My name is Cheyne Walls and I am a landscape photographer based in Laguna Beach, CA.
MILES FROM LOS ANGELES is a photography book featuring images locations from the western United States. This book has been in the works for years with an idea of capturing these unique and magnificent landscapes.
All the locations are some of the most incredible in the United States, possibly the world. They are only a day’s drive or, as in the case with Hawaii, an easy flight from Los Angeles. Some of these places are a bit of a long drive, others are very close, but all locations are completely worth the travel. Each photograph in the book gives the location and distance from my starting mark, LAX Airport.
The photos you see here are a small sampling of what will be in the book.
All the images are of western U.S - from San Diego, CA to Portland, OR out to Aspen, CO and, one of my favorite locations, Hawaii.
My goal is to get people out in nature. I want my photographs to entice you to go to these locations and experience the beauty of nature for yourself. It’s been a dream of mine to put all my favorite images together in a high-quality book that I can share with friends, art collectors, and other nature enthusiasts. With your support, we can bring this project to life.

After printing on a top of the line metallic photographic paper it is left to dry and then cold-press mounted to a piece of optical acrylic. This protects the piece from dust, humidity and UV rays to prevent fading while showcasing the fantastic image quality, with a vibrant clarity of colors and awesome depth of contrast. All are a floating version and comes “Ready to Hang.”
I will personally deliver this photograph to any backer in the Southern California area. Details to be coordinated after the completion of the campaign. For those out of the area, the photograph will be shipped to you and I will post a video to my social media channels thanking you for your support.

Risks and challenges
Most of the challenges involved in creating this book are already behind us. All the photographs have been taken, the design is complete and we have already confirmed a printer to create a high end quality photo book that I am sure you will enjoy. The only challenge that could arise would be potential production delays. Extra time has been given to the delivery schedule in case of any unforeseen delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
