Over the weekend, I traveled up the road to the Cumberland Gap. More specifically, I drove to Martin’s Station at Wilderness Road State Park in Virginia.
I was there to shoot images for this year’s Remington Poster Series. We had 1770’s period re-enactors, long rifles, Native Americans, and a whole bunch of fun.
If you get a chance, you should really go and visit Martin’s Station.
The original Martin’s Station played a relatively short but significant part in the history of southwestern Virginia and the early settlement of Kentucky. The station takes its name from Joseph Martin, who was born cir. 1740 in Albemarle County, Virginia.

I’d like to give a special thanks to Billy, Chris, Ryan, Ms. Baldwin, Ron, and the others who helped us to capture the life of the 1770’s hunter accurately.
I’ve included several images here for you.
