I got an email over the weekend from my old buddy, photographer Anthony Georgis. It announced the phenomenal corporate gig he just nailed that will send him on a 30 day classic American road trip, and pay him to boot. How rare! Anthony needs some folks to stay with during his journey, so I thought I’d pass along his email and info. Maybe his (still secret) client will pay for your Denny’s, if you’re super helpful.
I’ll also be running updates from Mr. Georgis while he on the road. We’re going to send him an Induro tripod of his choice to help him out. I wonder which one he’ll choose.
Here’s a picture of a lady with some rings, then Georgis’s note, and then more AG pictures.
Well, I have great news, but things are a bit crazy and I really need your help.
I just finalized the details on a job that sends me on a 30 day roadtrip across America shooting whatever I want and making my own itinerary. Everything came together at the last minute and I’m scheduled to leave first thing Monday morning (!!!)
The job is for —- and it’s a pretty incredible opportunity.
The assignment is to document “New America”. What that means is open to a lot of interpretation, but in general I’m looking for real, unique people and stories. Apple pie, gay pride, street racers, urban gardeners, Iraqi war veterans, twins, truck drivers named Jennifer, beauty queens, drag queens, the cast of the Hills, religion, fireworks, punk rockers, retirees, train jumpers and suburban housewives.
This isn’t one of those fancy kind of photoshoots – it’s just me with a camera and them being real.
I’m starting by heading to Eastern Oregon so the most immediate need is to find a story/destination there. After that my route goes down through California or Nevada to Grass Valley and Reno NV, then SF, Big Sur, Orange County, then East towards Marfa Texas, Austin, Tulsa OK, possibly up to Kansas City or anyplace in the midwest, then to Detroit and finally to western NY state and the New Jesrsy shore. With any luck I’ll end up in NYC then head back across the top of the US and hit the Dakotas and Wyoming. All that is subject to change of course….
If you have ANY ideas of people I should meet up with or destinations that I should try to see please get in touch.
Also – if you want to come along on any leg of the journey, let me know, there should be plenty of room in the Prius.
Thanks! I love you all!

Here are some lovely images by our friend Anthony. He’s got the road trip vibe thing going, for sure.
Though the client wants digital… bye bye, square.
Anthony is now in Oregon. Contact him!
