    Big Sky Country Slideshow: It’s the most colorful time of the year

    Fall in Montana, does it get any better?

    Not really. In honor of that, here’s a little slideshow Thursday pick-me-up courtesy of our wonderful Facebook friends. They have been showing off the colors of Montana’s fall quite a bit lately and it’s awesome.

    Thanks to all the photographers who let us share their work.

    Enjoy!

  • Meet the people who make Montana Magazine

    Each issue of Montana Magazine includes about 12 features, from our Portfolio photography spread to a handful of features from around the state. In all it’s about 15,000 words and dozens of photos. That you probably know.

    We also want our readers to know a little bit more about the talented group of people who bring write the words and make the images that fills each issue. They really are a great group – from retired journalists to full-time photographers who make a living making images from across Montana to historians to the deputy director of the department of commerce.

    Obow virtuoso-w600-h400ne, Jeremy Lurgio, (who made the images for the story in the March/April issue about Missoula bowyer Jim Rempp) is a adjunct professor of photojournalism at the University of Montana who has taken countless photos across the state while working as a professional photographer.

    Many do work for the magazine for the same reason readers read it: They love Montana.

    To help give readers a better idea of who our contributors are we began including a contributors pages in each issue. We have a contributors page online at MontanaMagazine.com . It’s a compilation of all the writers and photographers who have contributed their work to Montana Magazine in 2014. We’ll add more as the year goes on. 

    Check it out. Chances are you know one or two of the contributors, this is Montana, right?
