This afternoon, Walker contacted me with some long awaited news and an attached proof of the book’s cover. The History Press, our publisher, has confirmed our official release date – September 18 2009. The book will be distributed in retail stores & vineyards throughout the state. Our publicist is already busy scheduling publicity events, tours, lectures, signings… etc.
On Saturday, I was quite excited to find the September issue of Northern Virginia Magazine in my mailbox. Although I was anxious to see my images… I was absolutely floored when I saw the design work of the features that I photographed. As I’ve grown to expect, the layouts and graphics are contemporary and visually stunning. The stylization of the design work compliments the color palette of my imagery & demands the attention of the reader. This is a must see issue… pick one up when you get a chance!
I was psyched to be working this morning with my good friend and avid cyclist, Casson Hersh. Cass is an all around inspiring guy with an unrivaled spirit for epic adventure. In the summer of ’08, he and fellow cyclist, Ryan Gerasimowicz, took a month off to bike from Seattle to San Francisco. They road along the Pacific Coast… biked everyday & camped every night!
Unfortunately. Zach’s time here was short lived… and in 2006, he moved back to Minneapolis. I miss his eccentric intellect, aesthetic inspiration, and (most of all) his friendship.
