If you’ve read our book, Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch, or followed us on Facebook, you’ve already gotten a behind the scenes look at the 26 cowboys who work on the Waggoner. Now, we’re taking you behind the scenes of the making of the book!
Cowboys of the Waggoner Ranch is photographer Jeremy Enlow’s first book. Inspired by the history of the ranch and its uncertain fate while up for sale, he set to work photographing the cowboys who work on the Waggoner. Throughout the process, he captured more than 14,000 images, like the one of Bobby Daniel (below), Waggoner cowboy since 1965.

Enlow moved fast, photographing and producing the book in only 6 months. Its success was equally swift, with the first run selling out in only 10 days. From the beginning, this book has been a hands-on, family affair with everyone pitching in.

Over the next few months, we’ll be taking you behind the scenes to show you the making of the book and the people who have brought it to life. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter so that you never miss a story!
