How We Got Started
We are grateful to Alec Shaw and the Shaw Family Fund for the financial support that has made it possible for us to begin a journey that we have long wanted to undertake. Alec has been a strong supporter of the project since our first meeting over coffee in late 2010. He’s asked tough questions, offered valuable advice and lent a hand carrying equipment on location in the parks for a couple shoots.
Back on July 12, 2011, before we got the Story Project officially underway, Alec, his son Frankie, and Doug visited Pt. Reyes National Seashore to meet with the project’s fiscal sponsor, the Pt. Reyes National Seashore Association. They also made time to learn a little about the park’s Morgan horses from Debbie McMurray, one of the park’s outstanding volunteer caretakers.
