Forestry Service Photo Shoot


Smokey Bear, the American advertising icon created to educate the public about the dangers of forest fires, turned 70 in August. Richard and our friend Ashley Gilbertson were commissioned by The Ad Council to make a series of photographs for their client US Forest Service as part of the birthday activities which appeared on millions of Instagram screens. The objective was to show teenagers that they are in control and can prevent wildfires.  Little Ghent farm was the perfect location with Martha on hand as an extra as well as Saundra, James, Hannah and the Ad Council client, Amy, seen here building a textbook campfire in our woods.
