BOOM: Photo Shoot with a 15yr.Old Huntress Challenges Photographer’s View Of Hunting

Published on December 15, 2014

Amazing pics and story from a non-hunter’s perspective.

Recently, after a decade as a successful wedding photographer and another decade as a professional snowboarder, photographer Hillary Maybery decided to switch it up a bit and start shooting more commercial lifestyle and fashion work.

But her favorite type of work is personal work. And it’s her personal desire for continued growth and variety that led her to challenge her own pre-conceptions and create an interesting photo series that follows a 15-year-old girl who loves to elk hunt.

As she recently told Wonderful Machine:

I thought hunters were barbaric, blood thirsty, gun lovers […] Hunting has nothing to do with violence or aggression. It’s a little like farming or gardening […] What I learned with Harlee’s family is that they want to know where their food comes from, have clean lean meat, they eat the whole animal, and share the meat with friends and family.
