We have enjoyed a long marriage and a successful career at Seth Joel Photography. This project, Ranch Raised Kids, was inspired by the amazing children that we met on ranches in Arizona. The kids are proud to represent the ranching lifestyle and show the good manners and hard-working ways that the community values.
Seth's portraits capture beautiful moments in the life of a child raised on a ranch, and the images shot through his honest and empathetic lens show the reality, not the myth, of contemporary ranching.
Through their thoughtful words, we understand a little more about the historical cowboy lifestyle and see how ranching practices are being modified to produce beef more efficiently in the C21st economy.
We are easy to spot as the people who are 'not from around here' at rodeos, calf sales, round-ups, and ranches. Photographing Ranch Raised Kids continues to be a thrilling and humbling experience. We learn something new from every kid, every day, on every ranch.
We look forward to documenting the next generation of California Ranch Raised Kids!
