looking for photosWhitewater of the Southern Rockies
Calling all photographers and kayakers that know photographers. This is your chance to make the pages of the newest regional guidebook.
As we near our print deadline for the new Whitewater of the Southern Rockies guidebook we are putting out our first public call for photos. Since a new guidebook may be news to many of you, I'll spill the beansand unfortunatly refuse to reply to any of the questions that many of you may ask in this thread. It's not because I don't care, I just don't have the time with a looming deadline shortly ahead. Please be patient for more info, and I will tell you this in the meantime...
Whitewater of the Southern Rockies will come out sometime in the Spring of 2007. It is written by Evan Stafford and myself, Kyle McCutchen, and involves the help of many amazing individuals (some that you've heard of, and others you haven't). The guide covers the states of CO, NM, AZ, UT, and WY to varying extents. It is full color, durable, and thick (nearing 600 pages). There are more run descriptions than most paddlers will kayak in a lifetime.
We are looking for the following photos, and I've divided them by state to make it easier to look through. We are generally NOT looking for any other pictures of other runs, although if you have an amazing shot that we absolutely must see, feel free to send the one amazing shot. We will send the photographer a free book for any shot that we use, every photo will have photographer and subject credit, and that photographer will get a short bio in our contributors section. We appreciate the eye candy from all of you.
***If you didn't take the photograph, please ask the photographer that did to submit the photo for you.
Please send unedited pictures in tiff or jpeg format to kyle[dot]mccutchen[at]gmail[dot]com Any questions regarding a submission may be sent to the same email address.
DEADLINE for submissions: January 18th, 2007
