​Ranch Raised Kids is a photo project that will reflect the reality not the myth of contemporary cowboy life in Arizona.    

To celebrate the progress of Ranch Raised Kids we have printed
a ‘lookbook’ showing our work in 2016. 

We will shoot thru 2017 and publish a comprehensive book that celebrates the next generation of Arizona ranchers.
    
 
   
Ranch Raised Kids is a tribute to the children we met on the vast rugged ranches of Arizona. In 2016 we photographed many families in Yavapai and Coconino Counties. We hope these images will show people outside the ranching community how these dynamic and talented children are being raised. In 2017 we are travelling through southern and eastern Arizona meeting and photographing another twenty families. If you are raising ranch kids, or want to recommend a family for this project, please get in touch with Charlie 


If you would like to purchase a copy of the lookbook click buy here . Your $25 contribution will help support the photography that remains to be done in 2017.  It is a 8"x12" soft cover book with images and quotes from 15 kids.

Please enjoy the pictures and the thoughts of these Ranch Raised Kids. We hope you too can hear in their words their deep, unshakeable love of cattle, horses, the work and the land. We are so proud to know them. 

We plan to attend the events listed at right. Please say hello!

Ranch Raised Kids is photographed by Seth Joel and his wife, Charlie Holland. They are professional photographers based in Los Angeles.
