Pleased to see the print version of a recent “road trip” style journalism assignment for New Mexico Magazine, covering historic Route 66, also known as The Mother Road!

Many of the images that I posted to Instagram from the road, in real time, are now in the print edition of the cover story! Written by Amanda Kooser, including additional photographs by Julien McRoberts, the story titled “25 Reasons to Love Route 66” proves that iPhone photography and Instagram are valuable to both the photographer and the traditional magazine audience!

The idea was to capture the “feel” of a road trip along this historic highway…postcards from the open road. In a sense, I was able to bring the reader along every step of the way! Instagram allowed me to shoot in a style that was spontaneous and immediate, a huge advantage in telling this travel story. 

In addition to the feature story, the magazine editors also published a personal essay titled, “My Grandfather, ‘Dub'” under the section A~ha! NM Found.

Both stories are in the March edition of New Mexico Magazine on stands now. The magazine also has an excellent website in addition to their social media feeds!

Enjoy the journey down the two lane blacktop…
