Dump truck driver, butcher, fireman — all traditionally male-dominated profession. Photographer Chris Crisman from Penn valley, California, created a photo project that you can call this an ode to the strong and courageous women who have mastered the typical male profession.
Crisman, always looking for unusual topics for filming. Randomly talking with one of the clients he met Heather Marold Thomason, butcher and owner of Primal Supply Meats from Philadelphia. So began his photo project.

The photographer shoots a lot of pharmaceutical companies and engaged in their own project during the break between commercial shoots. He was able to work with a breeder of pigs, the driver of the truck, taksidermistka, a female carpenter and a female firefighter. For many of these professions in the English language even has no name in the feminine (not to mention Russian).

“I usually shoot with a large depth of field to create a balance between the character and the moment,” says the photographer. The details in the background tell about the main character shooting no less than the images of these women.

Crisman hopes his photo project will affect both portrayed girls and women in the culture. He noted that in the magazines often sees a material about professions and work that appeal to boys and to girls mainly focus on how to look beautiful.
