I love to create a calendar every year.
I find sharing what I’ve recently taken keeps my work fresh and new. It’s also a great way for me to get a small sampling of my work into the hands of my customers.
But this year will be a little different! This calendar features 12 photos that will be in my upcoming book! I’m thrilled to share with you that I’m in the works of having my very first photography art book published! It will be either an 8×8 or 10×8 hardcover coffee table book.
Not only am I a landscape photographer, I also happen to be a rancher’s wife. Our spread is located in central South Dakota so the open land of the prairie is where I spend the most time photographing. Living on a ranch also gives me daily access to our horses and the work of a cattleman. So, it seemed natural to combine these two loves into one book titled: South Dakota: Land & Sky, Where the Cowboys Roam.
The prairies are often overlooked and considered fly-over states. I’ve lived here for a total of 15 years and can’t imagine wanting to live anywhere else anymore. I do love to travel and explore this world but home is my little ranch house nestled on a hill overlooking the prairie. Since I’ve come to love this land so much, it’s become a joy to share the beauty of it with you.
By the end of August, I hope to have a rough draft of my book and a link for pre-orders. My desire is to have the books ready for delivery in early December.
‘South Dakota: Land & Sky, Where the Cowboys Roam’ 2017 Calendar is now available on Etsy.
Each calendar measures 8.5×11″, is spiral bound, and made of 120lb. glossy paper stock.
