Limited Time Pre-Order Book Discount for “Blaze Orange – Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin”

May 27, 2014 Travis Dewitz




“When Photographer Travis Dewitz set out to capture the essence of Wisconsin deer hunting in pictures, he took on an extraordinarily ambitious challenge. From blaze orange hung on the clothesline, to the patient expectations of first light, to bucks hanging heavy on the meat pole, Blaze Orange delivers what words often cannot, the true feeling of the Wisconsin deer season.”—Bob Willging, author of History Afield: Stories of the Golden Age of Wisconsin Sporting Life and On the Hunt: The History of Deer Hunting in Wisconsin


My first book, Blaze Orange – Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin, is now available at a limited time discounted pre-order price online at Amazon. I will admit that it is very exciting to see all the work that it took to get to this point come together to form Blaze Orange. The pre-order price is only available until the book is release in September 2014. The foreword was written by Thomas Garver whom has been involved with multiple books, ironically even a couple of railroad books which is one of my passions. I will be signing copies at the launch of Blaze Orange in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association convention on Thursday October 2nd. I can’t wait to see some of you there.

Travis Dewitz

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
