Battle Born, Nevada Proud

Nevada Photographers Day II Captures our Love for the Silver State.
BY MATTHEW B. BROWN
When we hosted our inaugural Nevada Photographers Day in Virginia City on March 16, 2013, we knew we wanted to hold a truly statewide photography event at a later date. What better way to challenge our talented pool of photographers than by sending them out to document the state’s 149th-birthday celebrations? We asked lovers of the lens to capture our Nevada pride during Nevada Day Weekend, October 25-27.
From Beatty to Carson City, and Las Vegas to Reno, the submissions poured in. We were treated to a smorgasbord of images ranging from historical re-enactors to hot-air balloons. “Participating in both Photographers Days has been a great opportunity for me,” says Carson City’s Sandi Whitteker. “It stimulated me to think outside the box to capture photos that would really bring the events to life for Nevada Magazine readers.”
Good Ol’-Fashioned Fun
