Hey there! I am Ciara Griffith, a fourth-generation commercial cattle and mixed grain farmer located East of Hussar Alberta. Ranching and farming have always been passions of mine, as well as photography, especially Western Lifestyle. Being able to capture my lifestyle and share it through images is something I consider very special.
I have always had a drive for photography, I can remember getting my first camera when I was nine and taking it out before school that morning to take photos of weaning. It’s incredible to me, to have the capability to capture emotion and freeze a moment. I strive for my images to tell stories and spark memories. When I’m not taking pictures or working around the farm I’m teaching Grade Two at a neighbouring Hutterite Colony.
Born and raised in the interior of BC, I hail from a large ranching and blue-collar background. I am passionate about our ranching heritage and remain grateful for the opportunities and experiences that the agricultural industry has afforded both family and friends. The people and places that embody our western way of life serve as a focus of my photography. Each image that I share reveals part of a story. I live on a ranch, near Okotoks, AB and spend a great deal of time in my saddle or on the highway, living my best life. I teach elementary school, by day and my students truly light-up my life.
To me, the “West” is a way of life. It’s a culture that embodies hard-work and community. Our ranching industry is rich in history and grounded in traditions that have been carried forward for generations. In my images, I aim to share authentic experiences and interesting stories. Above all, I aim to portray our western way of life in an appealing and reputable manner.
