I started Missoula Rabble after I was challenged to take a photo a day by my co-worker Fritz Statler. As I took a picture a day, I started to introduce myself to strangers on the street, interview them, take their photograph, and post a blurb with their portrait on my Instagram and Facebook page. This made me realize that everyone has a story to tell and I'm giving these every day people a chance to tell it. 

Missoula Rabble has taken off and become a very important project to me. I have taken over a hundred photographs of random strangers in Missoula and told their story through my interviews and writing. I have received an incredibly encouraging and positive response from the community of Missoula. I want to turn Missoula Rabble into a book so these photographs of people during this time don't get lost in space. I want the people of Missoula to be able to have this to show the future generations. I don't know how many times I have walked into Charlie B's and admired the beautiful photographs on the walls. I want the Missoula Rabble book to have the same effect on people.

I am publishing the book through Milltown Press, a local publishing company in Missoula.  The estimated cost to design and publish a few hundred copies of this book is currently estimated at $7500. I will also be showing the Missoula Rabble series at Blaque Owl Tatoo.  Kickstarter will also fund my prints and framing for this process. I also want to use Kickstarter funding to pay the people who have helped me make all of this possible.

Please help fund and support my kickstarter project so Missoula Rabble can be a book and the series of photos won't get lost on the web. My series can't go on forever, but the photographs can always live on with your help.  

A huge huge thank you to everyone who has followed, wrote words of encouragement, and helped me make Missoula Rabble what it is today. If it weren't for the support from this wonderful community I don't think it could have survived.  Thank you!!

Risks and challenges

There could be some technical problems designing and publishing the book, but that is why we are starting this so early so that if those problems do arise, we have time to fix the kinks and get the book out by September.
