The Ag Project

Stewart Schulze specializes in creating art from the ordinary. Where others see dust and dirt, he sees image of incredible beauty. Stewart's latest photographic collection focuses on the farms and ranches of San Joaquin Valley, and the splendor of them all; the same splendor so many overlook every single day. Taken from right here in Hilmar and surrounding areas, "The Ag Project" is a self-funded labor-of-love, requiring Stewart to be out the door most mornings before the sun rises.

Watching the farmers through the camera's lens has given Stewart a unique appreciation (and perspective) for this vital industry. "My goal is to make people pause and think, and to see through my eyes the wonders surrounding those of us lucky enough to call the Central Valley home," he proudly says. A Hilmar native, Stewart Schulze still resides on his family's 20 acre ranch. When not sharing his appreciation for the lost art of farming through his prints (with plans for a hard cover coffee table book in the near future), Stewart spends his time photographing families, high school students, pets, weddings and just about anything else that might step in front of his camera. Stewart has been a professional photographer for 26 years, and is the proud owner of Stewart Schulze Photographic Artist. He holds the title of Master Craftsmen Photographer from the Professional Photographers of America, and is the current president of the Professional Photographers of California
