HOW IT WORKS

Are you building a barn?
Renovating a barn?
Wondering how to make your barn more “Green”?
Here’s your chance to get EXPERT advice for free!

Send in photos or a one minute video of your barn. If your barn is selected, John Blackburn will provide feedback and tips on making your barn bright, ventilated and safe for your horse. We will present his feedback (via wildaboutbarns.com) and alert you when it’s posted!
So grab a camera and let’s get started!
  • Send at least 10 photos
  • LANDSCAPE orientation (think about your tv, its a rectangle on it’s side, not standing tall…if you are using a phone, turn it sideways)
  • Avoid shots staring directly at the sun unless you are going for a silhouette effect
  • Close-ups are great, please include them, but don’t forget the WIDE shots!!
  • If you are shooting in a dark barn, try your best to open doors/windows/shutters…Dark photos don’t work well
  • Send the largest file size possible
  • Don’t forget those WIDE shots
The first 10 people to submit their barn for review will receive a copy of the Season 1 DVD of Wild About Barns!!
