1859 Magazine approached me about photographing their cover for the upcoming 2014 summer issue. 1859's concept was simple, show backpacking in one of its simplest forms from the back. The 1859 crew all converged at Lookout Mountain in the Ochocos where this was shot. Other than some tremendously low blood sugar on the models part it seemed to work out nicely.
Here are a couple more photo options for the cover that didn't make the cut for the July | August Issue. Check out a short little video on behind the scenes on 1859's Magazines site (HERE)
