Hello there, we are I Must Be Dead and Mohawk! Photographers based out of Phoenix, Arizona. This year we'll be going to Burning Man for the first time in our lives, and we thought it would be really neato if we could document our stay for you guys in the form of a photography book and behind the scenes video! We believe if we were was sent out there with the right equipment and such, that we could capture Burning Man in a way that hasn't been done before. We plan to produce some really amazing images for you guys, and slap them all in a fine art book for all your damn coffee tables. This is a non-profit book, and will only be given the donators of this project! In additon we also plan to film the whole thing, and whatever kind of shinananigans we get ourselves into, and if you guys follow our work, you know we get into some weird ass shit. So we think it would be lots of fun for everyone to send us on this adventure, and let us produce the best flippen Burning Man Photo Book anyone has seen!

UPDATE!!!! - There has been some concern about whether Burning Man would allow this to happen or not, and just wanted to let you know we have their official go ahead and blessing yay!

Before we explain what exactly the funds are needed for, let us show you some samples of our work to get you excited about what type of stuff you can look forward to seeing in the book!







- Ok now that you are back, we'll explain to you why exactly we need the funding!

 - The main reason we are going to need funding for this book is because it will be non-profit. We aren't allowed to sell a book involved with burning man, so all the printing cost have to be upfront from donators, and donators will be the absoloute only people who get the book! 

- In addition, getting to burning man with the right equipment and set up is costly, we want to make sure we have all the right tools and materials at our exposure in order to take the type of photographs we want. This requires large vehicle rental and photo equipment rental.


A Sample of what the book might look like, this is a mock up I Must Be Dead book, to give you an idea of what you will get. Also a picture of postcards!
