Fujifilm celebrates The Greatest American Road Trip by offering everyone the opportunity to enter the "April Sweepstakes" and win the FUJIFILM cameras and lenses these photographers rely on as they capture the beauty of all 59 National Parks.
Valhalla, N.Y. and Washington, D.C., April 1, 2016 – During the month of April, photographers Jonathan Irish and Stefanie Payne are visiting the National Parks of the legendary “Old West,” as part of their epic year-long quest to capture the raw beauty and breathtaking scenery of all 59 U.S. National parks in 52 weeks. “The “Greatest American Road Trip” was conceived to celebrate the Centennial of the U.S. National Park Service, and Fujifilm is proud to support this celebration.
Jonathan Irish, who has photographed for many notable publications and media outlets including National Geographic, The New York Times, CNN, and BBC, and Stefanie Payne, a former creative product development lead for NASA, began their journey on January 1, 2016 in the warmer climates of the Everglades, Dry Tortugas and Biscayne Parks. They are now visiting the National Parks of the fabled Old West, including Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Saguaro, Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, Zion and Great Basin – characterized by rugged rock formations, geologic wonder and stark desert landscapes.
Jonathan and Stefanie are shooting with FUJIFILM X-Series digital cameras and equipment, including the award-winning weather resistant FUJIFILM X-T1 mirrorless camera and FUJINON XF lenses, and the FUJIFILM INSTAX® Instant Film cameras to uniquely capture America’s greatest treasures and chronicle their experience.
After each park visit is concluded, photos and content from that park is being posted to their website and social media sites: www.TheGreatestRoadTrip.com, www.facebook.com/59in52, @Jonathan_Irish, @MagnumJI, @iStefPayne
