Hello there and welcome to my new blog about barns and photography, A Barn a Day. I'd like to introduce you to myself. My name is Jason Burchard and I'm a writer/photographer/father/casino worker from Paoli, Indiana. I was born in Bedford, Indiana and went to Indiana University where I earned my bachelors in Marketing in 2001. Currently I work as a dealer/supervisor at a casino. It isn't my dream job but it helps pay the bills. Back in November 2012 I started an old time photo studio in West Baden. The shop has been a challenge for sure but has been very rewarding for me. Today on my way to open up shop, I spotted some crows on top of a barn, so I whipped back around to snap a good picture. Afterwards, I started to think about how I love barn photos and there are so many around here, that I could start this blog. So, here it is. They won't all be taken the day of, but I will do my best to have a new barn photo each day. Some might be the same barn but from a different angle or time of day, but I think this could be interesting. Plus, I'll tell all the adventures associated with hunting for and photographing the barns. I hope this will turn out to be fun for all of us.
